Prince Harry: “My wife said recently “My wife [Meghan] said recently that our generation and the ones before us haven’t done enough to right the wrongs of the past. I too am sorry – sorry that we haven’t got the world to a place you deserve it to be. Institutional racism has no place in our societies, yet it is still endemic. Unconscious bias must be acknowledged without blame  to create a better world for all of you.”

President Museveni delivers keynote address at the 71st UN General Assembly

Your Excellencies Heads of State and Government;

President of the General Assembly;

Mr. Secretary-General;

Honourable Ministers;

Distinguished participants;

Ladies and Gentlemen.
