President Yoweri Museveni has accused NRM leaders of failure to publicise government achievements since 1986.
Speaking to NRM leaders from the Greater Mpigi districts of Butambala, Gomba and Mpigi at the police playgrounds in Mpigi town council yesterday afternoon, Museveni said Uganda would not have had any opposition figure had the government’s achievements been well-publicized.
Speaking about the emerging force of youths in the country’s politics, the NRM presidential candidate said this group of people has a reason to agitate for better services because they have been ignored by leaders.
According to Museveni, whereas his job is to show the strategic and ideological difference between the NRM and other parties in the development of Uganda, his cause has not been supported by fellow NRM leaders.
Museveni who on several occasions laced his speech with jokes and sayings from the local Luganda dialect said that one of the biggest problems that Uganda is currently facing is poverty noting that it can only be tackled if all homesteads get involved in wealth creation.
According to Museveni, right now 1400 homes of the 1700 near his farm in Kisozi are now involved into commercial production
He said this approach should be used by leaders to encourage people to adopt wealth creation, other than being involved in subsistence production.
