Must read

RJT_5191President Yoweri Museveni has said that the National Resistance Movement (NRM) government has successfully ensured peace and security around the country.

He said government has also accomplished the construction of several tarmac roads including the one from Malaba at the Kenyan border to Lamia at the Congo border and urged Ugandans to exploit the infrastructure for income generation and poverty eradication.

Museveni was yesterday speaking at the ceremony of commissioning the 104km Fort Portal – Bundibugyo – Lamia road, constructed at Shs226 billion, funded jointly by the Africa Development Bank (ADB) and the government of Uganda.

President Museveni also said the UPDF had defeated the Allied Democratic Forces (ADF) who later fled to the Democratic Republic Congo where they have caused mayhem.

Further, he said government had provided improved health services and ensured a successful immunization programme, adding that several schools had also been built in Ntoroko and Bundibugyo districts, enabling children to go to school.

“We have developed the infrastructure, improved health and education among other things. You, the wanainchi have three duties to fulfill; eradication of poverty from your homes, caring for your health and voting for NRM,” he said and urged Ugandans to engage in commercial agricultural production for improved incomes.

On empowering the youth, the President said that Government’s plan is to provide skills that create employment and wealth.

The Executive Director of Uganda National Roads Authority Allen Kagina appealed to local leaders and the community to protect road assets, saying newly installed road signs are being vandalized thereby endangering motorists.

Ntoroko Woman MP Jennifer Mujungu, saluted President Museveni for the building of Fort Portal – Bundibugyo road assured him of support as the sole presidential candidate for NRM in the 2016 General Elections.
