He said Kanungu district alone, has vast mineral resources and that a proposal has been made to construct a railway line to the region for easy transportation of the mineral resources to the markets.
The Premier made the remarks on Friday, at the burial ceremony of the late Benard Birahire in Nyakinoni sub-county in Kanungu District.
Mbabazi told hundreds of mourners at the late Birahire’s burial ceremony, to shun laziness and gossip and instead respect and learn each other’s developmental views and focus on hard work.
“God gave us everything including fertile soils, beautiful country, good weather and minerals but the problem is people’s failure to work,” Mbabazi said.
Mbabazi, who was accompanied by his wife Canon Jacqueline Mbabazi, challenged the people of Kanungu and the country at large to emulate the example of the late Birahire who distinguished himself as a perfectionist and meticulous worker.
He also thanked the church for promoting unity and demystifying death which he said leaves a psychological scar in our lives.
Rev. Canon. Kenneth Kanyankore in his message encouraged the congregation to acknowledge God as the good shepherd who is in charge of our lives in all circumstances.
The late Birahire passed away at the age of 87, after a long battle with an eye tumor.
