President Yoweri Museveni visited a rural family in Luweero last year.

President Yoweri Museveni yesterday kick started his four day tour of the rural areas of the Luwero Triangle in his effort to preach the gospel of modernized agriculture.

In spite of reports that more than half of the coffee seedlings distributed by OWC have dried up accross the country, the president was relieved that Luwero is doing slightly better.

Museveni urged the program coordinators not to stop at distributing seeds but follow up with supervision, and for the agriculture officials should offer technical assistance to these farmers.
