The president of Uganda, Yoweri Museveni, landed his helicopter on the RG soccer field on August 12th. President Museveni was headed to the nearby village of Karuma to celebrate the launching of the hydroelectric plant that is scheduled to be built on the Nile and bring much needed power to the region.
Though touring or speaking at Restoration Gateway was not on his agenda for the day, President Museveni took time out of his very busy schedule to greet the RG kids. Our president has a great love for children, and he paused to encourage them that day. In just 14 months RG has hosted both the First Lady and the President of Uganda! President Musevini assured us that he would come back for a proper tour of RG.
