Huawei will announce a smart village project that aims to revolutionise rural Uganda’s healthcare sector. This initiative will implement a remote diagnosis system to synchronise village centres with national and regional hospitals, enhancing the delivery of healthcare services. Also, green residential smart PVs will be installed to ensure that stable and continuous power supplies are provided.

President Yoweri Museveni has asked the Huawei team to develop a detailed plan that will help in establishing the required digital cloud, which means that the leaders are not yet finalising the project. The smart village is an initiative set up to prove how the installation of smart technologies can change communities located in rural regions. By presenting advanced technology, clear information, and efficient instruments, the initiative plans to overcome the difficulties of villagers and contribute to development. According to Sooma Mukyala Fouziya, the public relations manager of Huawei Technologies Uganda, the project will help in implementing the Parish Development Model (PDM) by supporting digital transformation and sustainable growth in the country through the promotion of ICT.

The First Lady and Minister of Education and Sports, Mrs. Janet Museveni, has praised Huawei Technologies Uganda for its significant investments in advancing Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) within Uganda’s educational institutions.

Mrs Museveni highlighted Huawei, China’s leading ICT company, for its contributions to the digitalization of Uganda’s education system. She said thus ,“I must thank you yet again for what you have done so far and for really trying to work out a way that we can collaborate in the digitalization of our education system. This is good; it shows that everything we requested of you, you took seriously, and we can count on you to be good partners.”

The minister was meeting with the senior management team from Huawei Technologies Uganda at State House Nakasero.

“Our prayer is that, God willing, we can work with Huawei in 2024 and take us to a place of new beginnings. Thank you so much, and God bless you,” she added.

Huawei Smart PV has contributed to many flagship projects, such as the Abuja Steel PV plant by Paras Energy in Nigeria and the Red Sea project in KSA. The latter incorporates a grid with an installed power of 400 MW PV and 1300 MWh BESS, which should be fully renewable-based. The “One Network One Cloud” idea has also drawn interest from President Museveni, who has asked for further information on the project to proceed with the idea.

In the last two decades, Huawei has expanded its market and spread its wings into the Middle East and Africa (MEA). For instance, on June 28, 2024, the company unveiled its human capital development plans to train an extra 150,000 talent in the sub-Saharan region over the next three years. This new cloud partnership with Telecom Egypt is evidence of Huawei’s timely efforts to capture the new market trends.
