President Kaguta Museveni has met over 200 KCCA division councillors and city authority leaders who completed a one week leadership training at the National leadership institute (NALI) in Kyankwanzi despite the threats.
“Those who think leadership is like flu that is caught will make you fall into trouble…it is good that you defied the resolution and broke yourselves away from those people who did not want to help you,” Museveni told the councillors.
Museveni urged the councillors to encourage the youth to find ways of fitting into the four sectors of agriculture, industries, services and ICT in order to create wealth and employment for themselves.
“Leaders are like doctors, if you find a sick person, you advise them. Encourage youth to find employment in these sectors because minus that, you will have betrayed your people. If a youth is wearing a red band, which sector is that?” the president wondered.
The red ribbons have become synonymous with defiance and opposition against the amendment of article 102b of the constitution to remove age limit and make Museveni a life president.
But the president appealed to KCC councillors to be alert and use political pressure to advocate for more fund allocation into the youth and women funds, instead of pursuing useless ventures.
He said a lot of money was being wasted into irrelevant expensive trips abroad by their leaders.
“You opposition might find that you have unemployed youths in your areas but your leaders never talk about these funds, you never hear anybody talking about this.
