“Through video conferencing, I joined fellow Heads of State from IGAD member countries for the 37th Extraordinary Summit chaired by Prime Minister of the Republic of Sudan H.E Dr. Abdallah Hamdok.
We discussed the implementation of the revitalized agreement on the resolution of the conflict in the Republic of South Sudan. In addition, challenges occasioned by the COVID-19 pandemic on our economies, security, and other regional matters.
I am happy to report that Uganda’s effort, in concert with the Regional Response Strategy has so far been able to test 226,000 people. In addition, only 1040 of these having been found positive, with an impressive 984 recoveries registered and no deaths. The virus is still a big threat and I call upon member states to direct co-operation towards accelerating the diagnosis processes, developing anti-COVID treatment, and a vaccine.
While some aspects of the economy have taken a hit, many essential parts such as industry and agriculture have remained functional. As such, we shall continue to avail our food resources through trade, with brotherly countries facing shortages.
I congratulate stakeholders on upholding the revitalized peace agreement of South Sudan. I encourage them to work quickly through this transition period, plan and hold free and fair elections as the ultimate cure for politically motivated instability by promoting accountability among leaders,” Museveni posted.
