Independent Presidential candidate, Joseph Kiiza Kabuleta has told voters in Kabale district that he was sent by God to be president of Uganda, to help fight the country’s corruption scourge.
Kabuleta said while campaigning in the district on Tuesday that if the NRM government was committed to fighting corruption, Uganda would be much more developed today.
“Uganda had been projected by 2020 to be a middle income country while Tanzania projected to hit this target by 2025. But in July this year, they managed to achieve the goal while Uganda, at this rate of corruption we might not make it even in the next 20years,” he said.
Kabuleta said Tanzania’s success was directly attributable to their fierce fight against corruption.
He was addressing a campaign meeting at Victoria Guest House in Kabale municipality which was organised by Denis Ogaba, an aspirant on the Kabale Municipality Member of Parliament.
During the meeting, Kabuleta promised to revive cooperatives to help revamp the agricultural sector.
He also vowed to boost the tourism sector by among others intensifying marketing, upgrading Kisoro Airfield for gorilla trekkers and to ensure that the country claims its fair share of tourism revenue in the region.
The campaign meeting was relatively peaceful with no security deployment at the venue.
