I am in Hoima District to canvass for votes for Businge Harriet Mugyenyi Akiiki who is the NRM flag bearer for the District woman MP.
Today I addressed two rallies at Kabaale Public Primary school in Kabaale sub-county, Bugahya County and at Kigorobya Muslim Primary School in Kigorobya Sub-county in Hoima district.
The NRM government has restored peace and reinvigorating the economy, leading to minimum recovery. Now, most essential commodities are manufactured here, unlike before where we had to largely depend on imports.
Today I also tasted the fruits of the NRM efforts, I landed at Kabaale where a new airport is being constructed to international standards, with a 5km runway.
I travelled to Kigorobya on a largely tarmacked road about 70kms, some sections are still under construction, but it will soon all be tarmacked.
I therefore thank the people of Bunyoro and Ugandans in general who have supported the NRM, with this support, we have been able to archive a lot
Developments like the discovery of oil deposits in Bunyoro region have happened because of a peaceful environment and NRM government zeal for national development.
I have noted reports of land issues in the area and I am told it is exacerbated by people seeking refuge here from neighboring countries like DRC, the lesson here should be, despite the landmass of Congo, these people are not coming because of land pressure in congo because its almost double the size of Ug, but peace is what brings name. I, therefore, ask you to guard the peace we have jealously
On the issue of tobacco farmers that suffered the loss , after selling of produce to a Kenyan company – ‘Continental’ which run bankrupt, the government is going to compensate all the farmers for losses incurred
I thank the people of Bunyoro region for voting NRM in all the previous election cycles. I now ask you to vote Harriet Businge to represent Hoima district in parliament as a woman MP
