He further added that the NRM has made the country an integrated community. This is because unity has prevailed despite the numerous differences.
According to the Minister, Ugandans are now proud to be called Ugandans unlike in the past.
“NRM has made Uganda an integrated community. There is relative unity, and Ugandans continue to see themselves as Ugandans despite the issues that divide us. Ugandans are now proud to be associated with Uganda, which wasn’t the case in the past.
NRM has made Uganda move from a low level to a high level,” the Minister said while appearing on NBS TV’s Frontline program.
His comments however drove viewers and social media users into a very furious and ferocious debate.
Most of the respondents to Baryomunsi’s remarks clearly disagreed with him, especially on the status of the economy. The majority of these stated that it seems the MP leaves somewhere out of Uganda.
FDC joined in the debate too saying that Baryomunsi is one of the 14 million people who are mentally sick in Uganda. This is in a relation to a recent publication by New Vision in which the paper said that about 14 million Ugandans are mentally sick.

In regards to the NRM chairman, Mr. Museveni ‘Museveni-ing’ the party and imposing himself on the country, Baryomunsi denied this.
He said that the NRM has structures at all levels up to the village level. It’s a well-anchored party where everything doesn’t depend on Museveni.
According to Baryomunsi, Museveni has never imposed himself on Ugandans, it’s rather their will that he’s the president.
