Tourism My Uganda
Uganda’s Minister of Tourism, Wildlife and Antiquities, Hon. Prof. Ephraim Kamuntu has launched a social media campaign to encourage natives and visitors to share their experience of the country under the slogan My Uganda.
My Uganda will share impressions, experiences and memories of the country, it’s people, wildlife, scenery and culture through social media channels Facebook and Twitter.
Contributors will load videos and photographs and publish their written reflections onto a dedicated Facebook page (www.facebook.com/MyUganda). Those who prefer to be more brief will use the hashtag #myuganda on the micro-blogging site Twitter.
“I hope that as we celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of our independence Ugandans and our international friends will embrace My Uganda as a way in which we can tell the world about our great country. Through this campaign we will show that Lonely Planet was correct to declare Uganda as the world’s best country to visit in 2012” said the Minister.
“I am very proud to say that the very first video contribution has been submitted by the Prime Minister, Rt. Hon. Amama Mbabazi. In it he celebrates the “great, fascinating and captivating beauty” of his Uganda and remarks that the country is “poised to take off” in a way which will bring about a “new and prosperous nation,” he concluded.
