Today President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni together with the First Lady Janet Kataaha Museveni celebrated Christ’s resurrection at St. Mathew’s Cathedral in Kyamate. The President took time off to reecho some of the messages he has shared with the Ugandan citizenry across the country, for instance, environment conservation, drip irrigation, corruption and so much more.
“Borrowing from the book of Genesis 1:26, we have an obligation to harness our likeness to God by being productive in both producing children and improving the physical resources.
Unfortunately, some people have decided to halt their productivity at giving birth to children only,” the President expressed his dismay.
He however said, government will do everything possible to deliver, nonetheless it requires a collective effort to achieve success of national programs. “By all means, the most important thing is for everyone to play their role and not leave it up to the next person,” the President emphasized.
Mr. Museveni urged the audience to conserve swamps that feed rivers and lakes, improvise for irrigation when faced with long dry spells and not let distributed seedlings dry up.
Furthermore to provide lunch, uniform and books for their children under UPE and USE programs, “We can’t afford to behave like pythons which give birth and leave their offspring to take care of themselves.”
The President concluded: “The other category of people we have started on are the government officials, frustrating government work through corruption. I am done talking about this and it’s time to act decisively.”
