The High Commissioner of Uganda to India, Joyce Kakuramatsi Kikafunda, expressed her confidence in India’s presidency of the G20 and believes that India can be the voice of the Global South.

Kikafunda stated that India is already on its way to becoming a superpower and is ahead of some big countries who have forgotten how it was, but believes India knows their issues and will bring them up to the G20. Kikafunda also reflected on External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar’s recent visit to Uganda, calling it beautiful and expressing her pride in the opening of the University of Forensic Sciences, the first of its kind in Africa. She also mentioned that the bilateral relationships between India and Uganda are strong and focused on trade and investment and that Uganda sees India as an elder brother, hoping the relationship will continue along with development assistance.

Kikafunda made these comments while participating in a women entrepreneurs conference hosted by Baroness Verma. EAM Jaishankar was on a visit to Uganda and Mozambique from April 10-15 to further strengthen India’s “strong bilateral relations” with the two countries.
