Following the efforts of community groups to help a struggling people in the south of Uganda, the Goulburn Mulwaree Council has decided to formalise a friendship agreement.

 

The relationship with the Ba Twa people of Kisoro was initiated at last night's meeting of council through the introduction of a mayoral minute.

 

This followed an address by Mr Roger Ellem who has visited Kisoro and who was told that the Ba Twa would be extinct within two years.

 

Mayor Kirk last night told council that Mr Ellem wanted support from the Goulburn business community for the improvement of the Ba Twa peoples' lot.

 

Council last night supported a recommendation from Mayor Kirk to establish a friendship city relationship to act as a promotional strategy to raise money from the region's business and community.
