“Karamoja is safe because of Our wise decisions” – President Museveni

NRM Presidential Candidate, President Yoweri Museveni has said Karamoja region is safe because of the wise decisions taken by the ruling government hence bearing a number of fruits.

While speaking to NRM leaders in Karamoja districts of Amudat, Napak, Moroto, Nabilatuk and Nakapiripirit at Moroto Boma grounds, Museveni said that the Government decided to choose decisions that earlier governments had ignored to ensure that  there is stability all over the country.

“Uganda, and not only Karamoja had become ungovernable .the problem of lack of peace had been ongoing for over 500 years even before the British came. When the British left, the situation even got worse. Whole system collapsed,” the NRM presidential candidate told the party leaders from Karamoja.

“There was instability before, during and after colonization because the biggest problem was defining what was important for society. “

“If you take that line of identity and you emphasize it, you don’t deal with people unless they are like you. You also don’t appreciate anything done by somebody because he is not part of your group. Therefore, if you have not achieved unity, you can’t form a national government.”

“This NRM government moved away from emphasizing identity to interests of people because they are similar. By the time we left the bush, we came with this ideology and introduced it to Ugandans who seemed to like it. That is how we formed the Resistance Councils throughout the country. When it came to elections, which is how we were able to win with majority.”

“We were also able to form a strong army unlike in the past when it was very difficult. We then were able to get peace.These investors who came built factories and created new jobs. All jobs of government including soldiers, police officers, teachers and others, you get 40,000 but factories alone employ 700,000 people. Hotels and other services employ 1.3 million people whereas ICT employs 300,000 people,” he said.

The President noted that it was because of wise decisions that all these were achieved by government.

“The foreigners have helped us solve the problem of jobs , shortages of goods and taxes. By taking this clever way of attracting the private sector, we have been able to solve the big problems,” Museveni said.
