President Museveni spoke to the people of Katakwi at Obulengero Primary School grounds, Okulonyo Sub-county, Usuk County.
This sub-county gave the NRM the highest number of votes in Teso sub-region in the 2016 elections and that’s the reason why he came to thank its residents.
This area was a frontline when Karimojong raiders came to rustle cattle. The NRM government managed to stop that criminality and the raids are no more. Teso is fully pacified and at peace.
This peace has enabled the government undertake development projects like building roads, extending electricity, among others. But development is not enough if individuals do not improve their own incomes and livelihoods,’he said.
I want you to abandon subsistence farming and embrace commercial agriculture, which is profitable and will give you higher incomes. Use the developments like roads, water, electricity to improve your incomes,’Museveni said.
On Friday I held a lengthy discussion with your leaders in Soroti. I have tasked them to come to you and explain how we should create wealth. Listen to them and together let’s implement what you agree on. The government will support you,’he added.
