President Museveni and Williams Ruto at ceremony of Dei BioPharma Ltd, Matuga


President Museveni: Kenyan Deputy President Williams Ruto joined me for the groundbreaking ceremony of Dei BioPharma Ltd, a multibillion pharmaceutical drugs and mRNA vaccine manufacturing facility in Matugga, Wakiso.

The facility, a brainchild of Mathias Magoola and funded by Equity Bank Ltd will focus on applying biotechnology to solve the health challenges of humanity through the creation of novel drugs, vaccines, and diagnostics.

The economy of diseases, germs protozoa, etc, all our health problems are also economic opportunities being taken advantage of by others. Africans are totally absent. That is why we have a shortage of vaccines in the whole of Africa. This facility has come at the right time.

Africa is unrivaled in biodiversity. One of our scientists (Prof. Ogwang) produced something for Corona. There are so many things here. There is a lot of medicine in plants. It is very reassuring that the likes of Ogwang and Magoola are turning Africa's medical challenges around.
