“You the youth leaders should be clear because if you are not, you are going to kill your own people. Stop being polite to people who are not working. Stop wasting your time and engage in production to be able to live purposeful lives.”
He said this yesterday while commemorating the international youth day at Kololo Independence grounds. It is at this place, that he talked about his working days as a youth.
He encouraged them to get involved in commercial agriculture because not everyone will get government jobs. He told youth leaders to tell the young people that wealth comes from jobs.
“The youth will help themselves if everybody understands that they must engage in production. Don’t spend so much time crying for this and that. Youth leaders should be clear and not polite or else you are going to kill your people. In your advocacy, be clear that the wealth and jobs are mainly the sources of wealth creation.”
Uganda has one of the youngest populations in the world. 78% of the population is under the age of 30. This means the government has to be very strategic when it comes to planning for the country.
The youths need special attention and specification. Otherwise, in a few years from now, the country will have a number of issues to handle yet it can be worked upon now.
