Uganda Was Not Created By Britain – Museveni

viagra geneva; font-size: small;”>“The youth have been fed on false information about Uganda that it was created by the British. This is not true. This is a challenge to Professors and Universities. Uganda was not created by the British. It was there before and when it broke down, the linkages continued”, he said.

The President was today officiating at the 5th Annual Uganda Universities’ Union of Guild Parliaments that took place on Friday afternoon at the Uganda Manufacturers’ Association (UMA) Show Grounds Conference Hall, Lugogo in Kampala.

Uganda has 8 public universities and nearly 30 privately run ones.

This year’s event which was strategically scheduled to coincide with Uganda’s Golden Jubilee of Independence ran under the theme “From Disunity to Solidarity: Fostering National Unity and Harmony at Uganda’s 50th Independence Anniversary”.

President Museveni pointed out several challenges that Uganda has faced since her independence in 1962 that include, among others, ideological disorientation, under-development of human resource, small internal market, inefficient and illiterate colonial State and failure to recognize the role of the private sector, among other reasons why Uganda had lagged behind.

Mr. Museveni said the National Resistance Movement Government has done a lot to recover the national economy.

He, therefore, called for more efforts from the youth to engage in productive work so that Uganda continues to consolidate her forward transformation movement.

“Get rid of the confusion. Do not suffer the way we suffered,” the President cautioned the youth.

The President advised the youth to be disciplined, look after their health carefully and desist from being carried over by peer group pressure which, he noted, could mislead into grievous harm of their lives.

During the function, the President was awarded with the prestigious Makerere University’s Nkrumah Hall Award in appreciation of his relentless efforts to consolidate Uganda’s achievement in her national unity in the last 50 years.

Others who received the award included the Chief Justice, Benjamin Odoki, UPDF’s legislator General Elly Tumwine and the Inspector General of Police, Lieutenant General Kale Kayihura.
