Aurora’s welcome mat will be out this week for high-ranking officials from the African nation of Uganda.
The officials, who will be in Chicago for the 31st annual Uganda North American Association Trade Expo, will visit Endiro Coffee, 29 W. New York St., a Uganda-based business. It is the first and only Ugandan-based restaurant brand in America.
Visiting will be Dr. Ruhakana Rugunda, Ugandan prime minister; Rebecca A. Kadaga, speaker of the Ugandan Parliament; and Ruth Nankabirwa, chief whip of the Parliament. Other Ugandan officials that are part of the group visiting the trade expo would be present too.
They are scheduled to have an official welcome at Aurora City Hall Thursday afternoon, followed by dinner at Endiro.
