KAPCHORWA: The NRM Presidential candidate Yoweri Kaguta Museveni who was on his campaign trail in Sebei sub-region, districts of Bukwo, Kween met NRM leaders at Tuben Technical institute Boma ground in Kapchorwa where he called on leaders to prioritize wealth creation programmes which encourage Ugandans to work for both the stomach and their pockets.
“Because of the correct management of Uganda by NRM there is nothing important we can not do. What we need now is proper distribution of resources by the members of parliament who you are going to elect,” he said.
He called on the NRM leaders to embrace the line of pan Africanism starting with East Africa for the prosperity of the people of Uganda and the region in terms of trade and development.
“We as a student group started in 1965 to analyze the situation of the tribal chiefs and the post colonial governments. Identity; a long tribal and religious line was what they were concentrating on. But for us we said no, all people have similar needs and interests. That is why we gained the upper hand and introduced this ideas to the people who liked them,” he added.
The NRM flag bearer for the office of president put emphasis on uniting the people of Uganda to improve security, health, education and the development of the country which he says that it enabled NRM to build a strong army followed by peace that attracted many investors who have helped the country to build its economy.
President Museveni, using the saying of ‘wisdom is better than strength’, said the working methods of NRM of opening the factories by the investors helped to solve the problem of shortages of essential commodities, created employment for Ugandans as well as paying taxes that are used for the infrastructure development among other programs.
Currently, the rehabilitation process of Kapchorwa – Suam road is ongoing and an electricity project is being implemented under the Rural Electrification Agency (REA).
Government is also in the process of establishing a large-scale grain milling facility to promote value addition and job creation in Sebei-sub region.
