President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni launching the Kkubiri Furniture Makers Development initiative,workshop.
The furniture makers group has been supported by the President through his office, equipping their workshop with modern furniture making equipment.
The KKubiri Furniture Makers Development Initiative has a membership of over 1000 people organised in 50 groups.
This donation is going to ease their work, enable manufacture of high quality furniture and create more jobs.
President Museveni later addressed business operators around Kkubiri, Wandegeya. He informed the gathering that his decision to support such groups was in response to the ineffectiveness of local leaders
“The leaders you have been choosing have been largely ineffective in helping their people to take advantage of government programs, especially here in Kampala. For example this furniture making facility would ordinarily be done by your leaders using finances that government channels through local governments/authorities”-said President Museveni
He also assured the Kubiri Furniture Makers and other artisans across Kampala that “We are going to work together to rescue our country from dependence on foreign products”
