The President was recently speaking during a meeting with the Army Officers, led by Gen. Salim Saleh and the Minister for Luwero-Rwenzori area, Hon. Sarah Kataike at State House, Entebbe.

The group presented to the President samples of maize flour, sweet potato flour, ghee and butter from cow milk all processed at Namunkekera Agro- Processing Industry located in Nakaseke district.

The group also told the President that they have in store 943,000 tons of maize flour, 463 tons of beans and 37,000 bags of cassava adding that they have planted 10.8 million coffee seedlings, 518,000 seedlings of orange, 166,000 seedlings of mango, 2 million seedlings of tea and 140,000 tree seedlings.

President Museveni told the group that he has decided to re-structure NAADS programme so that the funds that are meant for that programme will be used to provide inputs for farmers as a way of working to ensure that Uganda is transformed into a better economically development country.


The President noted that each year the government spends Shs. 203 billion towards the implementation of the NAADS programme.

He observed that most of that money was used for paying salaries of the staff instead of channelling it to the provision of inputs for farmers.

The President told the meeting that Army Officers will be deployed in all the constituencies in Uganda to coordinate the re-structured NAADs programme with the aim of achieving better results.

“What you have done is a good pilot project and because of that, I have decided to re-organize NAADS and deploy more Army Officers in all the constituencies in Uganda”, he said.

Mr. Museveni said NAADS money was meant to help the poor people to develop themselves through different enterprises in order to alleviate household poverty.

The President used the same meeting to sound a warning to Ugandans against land fragmentation. He urged those with expansive land holdings to engage in commercial farming.

Gen. Salim Saleh noted that the issues pertaining to delays in procurement and lack of transport were some of the challenges affecting the implementation of their programs adding that solutions to those challenges must be sought out quickly to ensure progress in the work.

The Minister for Luwero Triangle Hon. Sarah Kataike thanked the President for giving them additional Shs. 20 billion this financial year towards the implementation of the project.

She noted lack of clear records of the veterans as some of the challenges that make work and planning difficult for them.
