In Kireka, information pills a Kampala suburb, Mbabazi emphasised the urgency of implementing what he calls the Advanced Sub-county Model, arguing it will “increase productivity at the village level.”

He said the model will as well boost trade amongst the people of Kampala and the entire country.

The people of Wakiso are struggling with high costs of housing.

Mbabazi said if elected president, he will address the issue by putting in place measures of constructing affordable housing units for city dwellers.

“My government will look into the possibility of low cost housing and improved healthcare for the area,” said Mbabazi while addressing a brief rally in Kasokoso.

On the economy, Mbabazi said Ugandans need a kind of trade that “uplifts economic activity of most areas of the country. This [trade] in turn would expand the cash economy in Kampala.”

To improve the standards of living of the people of Kampala, Mbabazi said government must improve the quality of road infrastructure.

“This time must be reduced by introduction of electric trains. This would in turn have positive impact on the economy of which the people of Kireka are actively participating,” said the former NRM Secretary General who recently said he derives his inspiration from Ethiopia.

Ethiopia recently unveiled the $475-million, Chinese-built and funded light rail which authorities said would help maintain annual economic growth of more than 10 percent.
