India To Train Ugandans In Atomic Energy

By Stephen Wandera

India has offered to train Ugandans in atomic energy and space exploration.

The offer was announced by visiting India’s Vice President Mohammed Ansari while addressing journalists at a news conference with President Yoweri Museveni at State House Entebbe.

The media briefing was after a bilateral meeting that centred on strengthening political and economic cooperation between India and Uganda.

President Museveni told his guest that Uganda, like any other African country, still faces a challenge of bottlenecks in the education, health and infrastructure among others.

He also hailed the India and Uganda longstanding political relationship and that the two countries fought colonialism together in the struggle for freedom and independence.

Mr Ansari will later this afternoon meet the Speaker of Parliament Rebecca Kadaga at her office in Kampala.
