Indeed Uganda, the Pearl of Africa is Not Spain as the Spanish premier allegedly thought!
In his text message to the Finance minister, the Spanish Prime Minister provoked an outrageous online debate citing that “…Spain is not Uganda”.
As the Spanish Finance Minister contemplated on heading to bailout negotiations with Eurozone, Spain's Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy texted: "We're the number four power in Europe, Spain is not Uganda", as he was strengthening his counterpart amidst the economic meltdown of his country.
As many Ugandans reacted after the allegations of comparing the economic state of Spain to that of Uganda, The Pearl of Africa has plenty to provide, especially to all Spanish travellers to Uganda.
The beautiful country voted as the country with the happiest, hospitable people in the region of East Africa, the number one tourist destination for the year 2012 by lonely planet, and the 3rd best exhibitor ITB Berlin, 2012 does not only stop at that.
We present to you a destination that is pristine, natural; full of exhilarating tourist activities to venture. Having 50% of the world’s total population of mountain gorillas, over 1200 bird species, spacious national parks for adventurous travellers, spectacular cultural heritage; not forgetting the coolest and naturally moderated climate.
The Spanish PM’s comment that "Spain is not Uganda", triggered a number of tweets from Ugandans at #UgandaIsNotSpain.
Esto es bueno para empezar. La verdadera amistad con los españoles. Todos los españoles son bienvenidos a Uganda. Para experimentar el otro lado del mundo!
