Uganda’s President, Yoweri Museveni has encouraged all the country’s citizens to wngage in activities that bring an extra income.
Museveni made the call on Sunday while addressing residents of Usuk county in Katakwi district.
Below is his statement
Was in Usuk County of Katakwi District where I presided over two functions. I thank the people of Katakwi for the warm reception.
First, I joined families of the 38 people who were killed by Karimojong cattle rustlers in Ngariam at the height of that vice in the early 2000s.
These were innocent people that died while their elected leaders at the time were busy opposing the NRM’s efforts to disarm the aggressors.
At a separate function, I attended mass in remembrance of George William Apel, a hero of our time who went over and beyond in his call of duty, paying with his life in the end.
This is an example that should be emulated. I am glad that his daughter, Hon Jessica Alupo, has kept her father’s legacy alive.
The bottom line though is that we have triumphed in the ultimate cause. We have kicked out insecurity in Uganda, and those that opposed us are alive to bear witness.
Our concern now is how to improve household income, and not waste time on diversionary issues. I encourage everyone to be involved in an activity that brings an extra income to the household.
