She was there to receive Hema Beverages, the manufacturers of Hema drinking water, who announced their one-year support to the club.

President Museveni has opened the Uganda National Students’ Association Council (UNSA) meeting and advised student leaders that as future national leaders, sales http://circleofliferediscovery.com/blog/wp-includes/simplepie/misc.php they needed to be ideologically clear and alert to appreciate what can guarantee the interest and prosperity of Uganda and her citizens in order to safeguard those interests at all costs.

The UNSA council is currently taking place at Teso College Aloet in Soroti Municipality.

The President told the national Students’ Council that it is important for leaders at all levels to be ideologically awake in order to make informed decisions.

He noted that wrong decisions that were generated by wrong ideologies by some post independence leaders cost many African countries, order http://curarlaimpotencia.com/wp-content/plugins/jetpack/modules/subscriptions.php Uganda inclusive, physician http://cccnt.com.au/wp-admin/includes/class-wp-filesystem-base.php a great fortune resulting in political instability and economic underdevelopment of the continent.

He observed that in the case of Uganda, the post independence leaders failed to know that national unity was very fundamental for the good of every Ugandan and instead divided Ugandans on the basis of either religion or tribe, completely polarizing the country.

“They formed Political Parties, UPC for Protestants, DP for Catholics, KY for Baganda and failed to know that every Ugandan citizen needed the other to be prosperous,” he said.

“We had to shun and abandon their political parties and oppose them when we were still students like you because we realized that they were taking our country in a wrong direction,” the President added.

Mr. Museveni told the students that under the National Resistance Movement, emphasis is put on nationalism and national unity bearing in mind that Ugandans need each other to prosper.

He said that the political group emphasizes pan-Africanism, works for the social-economic transformation of Ugandans and believes and promotes democratic governance.

The President noted that to cause the socio-economic transformation of Uganda, NRM is sensitizing citizens to abandon the traditional means of production and adopt modern ones that should be profit oriented.

“You cannot live a traditional way and employ traditional methods of work in the modern era because modern demands of life have also changed as society has evolved,” he said.

Mr. Museveni said that government is aware of the unemployment problem in the country but noted that the only source of employment is agriculture, the service sector, industries, business processing, out-sourcing and the Public Service.

He appealed to the youth to always support his efforts to have more factories built in the country adding that his efforts are always frustrated by politicians and corrupt civil servants.

“These politicians who frustrate my efforts to have more factories built in the country are your real enemies because they talk of opposing Museveni but Museveni will not work in these factories; it is you the youth,” he stressed.

He urged the youth to exercise the highest level of personal discipline referring to the adolescence stage as a “danger zone” that can damage their lives if not handled properly.

He also cautioned them against pre-marital sex, alcoholism and drug abuse, bad peer company and extravagance.
