“I was here about two months ago but returned to remind you of a few things. The NRM has promoted unity among Ugandans and because of this we have got strength, which has given us peace and enabled development,” he added.

“We have worked on roads, electricity, hospitals, education among others. Now we are going to embark on wealth creation.”

On fighting poverty, Museveni said NRM plans to prioritize 5 key wealth-creation funds crafted to help citizens.

 

The Agriculture Fund or NAADS will be increased from Shs203 billion to Shs1,000 billion. The Youth Fund will be boosted from Shs 54 billion to Shs234 billion.

The Microfinance Fund will be upped from Shs 44 billion to Shs 180 billion, the Innovation Fund will be boosted from Shs170 billion to Shs 500 billion and the Women Fund will get Shs 234 billion. The NRM candidate said benefiting from these funds will not require security. On ex-service men, said Museveni, “we are going to pay their pension and also compensate those affected by previous wars.”

At recent rallies Dr Kizza Besigye and Amama Mbabazi promised to compensate victims of the LRA war. Museveni further promised to construct the Koboko- Moyo, and the Arua-Terego-Moyo roads.

“With prioritization we shall achieve all this. What is important is for Uganda to have a peaceful environment for all this to happen,” he added. On education and health services, Museveni said he expected the district chairpersons and district education officers to supervise these facilities because the government has injected a lot of funds in these sectors.

“For example why should private schools perform better than government schools yet teachers in the latter are paid better? It is a question of supervision and I am instructing DEOs to supervise government schools to ensure quality service,” he added. Museveni will today hold rallies in Jinja.

First Lady Janet Kataha Museveni has expressed support for independent candidate Vincent Kyamadidi, pill http://chipinhead.com/wp-content/plugins/jetpack/modules/carousel.php who is the incumbent contestant for Rwampara County MP in Mbarara District.

This is according to MP Kyamadidi himself, http://crosscon.ca/wp-includes/class-wp-site-query.php who told his supporters on Sunday that Mrs Museveni told him the NRM Party would not risk discarding such a powerful and important asset.

Kyamadidi revealed that the First Lady and outgoing Ruhaama Member of Parliament, made the promise to him in a meeting at her home in Rwakitura.

The meeting was also attended according to Kyamadidi, by his challenger Charles Ngabirano with whom they have not been at the best of terms since the start of the campaigns.

The incumbent MP lost to Mr Ngabirano in the NRM Primaries in October last year, a race he says was greatly soiled by vote rigging and violence.

After failed attempts to legally overturn the election results, he decided to run on an independent ticket.

The two rival camps reportedly carried to Rwakitura their 30 strong campaign teams each, on the invite of Mrs Museveni.

Kyamadidi says after the meeting, he was handed boxes of NRM and President Yoweri Museveni’s T-shorts which he distributed yesterday afternoon at his rally at Rugando playground in Rwampara.

Despite being an independent, Kyamadidi says NRM is predominant in Rwampara and that he has no other choice but to support it.

“Besides, everyone knows that I won in the primaries with an 800 vote margin, but Dr Tanga Odoi decided to announce Ngabirano. The main elections are now at hand; Mr Ngabirano will be the MP for Tanga Odoi and I will be the MP for Rwampara,” he said at the rally.

During the Saturday meeting in Rwakitura, Kyamadidi said the First Lady urged the two rival camps to put their differences behind and act like members of one family.

Unlike other NRM leaders including the Prime Minister Dr Ruhakana Rugunda who have openly declared war against the independents, Kyamadidi said the First Lady was vividly supportive of his candidature.

“I cannot lie to you people but our First Lady is different; she still considers me part of the team and she has said that to me,” he stressed at the rally.

Kyamadidi says he was also reassured that President Museveni would hand him a ministerial job if he overwhelming won the Rwampara seat.

According to the MP, the First Lady also “promised maximum security” in Rwampara during next Thursday’s elections to ensure that there is no vote rigging or violence.

At the rally, Mrs. Shifra Kyamadidi described her husband’s contender Charles Ngabirano as the new Idi Amin of Rwampara.

She urged people to vote a hardworking leader come February 18th to consolidate his enormous achievements in the area.

Residents at the rally asked Kyamadidi to work on their water supply, electricity and schools in areas of Kitwe and Nyamatete if he retains his parliamentary seat.
