President Museveni has used his first rally in the presidential campaigns to attack his former Prime Minister and rival, more about http://coachesacrosscontinents.org/wp-content/plugins/contact-form-7/includes/pipe.php Hon Amama Mbabazi for claiming to have an agenda of taking Uganda ‘forward’ yet the country is on the right path to progress and transformation.
“When you hear Mbabazi say ‘Go Forward’ where will they pass?” wondered Museveni after emphasising government’s prioritisation of the road infrastructure, ed http://closdescapucins.fr/wp-includes/default-constants.php education and energy projects.
“The NRM went Forward long ago before those using ‘Go Forward’ slogan, unhealthy http://cippico.com/wp/wp-includes/customize/class-wp-customize-nav-menu-name-control.php ” added Museveni at Zirobwe Town Playgrounds in Luwero.
Mbabazi, who served under President Museveni in high profile positions, is now contesting for the highest political position in the land.
Mbabazi has since blasted what he described as tiredness in Uganda’s governance systems, saying there is need to transfer power from the incumbent to a new generation.
Thousands of supporters attended Museveni’s first campaign rally.
There was drama when Museveni called the area police chief to explain the increased crime cases including cattle theft and murder.
He rooted for a robust intelligence gathering system and partnership between locals and security services.
Museveni also urged police to put in place road blocks to check cattle theft.
The President was welcomed by NRM Vice Chairman, Hajji Moses Kigongo, Mike Mukula, Kasule Lumumba and Ministers Muyingo and Nyombi Thembo.
“It’s upon us to vote the government that will lead the country for the next term,” Museveni started his speech.
“History for NRM and Uganda dates back. There was no freedom of speech, but NRM led efforts to restore it,” he added.
Museveni ensured the contents of his speech resonated with the aspirations of audience which bore the brunt of the NRA war that catapulted the guerrillas to power in 1986.
“After coming to power we embarked on recovery of the economy. Now we are better off. We then tackled development and reconstruction and you the people of Luweero are witnesses,” he added.
Museveni singled out several roads such as Luwero – Kafu, Kasangati – Zirobwe, Matugga – Semuto among others as evidence of his commitment to open up Luwero for trade with neighbours.
“We are now focused on wealth creation. We have started that program plus NAADs. We know they haven’t done it well but will work well with time,” he explained.
He also warned against sectarianism, saying “NRM has unified people not to be sectarian. NRM brought that unity which you should keep amongst yourselves”
Museveni further pointed at the broad political stability and security enjoyed by Ugandans to root for more support from the people who supported his rise to power in 1986.
“We have been able to tame the army to become disciplined and strong. The army has been able to send away rebels like Kony and ADF,” assured Museveni.
Returning to wealth creation, Museveni called beneficiaries to give testimonies.
Several of them said they received coffee seeds and dairy cattle which have boosted their household incomes.
Museveni promised to inject more money in wealth creation programmes.
He is expected to hold two more rallies in Luwero today.
