President Museveni invited as a guest speaker at an interactive panel discussion titled “Peace building in Africa” on the sidelines of the ongoing World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.
The discussion was moderated by Mrs Bineta Diop, the Africa Union Chairperson’s Special envoy on Women, Peace and Security.
Besides the traditional political and ideological conflicts Africa has always faced, there is a new but healthier conflict posed by its growing population, which now stands at 1.3 billion people. The bigger concern is the youth segment which is not accommodated by the economies.
Museveni says that it is these socio-economic issues that we must address while avoiding the usual ideological conflicts. We must therefore address challenges of infrastructure development, electricity, skills etc in order to embrace a new revolution,’’he said
But even as we do this, we must be on the look-out to avoid being entrapped by those who preach identity (religion, colour, tribes) above interests (prosperity). Some opportunist groups mislead others into believing that identity eclipses interests,’’he said.
