The President was the Guest of honour at the tourism promotion drive led by Busoga Tourism Initiative at a ceremony marred by heavy rain 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 the country’s’ modern cites, according to Sarah Kagingo, the Presidential Special Assistant for Communications.

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

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


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

President Museveni once again challenged all wanainchi to create wealth at household levels by getting deeply involved in the 4 major sectors that include well – 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.

He also promised to upgrade other roads in their area into first class murram ones.

The President 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.
