“There is no more need for you to worry because Uganda now has enough money to solve whatever problems we have. I am myself not worried anymore because we can now do whatever we want, here http://ckls.org/wp-content/plugins/wp-super-cache/plugins/domain-mapping.php ” the president said.

“By the time we came to power in 1986, dosage http://chmfire.ca/scripts/rvslib/pear/html/quickform/renderer/default.php we were collecting only Shs 5bn but now we collect Shs 13, 000bn which shows the money we get in form of taxes has greatly increased.”

The President was however quick to say that  despite having enough money to tackle all the problems that Uganda has, these cannot be solved at the same time but by applying the prioritisation system of first addressing the most pressing issues.

“This prioritisation system has been successfully applied in the defence and security sector, education, roads and electricity which we identified as being so crucial and worked upon them. We can now look at other areas after seeing that the crucial areas have been tackled.”

The president said most areas including West Nile now have tarmac roads, citing the road from Kampala to Olaba and the many schools and health centers that Maracha constituency enjoys courtesy of application of the prioritisation policy by the NRM government.

“The NRM government had a lot of debts from you but we have now paid all of them. You had a problem of electricity but we solved it. Your area has 9 health centre IIIs and a number of schools which is good and is a sign of development.”

Development Turned into Wealth

The President however said having development in the area should as well be reflected in the pockets of the locals, adding that something needs to be done about it.

“It makes me sick seeing a lot of development in the area but at the same time poverty troubling your homesteads. It is bad when you come for a rally like this but going back home and you find poverty still waiting for you.”

He added: “You need to drop the traditional agriculture because it can’t solve poverty and adopt modern agriculture.”

The president who later addressed other rallies in Terego East, Maracha County East and Koboko County North said through operation wealth creation, government would ensure improvement in the incomes of the people.
