On behalf of the United States of America, I congratulate the people of Uganda on the 61st anniversary of Uganda’s independence. Over the last 61 years, the American and Ugandan people have partnered to advance health, regional security, economic investment, agriculture, and education. The United States continues to support Ugandans in the pursuit of democracy, respect for human rights, peace, and prosperity for all.
