President Kaguta Museveni has today harvested what he planted last year during his water-bottle irrigation demonstration farm in Kawumu, Luweero.
“It is an achievement to be poor in Uganda,” he believes.
“All families show embark on commercial rather subsistence farming as a way of social economic transformation,” he added.
In the same locality, Mr. Museveni was last year pictured pushing a bicycle loaded with a 20 liter jerrycan of water in a bid to promote irrigation. He was snapped pushing his matooke (plantain) harvest on a bicycle again today after cutting them down while clad in army boots.
It’s not a surprise that Museveni is giving Luwero more attention simply because he spent five years in the area during the bush war he fought to overthrow the previous dictatorial governments.
