The Monitor Thought Leaders Forum that was scheduled to take place on Monday, October 21st has been postponed, the head of marketing, Nation Media Group, Elizabeth Namaganda has said.
The forum that was expected to take place at Kampala Serena Hotel has been pushed forward because the keynote speaker, Mr Mohammed Dewji is unwell and cannot be present at the function.
In a statement that was released on Sunday, the management of Nation Media Group states: “Due to an unexpected illness, Mr Mohammed Dewji, the President of MetL Group has been deemed unfit to travel, and will therefore be unable to join us tomorrow Monday, October 21st, 2019 for the Monitor Thought Leaders Forum.”
The statement also contains a message from Dewji in which he apologises for not being able to make it but promises to fulfil his commitment once he is “back to full health”.
The forum, the statement says, shall be held at a later date to be announced to the public.
