East African Poverty Rises Relentlessly

The number of East Africans living below the poverty line has increased from 44 million to 53 million people, according to a new report. The growth of poverty is more concentrated in slum areas like the one in Uganda's capital Kampala.

Amb Richard Sezibera said: “ Even as leaders and institutions, in both the corporate and political arena, embrace good governance and paying close attention to the dictates of sustainable development, poverty continues to persist.”
