“Cabinet is in its final stages of drafting a law which will force all citizens in the country to be part and parcel of patriotism,” he revealed.

Tumwebaze told the committee chaired by Col Fred Mwesigye, that the bill is still before Cabinet and very soon, it will be tabled on the floor of Parliament for debate.

“If this bill is enacted into law, it will be mandatory for everyone to embrace development programmes which are introduced by government.”

“Failure to do so,” he continued, “will lead to imprisonment or a fine.”

“This Country does not belong to the current president, ministers or MPs. This law will define their responsibilities and also ensure that they do things that show that they love their country.”

In the same meeting, the Minister further noted that in government’s effort to promote its programmes, all the newly appointed RDCs will be taken to Kyankwanzi for training.

“Most of the appointed RDCs are youth who have just completed their education and need refresher courses to enable them perform their duties efficiently,” the Minister emphasised.

He thus cited a need by the government through the ministry of Finance to increase the funds allocated to patriotism clubs in schools.
