Ugandan actors, Douglas Dubois Sebamala aka Simon and Shebbe Khan, also known as Tony, famous in the Ugandan TV series Second Chance, are expected in Rwanda for a five-day study tour that will mainly focus on the creative sector.

The duo is expected to arrive in the country on August 25.

 

Shebbe said the aim of the study tour is to learn about the country’s music and film industry, saying that Rwanda has become an exemplary country and arguably one of the fastest developing countries in Africa.

 

While in the country, the actors will engage with film directors and actors in Kigali, to broaden their understanding on how the film business works in Rwanda, as well as discuss how to boost the East African market and create possible partnerships.

 

They will also visit Kigali Genocide Memorial (KGM) Centre in Gisozi, to learn from the country’s tragic history.
