The president appreciated the people of Kyenjojo District for supporting the NRM during the war and later through the various election cycles.
This particular county, Mwenge South, gave me the highest number of votes in the last election, explaining why I chose to hold my first rally on these regional tours here,’he explained.
Like I did with your leaders yesterday, this engagement is to sensitize you on wealth creation and fighting household poverty,’he said.
The government is doing a lot in terms of development. For instance here, we have built the road from Kigumba, Kagadi, Hoima to Kyenjojo District and via Kahungye.
However along these tamacked roads, there are poor people, implying that the existence of tarmack roads does not necessarily translate into wealth.
What I want you to do is to engage in agriculture that is commercially viable. However as you do this, I implore you to desist from land fragmentation, because small land holdings are not commercially viable,’said Museveni.
Government is going to support you through the various funds that have been set up, like the OWC, youth fund, women fund, etc. Thank you for coming in big numbers to listen to me,’he added.
