The president however said that this will only be possible with prioritization where the most important projects are handled before others, adding that with this method there is nothing government cannot do.

Sectarianism

Museveni at the rally spoke against people “preaching gospel of sectarianism” based tribes and religions, dubbing these people Satanic.

“We should not look at ourselves basing on religion or tribes but as a country and region; this will help us prosper,”

On the issue of poverty that the people in Busoga and other parts of the country are languishing in, Museveni said   that through prioritization government will now put focus on increasing funding for NAADs, youth, women and microfinance as a way of increasing people wealth.

Museveni said it is useless to boast of having development through roads and electricity when the people have nothing in their pockets, stressing that his main focus is seeing people get well off.

“When we talk of development, it is for us all but individually many of you are doing badly. It’s now upon government to see that when you return home you have some money in your pockets.”
