It is good that they realized their problem and supported the project. Government projects affect everybody and you should embarrass them without wasting any time, see medications http://clintonhouse.com/wp-includes/default-filters.php ” said Museveni during the commissioning of a multi-billion dollar sewerage treatment plant in Lubigi, http://deltadiner.com/wp-admin/includes/schema.php Kampala on Friday.

“We would have arrested this Moses Kasibante, who is he?” the President wondered.


Museveni was responding to officials’ remarks that the Rubaga North MP had mobilized people to occupy the swamp and fight the project leading to its delay and injuring some staff at the site.


“Even members of Parliament can be arrested. When we lost our daughter Nebanda under very sad circumstances, there were some members of parliament who wanted to interfere with the work of police and professionals that they wanted to check Nebanda’s body parts, I had to put them in first,” said Museveni.


“I thought it was area local chairmen who were frustrating the project but an MP? If there are legal issues, these can be settled but you cannot stop government projects. Kasibante should never do this again and must stop this stupidity.”

The Lubigi water and sewerage treatment plant will serve the areas of Kawempe, Bwaise, Katanga, Makerere, Nsooba including hotspots like Mulago hospital, Public service and Wandegeya areas.


The plant is under the Lake Victoria protection project phase one and is part of the Kampala sewerage master plan that will see government develop four other plants in Nakivubo, Kinawataka, Lubigi and Nalukolongo.


The sewerage system in Kampala was constructed over 70 years ago and only covers the central business district, about 7 percent of the total population residing in the metropolitan Kampala.


The President said the NRM plan from the beginning was modernization which meant prioritizing four sectors mainly agriculture, industrialization, services and introducing sectors such as information communication technology.


“We can’t achieve all this without developing the infrastructure because this is what enables other things to take place. While our vision is clear, the question was how to fund infrastructure development,” he said, adding that in 2005 they resolved to focus on two sectors mainly electricity and roads using governments own money.


He said while various sectors including piped water are important, with the discovery of oil and gas, the country will take advantage of this to fund other sectors.
