This morning, NRM Presidential candidate, Yoweri K Museveni concluded his campaign in Bugisu sub-region with a meeting of NRM leaders from Bulambuli and Sironko districts.
Museveni tasked the NRM leaders to mobilize the people, especially the youth, to take advantage of employment opportunities emerging from various developments like the Mbale Industrial Park.
This industrial park when fully operational is expected to create over 15,000 jobs.
Museveni said it is important that the people of Uganda appreciate all this because of the peace and stability guaranteed by the NRM government.
“At one time, Uganda had the fourth highest number of refugees across the world. Today, we are the second highest refugee-hosting country in the world,” he said.
In his conclusion, he appreciated the people of Bugisu for the warm reception and also urged them to observe SoPs in relation to Covid-19.
