Bethel | 95timefm


Ugandan cabinet ministers will starting next week undergo compulsory Kiswahili lessons to enhance their proficiency in the language.

The development was revealed by the First Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for East African Community Affairs Rebecca Kadaga today while speaking during the opening ceremony of the second annual East African Court of Justice judicial conference at Mestil Hotel in Kampala.

The Minister noted that the Ugandan government attaches special importance to the issue of integration and to this she said is committed to ensuring a common language adopted by the East African Community.

In July, the Ugandan government made Kiswahili language compulsory in both primary and secondary schools in the country after making it the second national language.
