“They (opposition) tell you that I have not done this or that .Yes I know it but we do things in a systematic way. If they say we have not done anything, cheap how has Moroto, ailment Nimule and other remote areas been able to get electricity yet they have been here for many years?”Museveni questioned.

He added, “You should be able to answer these loose talkers who can’t do anything but just talk. They should know work is not talking like they do.”

Museveni said that the aspect of work started right from the times of the Bible when God cursed man to first sweat before getting what to eat noting that it is useless to talk without working.

“Most of them think they will just speak and things happen. They should know one has to first work.”
