  • Dear Organisers, It was a great initiative but i would like an implementation and physical manifestation of the outcomes of this Forum” James

  • There is need for more of such kinds of Forum to help us engage Diasporas more. The potential is immense for the country, but the NRM needs to come up with good icentives to lure us back home otherwise too much corruption and nepotism.

  • Tirupati Uganda a Big fraud, Con company operated by a bunch of crooks. Just dig in their history and you will find. They talk big and have no back up, lots of loans . Using Ugandians like slave and paying peanuts, giving substandard products and charging a lot.
    A company not be trusted.

  • “The seminars were excellent. I wanted to see every session, with speakers from all over. However I was dissapointed by the answer from Hon. Okello the Minister of State for Foreign Affairs who could not justify why the $300 fee to apply.

    The sessions were packed, showing a real appetite for information and advice on opportunities i Uganda for Diaspora. Well done the organisers and looking forward to seeing you in 2012.

  • The Seminars were very helpful and interesting – I didn’t expect that high quality at an event that is for free. Coming from Scotland I could not wait for the After party hoping I will this time.

  • If this was a government funded event, how come we paid at the After-Party. I tried to get in touch with Equity bank but failed, please get me the proper contacts.

  • Looking forward to be this year there, I love the experience I had a last year, this is one event Ugandans all over the world should be proud of, it’s been put together by a tested and trusted Ugandans,keep the wonderful work going guys.This event sure helps promote our Uganda in a very positive light.

    This year why not bring the private sector instead of government officials. How come the UIA didn’t participate last year!

    We need it! KUDOS!

  • Hi organiser,

    How does one get the video made of the Convention?

    Many people are asking for follow up, any chance of setting up microsites on the convention website for Q&A, I would be happy to engage with those asking about Financial Markets. There is also a need to provide information on a Diaspora office in the UK and you guys have the momentum on this, please do something. There’s a lot of positive feed back. Ida, your response on google was so professional and that’s the way to go.

    My regards,


  • Dear Mr Mutenza,

    Thank you for granting Africa Job Station a complimentary exhibition table at the recent convention. We received a lot of good publicity and learned valuable lessons to take our cause forward in a more effective manner.

    Once again, thanks for the complimentary table. I trust we shall continue to build a mutually beneficial working relationship.

    Kind regards,

    Moses Otim

  • To whom it may concern.

    I applaud you all for organising such a big event and making it possible is a credit. However short comings are expected and to improve you need to learn from any mistakes made and getting positive feed backs.

    I for one enjoyed the day’s programme however I would suggest the organiser should come up with resolutions or form up committees to follow up ideas brought up or challenged by the participants so that such information should be addressed and brought back to the next convention.

    The convention should be used as platform between Ugandans living in the Diaspora and the Uganda government and both parties should be learning from each other and solve problems through dialogue.

    On the evening show, please avoid bringing back Bobi Wine and his crew. He was a disgrace and didn’t know what he was doing. Being that it was karaoke people needed continuous music to dance and enjoy the show but not to blow his own trumpet and vendetta with Bebe Cool. We paid to listen and dance to their best songs and none came of Bobi Wine. Iryn and Judith were fantastic.

    Lastly is there a chance to have a music band playing side by side with the singing stars than singing on CD’s? At times there were echo and repeats in the song. Finally can the security on the stage be paramount? As much as people want to dance and show off the stage should be exclusively to the singing crew. Otherwise, well done guys I am looking forward for the 3rd convention next year.

  • Vote of thanks

    Dear Willy,

    Just a quick note to say thank you for organising the wonderful convention last Saturday gone.

    Please could you also thank a lady called ~Sophie who organised a table for Rupert – it was very much appreciated.

    Rupert had a good turn up for inquiries and to top it all up a very good time in the evening.

    Now please could you do me a favour if you can
    • tell me if that lady who talked about land is still around and how I can reach her.
    • Does the free tax on Agricultural equipment and machinery cover Pick-ups
    • Is the immigration person who spoke about dual citizenship still here and how can we reach him?

    Will be grateful for a quick response.
