“Service sector like in tourism creates opportunities for service providers like those who sell food and drinks, transporters and later accommodation for tourists,” he noted.

The President was Saturday the guest of honour at the tourism promotion drive led by Busoga Tourism Initiative at a ceremony marred by heavy rain held at Kigulu hill in Buyende district.

Kagulu hill is one of the tourist attractions in Busoga Sub-region that is to be transformed into one of Uganda’s modern sites.

Mr. Museveni directed the construction of steps at the hill to enable elderly tourists who may wish to have some adventure and leisure to climb to the top with ease.


He also directed the fixing of conductors on the hill and other high grounds that are likely to attract and arrest lightning during rainy seasons.

“I came when it was raining and you know high grounds are likely to attract lighting; so the fixing of conductors must be done. We don’t want any risk for anybody”, he cautioned.

Mr. Museveni once again challenged all wanainchi to create wealth at household level by getting deeply involved in the 4 major sectors that include calculated modern commercial farming, small scale industry like maize milling, milk cooling, juice processing and rice hullers, among others.

President Museveni pledged to tarmac Kamuli-Bukungu road and Musiita-Nankoma road as well. He also promised to upgrade other roads in their area to first class murram ones.

He further promised to extend electricity to the area. He, however, raised concern over very poor methods of fishing and asked leaders to find ways of stopping the practice.

The colourful ceremony was attended by, among others, the Speaker of Parliament, the Rt. Hon. Rebecca Kadaga, MPs, religious and traditional leaders.
