Jenifer Musisi To Officiate at Woodball Awards

President Yoweri Museveni has said he is not just campaigning for the February 2016 general elections but rather enjoying the fruits of his government while he tours different parts of the country.

Museveni made the remarks on Thursday while addressing journalists at the Morulinga state lodge in Napak district, page noting that he is happy with what he has seen during the tour.

“The Bible says whatever man sows is what they reap. The NRM has sown vision for Uganda and now is harvesting after launching a minimum recovery program in 1986 when we decided to put the economy in the hands of the people, cost ” Museveni said.

He added that the economy has now grown from the Shs5bn collected as tax in 1986 to 13, 000 billion this year which he noted is a tremendous achievement worth celebrating .

2002, 2006 the Years to Remember

President Museveni said that 2002 is the year that turned around everything for Uganda following an extraordinary cabinet meeting that sat in Gulu where they adopted the system of prioritization that has contributed to growth and development of the country.

“In 2002 I put my foot down in the cabinet meeting in Gulu as I demanded that we must put much emphasis on defense. Later we were able to cut on other budgets and increase on the budget for defense. Subsequently, by 2003 we had defeated Kony; this was because of the meeting in Gulu,” the president noted.

He added, “We later defeated the cattle rustlers and Allied Democratic Forces rebels. In Uganda many people want to be everywhere but end up being nowhere. We decided to adopt prioritization that has led to development.”

The President further noted that 2006 was another year of transformation following a cabinet meeting that sat at the Statistics Building where government decided to take a painful but later successful idea as far as developing the country was concerned.

“I told the meeting that the one mistake we had made was depending on money from donors to be able to finance development which was not working out. The donors could not know what it takes to develop Uganda.”

“I told the meeting that we had to tighten our belts, spend less on consumption and more on development .We had to put more money in roads, electricity and health.”

The president said he now has reason to celebrate for what the country has achieved since the interventions in 2002 and 2006 adding that these years were the turning point for Uganda’s development process.

“Northern Uganda, Lango, Karamoja and all other areas of the country have total peace. I am campaigning but at the same time enjoying myself. I am celebrating peace, electricity, roads and the many other achievements. Only four places in the country (Kotido,Kaabong,Nwoya and Buvuma) have no electricity.”

“I am happy God can use human beings like me to do good work for the world,” Museveni bragged.

He however said the focus now is on increasing household incomes as one of the ways of improving people’s wealth.
