Your Excellency the Vice President;

Honourable Ministers;

Your Excellencies - Ambassadors and High Commissioners;

Honourable Members of Parliament;

Older Persons of Uganda;

Ladies and Gentlemen.


I congratulate all the Older Persons on this day when Uganda joins the rest of the world to mark the International Day of Older Persons. The observance of this day gives an opportunity to Government and the Private Sector to reflect on the challenges that older persons continue to face. We also observe this day to evaluate the interventions made towards promoting the general welfare of our older persons and appreciate their contribution to society.
