Uganda House


The Chancery house that the Government started building in South Sudan in 2019, is set to be completed in October this year. 

The storied building being erected in Juba will house the consular office and provide accommodation for the staff employed at the mission. 

Speaking to journalists on Wednesday, Justus Kasigazi, the head of the Chancery, said by constructing its own house, the government will save the money that it was spending on monthly rent. 

“Accommodation in Juba is very expensive. We have been spending a lot on rent but now this is going to stop and that money can be used somewhere else,” he said without revealing monetary figures. 

He said the building would also make access to consular services accessible to Ugandans working and living in South Sudan. 

Katureebe Tayebwa, the head of regional economic cooperation at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, said the embassy is one of the five mission buildings in the region.

The others are in Kigali, Bujumbura, Dodoma and Nairobi. 

The one in Kinshasha, in DR Congo is at the same level of construction as the one in Juba. 

“The Ministry of Foreign Affairs is ensuring that all missions are properly housed especially in countries where we enjoy a friendly relationship. This helps the government to plan and play its rightful role in these countries,” he said.
