Senegalese- American singer Aliaune Damala Badara Akon Thiam is set to meet President Museveni this week at the latter’s country home in Rwakitura, a Senior Presidential Advisor on Diaspora Affairs Abbey Walusimbi has confirmed.
According to Abbey Walusimbi, the Senior Presidential Advisor on Diaspora affairs, Akon’s visit is a follow-up of an earlier visit by his wife Rozina Negusei earlier in February which ended with a promise to return with husband and investors.
“Akon will be arriving in the country tomorrow, Thursday and is coming as a potential investor . He will be here to explore more investment opportunities,”Walusimbi said.
He noted that the Senegalese singer has established himself as a big investor after recently acquiring a mine in the Democratic Republic of Congo but has also set up several investments including the Akon city back home in Senegal.
“Indeed if all goes well, you never know he might end up setting another Akon city in Uganda.” Abbey Walusimbi said.
