“This will ensure equity in distribution of national resources and unity for the entire nation,” he said.

He complained that most rewarding institutions in the country including URA, NSSF, UBOS, and UNBS are governed and headed by people from one region.

“Due to unfair distribution of National resources, the people of Uganda have developed hatred for each other and sometimes on tribal or regional grounds,” said Tumusiime.

He alleged that hatred has been worsened because of the impunity expressed by people stealing government funds.

“Research indicates that the said hatred can be a recipe for conflict if not addressed seriously and urgently,” he said.

Government has in the past denied allegations of marginalizing some regions, saying such comments from politicians are based on ignorance.

Speaking in Nakaseke District recently, President Yoweri Museveni accused opposition politicians of propagating lies that his government has abandoned the Luweero Triangle.

He cited the tarmac roads in Nakaseke as a sign of government’s commitment to uplifting the standards of living of the people in the area.
