“The problem we all have is poverty. We should forget about politics and focus on development. If any politician tells you to just eat the Emyooga money, you should consider him or her your worst enemy,” Kasolo said.
The minister said the aim of Emyooga program is to help people out of poverty. According to him, this new five-year term of the NRM government is to ensure all Ugandans get out of poverty.
He advised his fellow leaders to work towards the development of the people.
“I come from Greater Masaka and ever since President Kaguta Museveni handed Emyooga to me I have put all my efforts here. As leaders we must work for people. People are more interested in development not politics,” he said.
He however urged people to always pay back the money they get from the Emyooga saccos. He says the money belongs to the Saccos and not to the government as people think.
Therefore, it is important for to bring back this money so that other people can benefit from it as well.
“This money was given to Saccos but it’s painful for members not to repay. The money is for Saccos not government. Whoever borrows should return the money to the Saccos such that it’s loaned out to other people. I need to get the name of those defaulters and you will see what will happen to them.”
