Dual citizenship has been provided for in the Ugandan constitution since 2009 following the enactment of the Uganda Citizenship and Immigration Control (Amendments) Act 2009. However, to attain it, Ugandans living abroad had to go through a rigorous process that required them to return home. Not anymore.

Speaker of Parliament Rebecca Kadaga officially handed over the first dual citizenship certificate fully processed in the diaspora to Rosette Selwanga, a medical life support technician based in Boston, Massachusetts.

This was on the opening day of the 29th Annual Ugandan North American Association (UNAA) convention on Friday at the luxurious InterContinental Hotel in Miami, Florida.
