Go Forward Presidential Candidate Amama Mbabazi has promised a monthly pay to the elderly men and women of Uganda, ampoule http://chopcult.com/insert/classifieds/141870/uploads_classified/142000/141870/images/secure.php saying the initiative would reduce on the suffering faced by old and poor people across the country.

“You will be catered for, ” he added while addressing a rally in Adjumani on Monday.
“Under my government, any man or woman who is 65 years or older; even if they never worked in government, the government will give you a grant every month,” he added as the female-dominated crowd cheered him on.
Since 2010, the Government of Uganda, through the Ministry of Gender, Labour and Social Development that is implementing the Expanding Social Protection Programme has piloted two grants- the Senior Citizens Grant and the Vulnerable Family Grant.
The objective of the two grants was to experiment so as to help the Government to assess the best form of a cash transfer to start building a social protection system for the country.
Research shows 66 percent of Ugandan households have an older person who needs support.
Mbabazi’s promise is a big relief to the elderly. He did not reveal how much his government would inject in this social welfare programme if he wins the February 18 elections.
On his Northern Uganda trail, Mbabazi maintains infrastructure development is high on his agenda.
He said infrastructure development should be equitable and inclusive.
