Muwanga continued to say that NAADS ought to be given more time to studying its progress because the seven years are not enough to determine and make conclusions about the performance.

Rose Ayikoru Alitema, the NAADS representative for Northern region, said the president should be considerate on the input issue before thinking of making any reforms without involving the farmers.

She also added that Museveni should not forget that NAADS has employed over 5,000 people in the country and so scrapping off their jobs will create a big gap of unemployment in the country.

Museveni has for the last few months been warning NAADS to roll up its sleeves or face his wrath.

In his State of the Nation address at Kampala Serena Hotel on Thursday, Museveni said NAADS even failed to assist peasants convert from subsistence farming to commercial farming.

“The peasants that have woken up to this need have had problem of planting material and breeding material. NAADS that has been given huge resources to do this, spends most of the Shs. 203 billion we give them each year on salaries and seminars,” Museveni charged.
