Dear President Kim,

We send you greetings from Uganda. We also avail ourselves the opportunity to thank you and the World Bank for the Bank’s historic and continued role in Uganda’s path to development over the years. Up until now, we believe that the engagement between the World Bank and our government provides critically needed financial and human resources needed to assist our country in the journey towards development and socioeconomic transformation.  Open letter to the World Bank president from Ugandan CSOs
