Tuesday, 17th December 2019
Equatorial Guinea President, Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo, has urged African leaders to work together and end the refugee situation, saying the African people need peace and good governance for development.

“Uganda is a good model that can be emulated and inspire the whole continent on how to handle refugees. I congratulate the people of Uganda and my dear brother President Yoweri Museveni for the appropriate policies in handling refugees,” he said.

President Mbasogo, the first African leader to tour refugee settlements in Uganda, was recently on an on-spot visit to the Kiryandongo refugee settlement to see how refugees and the host communities have managed to live together and share the same facilities and services without conflict. He visited Panyandoli Health Centre 111 and vocation Centre before addressing the community.

“Lets work together to put an end to this situation. African people need peace and good governance to thrive. Am re-affirming my commitment to this cause. We should pull resources and join the fight against conflict and displacement", he said.
