By AFAYO SHADRACH BETHEL
The Senior Presidential Advisor on Diaspora Affairs, Amb. Abbey Walusimbi has revealed that government has finalized plans to train all migrant workers in patriotism so that they can become Uganda’s good will Ambassadors in their host countries.
While speaking to over 100 girls during the launch of a program titled, “Agricultural Income for Females in Labor- in Kayunga district, Walusimbi noted that a number of Ugandans who have traveled abroad as migrant workers have turned against their country by propagating negativity especially through social media due to lack of patriotism.
The Museveni advisor said that despite the negativity around labor externalization, there is need to acknowledge that this project was initiated by the president who lobbied different countries to offer employment opportunities to Ugandans and many are so far benefiting out of it.
