During his national address on 23 May 2022, Yoweri Museveni also spoke about the diaspora.
Uganda generated a big diaspora.
Mainly because of our stagnant history
Many people ran away during the time of Amin, UPC.
They went abroad during the time of (..) & Obote
They stayed there, they have had children, they have a big group there.
But sometimes they get all sorts of…
Good political ideas but also bad political ideas
So the ESO officer should monitor them, should link up with them
and diffuse… the negative and encourage the positive.
That should be part of his mandate.
As can be seen in this clip posted by @USA_NUP(
On this website we find data to which countries Ugandans have emigrated: https://migrants-refugees.va/country-profile/uganda/
If you look around the diaspora community in countries like US, UK, Germany & Netherlands you see that most are first generation immigrants in the age group 20-45. They left Uganda when Museveni was already president.
The remark by Museveni, saying that people in majority fled to the diaspora under his predecessors, is nonsense.
