President Museveni has said that he is a firm believer of the need for mankind to establish dominion over the earth, and to do that, he said, “we must be prepared to constantly adopt appropriate changes while maintaining our peculiar cultural heritage”.
President Museveni made this remarks at Nshwerenkye Church of Uganda in Kiruhura for Easter prayers where the president and First Lady attended the Easter prayers.
Mr. Museveni thanked the people of Nkore and the greater cattle corridor for heeding to his teaching against nomadism. “And now it’s time to move this on to rotational grazing and de-stocking in some cases where the animals are much more than the available land”, he noted.
“For example a fresian cow which does not produce up to 40 litres of milk per day is a burden to its owner”, the president said.
He added that the issue of ticks is being handled by government and said that the government needs maximum compliance of farmers on the issue of ticks because ticks had built resistance to the drugs because of being misused.
“Family units are very close to this socio-economic struggle. This is why I speak of moving from physical division of property among children/family members to shareholding in a unified business entity where each one plays a role. This is the way of the future and the children must be taught and prepared for this”, he said.
“This extends to our daughters who in old times were disregarded from parent homes when they got married. I think marriage is good and our daughters must go and become part of their marital homes but remain with an irrevocable stake in the family of their parents”, he added.
Finally he welcomed Mrs. Fausta Bagaza, former first Lady of Burundi to Uganda and wished every Ugandan a happy Easter.
