President Museveni has warned European Union (EU) envoys to stay out of matters that they don’t understand emphasisizing that Uganda and the EU are not adversaries and should focus on strengthening their shared goals.
Mr. Museveni delivered the stern warning yesterday in a meeting with EU Ambassadors at State House Entebbe. The envoys were led by Mr Attilio Pacifici.
The others in the delegation were Mr Per Lindgarde of Sweden, Mr William Carlos (Ireland), Mr Rudi Veestraeten (Belgium), Mr Jules Armand Ania Mbossou (France), Mr Nicolaj Itejberg Peterson (Denmark), Mr Massimiliano Mazzanti (Italy), Mr Mathias Schauer (Germany), Ms Karin Boven (Netherlands) and Dr Roswitha Kremser of Austria.
“For us we don’t see you as enemies, remove all the diversions and concentrate on the shared goals and help one another for the prosperity of our people,” Mr Museveni told the Ambassadors.
He cautioned the envoys against what he termed as “involvement in matters that they are not conversant with”, something that that he said could have “serious consequences.”
“By involving yourselves in matters that you don’t understand, even if you do understand, you should not get involved because this kind of misconduct can lead to many serious consequences and suffering of the people like it happened in some African countries,” he said.
