President Museveni Reveals Uganda’s Problem During 79th Birthday Celebrations

President Museveni yesterday celebrated his 79th birthday. The ceremony was graced by many Ugandans at Kololo Independence Grounds. The President in his speech revealed Uganda’s major problem.

According to Museveni who has been in power since 1986, the obstacle hindering Uganda’s development is the transformation into a modern society.

Museveni first revealed that all the Bazzukulu who turned up to celebrate him were celebrating the success of the battles of September 1972 and 1985 (Katonga).

However, he said that all these battles could have been avoided. There were apparently more peaceful ways to solve them. The parties involved didn’t opt for dialog and instead took the path of sectarianism and violence.

According to Museveni, all these are now behind and can’t reoccur. Therefore, transforming Uganda is what is on the agenda. And to be able to do this, every Ugandan must join the money economy. This will enable them to study for their particular jobs and also avoid subsistence work.

“However, today’s challenge is to transform Uganda into a modern society. To achieve this, every Ugandan must join the money economy, and every young person should get the necessary education. There are two ways of creating a new society. One is by offering free education, and the second way is to stop working only for the stomach,” said Museveni.

Therefore in order to get a modern society, people should look beyond working for just the stomach but also the pocket.
