WORLD LEADERS-127fc41b

President Museveni has defended the government decision to build roads in neighboring Democratic republic of Congo.

This follows a recent heated debate over the matter with several legislators criticizing the government for prioritizing roads in Congo over Uganda’s poor roads.

Presiding over the scientific 58thindependence celebrations held at state house Entebbe this afternoon, Museveni said the move is to facilitate trade between the two countries wondering how legislators would oppose such.

He revealed that Uganda gets 500M dollars a year from Congo through trade hence the need to improve infrastructure to facilitate more trade.
