The president of the republic of Uganda, HE Gen Yoweri Kaguta Museveni who has just concluded a country wide tour, asserting the importance of creating wealth and income at household level has penned down a letter to Ugandans especially to the Bazzukulu.
The president in his letter said that on this tour, his message was, again, to continue to assault the bottleneck of the archaic tradition of subsistence farming. He called it pre-colonial, pre- capitalist and traditional because at the time people did not need money; they were self-sufficient contrary to the times we are living in.
President Museveni further said that UPDF and NRM have ensured reconciliation and democratic empowerment of Ugandans.
The NRM has availed funds for Wealth and Job creation to counter subsistence farming. These are: the Operation Wealth Creation (OWC) Fund; the Women Fund; the Youth Fund; the Micro-finance fund and the Innovation Fund.
