Prince Charles to Visit northern Uganda?

According to China’s People’s Daily, Britain’s Prince Charles is scheduling a November visit to the war-torn north of Uganda.

Kampala, the capital city of Uganda, is preparing to host the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting, a week-long summit including over 50 heads of state from the British commonwealth. The event will bring thousands of politicians, journalists, and tourists to Uganda in November, but residents of northern Uganda have felt neglected, a neglect that reaches back over 20 years to the beginning of a war that has been hidden for most of that time.

A visit from Prince Charles would bring a welcome international spotlight to the problems still plaguing the north.
