Ambassador's Message

On the Source of the Nile Bridge with Minister of Works and Transport, Hon. Eng. Ntege Azuba and Ambassador Kameda
Thank you for visiting the website of the Embassy of Japan in the Republic of Uganda. The year-end festive season is almost around the corner. Still deep in my memory, however, lingering are serious natural disasters which took place during this year in Japan as well as in Uganda. I truly pray that the victims’ souls rest in peace and send my sincere sympathies to the families of those victims.

The commissioning of the Source of the Nile Bridge at Jinja in last Ocotber, largely financed by Japan and constructed by a consortium whose main partner is Japanese Zenitaka Corporation, has attracted tremendous attention of Ugandan people. I, as a person representing Japan here in Uganda, have received a great number of “thank you” messages from various Ugandans. I am very proud of the Japanese contribution to the construction of this landmark bridge, which I am sure will bring more prosperity and brighter future to Uganda and the EAC region.

I take this opportunity to renew my determination to extend any possible support for further development of Japan-Uganda relations in 2019. I wish all of you good health and success in your respective fields.

December 2018
