President Museveni agreed, emphasizing that the present refugee and migrant crisis from Africa and Middle East to Europe is partly caused by a few people monopolizing decision making for the whole world.

“We totally agree with Japan that it’s not in order to have a small group of countries monopolizing decision making for the whole world. The present chaos in the world is partly caused by that mistake. If you see the Middle Eastern people and Africans invading Europe as refugees….these are products of mistakes made by some actors who are responsible for these mistakes.”

“That huge human suffering….these mistakes must be stopped by collective wisdom, ” he said.

President Museveni said Africa is insisting on reform of the United Nations Security Council and also having equal rights.

“Japan with the other members of the Group of four have a slightly different position when it comes ‘not on whether but on how’. Therefore I benefit a lot when I come here and discuss with the prime minister to get the logic of the G4. We shall continue to exchange views on this processes,” he said.

The President who is on a four day official visit to Japan and is accompanied by the First Lady Janet Museveni thanked the Prime Minister for the invitation and sympathized with the people of Japan over the floods that hit their country.


Museveni hailed the government of Japan for the support to Uganda over years since 1966 especially in the area of infrastructure development.

He said Japan has done good work in Uganda in the field of electricity, as far as new bridge across the River Nile is concerned, rehabilitation of some hospitals, infrastructure of roads in Kampala and also rehabilitation of northern Uganda after the insurgency.

“I now would like to encourage Japanese companies to come and invest in Africa. It is the best win-win approach. When those companies make money we also make money, they create jobs and produce products everybody gains,” he said.

The President said in the last 300 or so years when capitalism started developing, one of the crisis of capitalism was shortage of markets, mainly because of the depression in 1929.

“Even some of the recent crisis in global economy is over issue of markets. Africa is a huge continent with a growing population. Once it has transformed to middle class society, it will enhance consumption not only for our benefit but for benefit of the whole world. When you buy what I produce you are supporting me. When I buy what you are producing am supporting you. Therefore assisting Africa to enhance its purchasing power is not only in the interest Africa but in the interest of the whole world,” he said.
