Museveni’s participation was confirmed by ZITF Company board chairperson Ruth Ncube in a telephone interview with the Chronicle. Said Ncube:
I confirm that the President of Uganda, His Excellency Yoweri Museveni, will officially open this year’s ZITF on Friday, 26 April.
Ncube added that Germany and Belarus have confirmed their participation in this year’s trade fair, a move that will increase the number of foreign nations to 14.
Besides the two European countries, the other countries that have confirmed their participation are Botswana, Ethiopia, Japan, Kenya, Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, Nigeria, South Africa, United Arab Emirates, United States of America and Zambia.
