Uganda Is Still Standing And Coping With The Virus – Museveni

During the nation address this afternoon, President Museveni said that it is the partial implementation of our programmes that is helping Ugandans to survive in the virus. When the coronavirus started causing havoc around the world, he started hearing screams of pessimism,”

“We’ve actually continued to be in the bush even when we are in the Gov’t and have continued to wage guerrilla warfare against the neo-colonial and colonial interests in Uganda. Much more could have been achieved, if it was not for this opposition,’said Museveni.

“Uganda is still standing and coping with the virus , the floods, the landslides, the rising water of our lakes, the locusts, the security and feeding millions of Ugandans”

“It is the partial implementation of our programme, that is helping us to survive in this crisis of the virus and to even use the virus to take off in terms of the social-economic transformation, we have been talking about since the 1960s”

“As usual, many of the people did not bother to grasp the importance of these points or, indeed, of the other 7 points. They thought that we were just talking to justify our role in national issues”

“Uganda is coping with floods, landslides, locusts, floating islands, rising water levels and feeding millions of our people because of some of the few ideas that we have implemented in spite of the endless opposition.

“By March 2020 we had only two industries making sanitizers we now have 107 factories by March there was no factory making masks and we had been told there was a global shortage but we now have about 10 factories making masks”

“Financial Intelligence Authority froze the account of some companies because they didn’t know where the companies’ money was coming from, and yet they were from Equity bank. How could they not find out that”

“We have built a strong Army; we have built a powerful LC system, the fact that it is not well facilitated financially notwithstanding; we have surplus electricity on account of the correct prioritization”

“With Parliament support, in 2006; we’ve a good road network of tarmac, totaling 5,111kms,’he added.

[dropcap]P[/dropcap]resident Yoweri Museveni is reportedly disturbed by the high number of cases of land grabbing involving officials from the State House and the Office of the President. This was revealed on Friday by Ms Phiona Barungi, the State House Special Assistant on General Duties while meeting land-grabbing victims in Luwero district. Barungi said the president had been lately overwhelmed by complaints about State House officials tormenting scores of people, especially in central Uganda. “There’s just too many complaints about State House employees,” she said. “We have become a big problem, even the president himself, who gave us these jobs is concerned… He does not know what to do.” “He sent us to serve the people but we are now serving our stomachs. It has gotten to a point where almost every state house official is involved in a land wrangle somewhere.” In a meeting held in Zirobwe village in Bukyimu sub-county in Bamunakika, Barungi said her office was being bombarded daily by helpless people. Some of these are facing death threats from powerful people. “Yesterday I had just landed from Turkey, I even was feeling sick. I found a man at the airport waiting for me,” Barungi told the meeting. “He told me that a man connected to Gen Muhoozi Kairerugaba was hunting him to kill him and take his land. When I asked around, it turned out that this man has no connection to Gen Muhoozi. He is just a serial land grabber.” In the meeting, the residents singled out a number of people who have been harassing them. These also went ahead destroying their crop gardens, and metting out all manner of violence to force them out of their land. The Minister of Lands Hon Sam Mayanja during the meeting ordered an immediate arrest of two of these land grabbers. They include Mary Babirye and Rasmus Kagaba.
