Museveni opens Uganda's new chancery building in Kigali

The work on the new chancery building started in 2013.

President Yoweri Museveni has this morning opened the new Uganda High Commission Chancery in Kigali, Rwanda.

Guests at the ceremony included Foreign Affairs minister, Sam Kutesa and Uganda's High Commissioner to Kigali, Ambassador Richard Kabonero.

The Uganda High Commission to Kigali is located on top of Nyarutarama Hill in Kigali; six km from City Center.

The work on the new chancery building started in May 2013 and took 18 months, according to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.




The works cost the government Sh8.7b, the ministry said.

The Chancery was built by Seyani Brothers who are also the contractors who built the Auditor General's office.

The new chancery complex is three floors and has two apartments and a gym for guests.





"The building was completed within time and within the budget. It was built on a plot that the government acquired from the Kagera Basin Organization," the ministry said.

"The building will save the government of Uganda sh400m in rent annually."

The President will later join regional counterparts for the 12th Summit of the Northern Corridor integration projects.
