clinic geneva;”>During his visit to Busoga Prince William Nadiope Gabula IV at his Budhumbula palace in Kamuli district this week, the president lauded the prince for taking the lead in Agriculture encouraging him to ensure that all his subjects follow the same trend.


“I am happy to be here and to see my son back home, returning to his grandfathers’ and fathers’ home to continue where they left from and has even started agriculture. If a Prince can be involved in agriculture, he is a true Prince. It is important to sensitize your subjects to engage in modern agro production to fight poverty, leading by example,” Museveni noted.


Prince Gabula is engaged in massive commercial production of maize in the region.


The President was also taken on a guided tour of the Mausoleum of the late Nadiope Yosia, the Princes’ grandfather and his wife Nansikombi Nadiope, and Sir Wilberforce Nadiope where he laid his wreath and paid respects.


He later toured the palace of the young prince Gabula currently under construction and funded by the government of Uganda before addressing the rally.


President Museveni who thereafter left for other government engagements delegated the Speaker of Parliament Rebecca Kadaga to represent him who later also launched the Busoga Education Performance Programme aimed at monitoring education performance in the region.


The President was on a whirlwind tour of projects in Kamuli district and initially commissioned a Shs500M Presidents’ office building that will house the RDC, ISO, DISOs and other central government officials in Kamuli District.


During his tour, President Museveni highlighted the importance of enterprise selection in modern agro production to boost food production and wealth creation.


He said the region is particularly endowed in the production of fruits that can be exploited alongside other enterprises such as poultry piggery, fish farming and diary production for commercial purposes.
