Today Saturday April 14th, 2017 President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni and First Lady Janet Kataaha Museveni joined the family of Canon Jackson Bwisho at his home in Kashari, Mbarara to commemorate his 80th birthday.

At the same gathering Mr. Museveni commended farmers in western Uganda for being steadfast at beating the banana wilt problem that threatened the region recently.

“This is because you took heed to government’s advice at the time of crisis. Now I see restored plantations,” President Museveni enthused.

His Excellency urged farmers to emulate the same mentality to curb the ongoing dry climatic patterns, through adoption of drip irrigation.

He concluded: “I congratulate the Canon for his leadership in this area and wish him more life and health.”
