Kampala, Uganda, 17 December 2015
… On behalf of President Yoweri Museveni, I would like to thank His Highness The Aga Khan for your long-standing commitment to the social and economic development of Uganda.
This morning, HE President Museveni conducted a very significant ceremony of breaking the ground for the construction of Aga Khan University Hospital. It is significant because Government is committed to providing quality healthcare to our citizens—and this collaboration with the Aga Khan is part of that endeavor.
I would like to salute the Aga Khan, because in every area that His Highness works, whether it is building the Bujagali dam, or the Serena Hotel, we always see a mark of excellence. I am confident that the Aga Khan University Hospital will be at the same level of excellence, if not even higher.
… The Aga Khan hospital will save lives. Its impact will be felt not only in Uganda but in the entire region. The Aga Khan University Hospital will do for healthcare what the Serena has done for hospitality in Uganda.
I welcome this investment which will have a ripple effect on development throughout the country, improving quality of life for all.
