President Yoweri Museveni has said that the National Resistance Movement is still powerful and capable party and urged its members to stay united to achieve their goals.
Museveni who is also the National Chairman of the NRM said the party is more important than individuals.
The President was yesterday speaking at a meeting held with NRM councilors and opinion leaders from Kanungu district led by Canon Josephine Kasya at State House Entebbe. The group also presented their memorandum to the President.
The President said NRM does not believe in sectarianism but instead seeks to help all Ugandans transform and become prosperous through economic production.
Museveni noted that when the NRM government was busy fighting Joseph Kony, ADF, disarming the Karamojong, Dr. Kizza Besigye was doing nothing but making noise for the President to leave. He said what Ugandans need is better infrastructure like roads and electricity, peace and security, improved education and health.
The President told the People of Kanungu that the government has already secured money for the construction of Rukungiri- Ishasha road and the construction work will begin between September and October. He told them that all the areas in Kanungu district will be connected to electricity.
The President also warned them against practicing land fragmentation and asked them to undertake commercial farming.
The Kanungu delegation thanked President Museveni for the good leadership and for supporting them.
