High Commissioner Amb. Paul Amoru Presents Letters of Credence to Botswana

Gaborone. In a moment filled with diploma importance and solemn reflection, High Commissioner Amb. Paul Amoru presented his Letters of Credence to His Excellency Dr. Mokgweetsi Eric Keabetswe Masisi, President of the Republic of Botswana.

The occasion also saw High Commissioner Amb. Amoru conveying warm regards from H.E. Gen. Yoweri Kaguta Museveni, President of the Republic of Uganda, along with his best wishes for the enduring relationship between the two sister countries.

The ceremony, held with great reverence, also served as a solemn tribute to the late Namibian President, His Excellency Dr. Hage Geingob. Both nations paid homage to President Geingob’s legacy (a distinguished statesman and a symbol of the liberation struggle) and celebrated the historical discussions held at the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) and South Summits, which further fortified the enduring bond between Botswana and Uganda.

President Masisi warmly welcomed High Commissioner Amb. Amoru and expressed gratitude to H.E. President Museveni for the warm reception and hospitality he accorded to him while in Kampala on the sidelines of the 19th Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) Summit and the 3rd South Summit of the Group of 77+ China. In January, President Museveni hosted President Masisi in a strategic bilateral meeting underlining the strong ties between the two nations.

Bilateral discussions held during the Summits brought to light key areas of collaboration between Botswana and Uganda, including the urgent need for intervention in the current outbreak of foot and mouth diseases in Uganda, as well as potential partnerships in the dairy industry and animal health technology transfer. President Masisi also visited Makerere University Innovation Hub, Kiira Motors Corporation Plant and the Source of River Nile in Jinja. 

Amb. Amoru expressed gratitude that the home Botswana has provided to hundreds of Ugandans working in various sectors, reflecting the symbiotic relationship between the two countries.

High Commissioner Amb. Amoru also took the opportunity to present the Letters of Recall of his predecessor, Amb. Barbra Nekesa Oundo, and the Letters of Credence appointing him as High Commissioner Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Republic of Uganda to the Republic of Botswana.

The ceremony concluded with expressions of thanks and a reaffirmation of commitment to strengthening the bilateral ties between Botswana and Uganda through the establishment of a Joint Commission for Cooperation to provide and deepen collaboration in various sectors starting with Agriculture. 

This significant event marks a new chapter in the diplomatic relations between the two sister countries, paving the way for deeper cooperation and mutual benefit.
