They also raised the issue of the heroic send-off of veterans and also requested the Minister to top up the package given to veterans.

In response, the Minister said: ”But why are you interested in money, why don’t we change to Agriculture, because money can be consumed in a single day but a cow can multiply and give you wealth and that’s even how you can eradicate some of the mafias you said eat your Kasiimo.”

In conclusion, the Minister pledged to refurbish the roof of Kapeeka sub-county as was requested by Nakaseke District Finance Secretary, Gorret Mukagatare .
