PHOTOS: Museveni Gets Up-close with Rural Luwero

President Yoweri Museveni yesterday kick started his four day tour of the rural areas of the Luwero Triangle in his effort to preach the gospel of modernized agriculture.

The President also used the opportunity to meet and interact with the families of the people who helped in the armed struggle that brought the NRM government to power.


One of these was the family of the late Lule, prescription whose house Museveni and his fighters used to store drugs. He also visited the home of Late Zakayo Kalibala, another veteran, whose son Esau Wasswa is running a big coffee plantation.

Dressed up casually in purple, khaki and army boots, the president visited several households in Kawumu village where he inspected the gardens of locals and assessed progress of UPDF geared Operation Wealth Creation programme.


As he toured the local farmers’ gardens, plantations and homes, Museveni advised them on how to impelement his four-acre prosperity formula, where farmers are advised to split up this land and optimize it, with more income generating agricultural ventures.



In spite of reports that more than half of the coffee seedlings distributed by OWC have dried up accross the country, the president was relieved that Luwero is doing slightly better.

Museveni urged the program coordinators not to stop at distributing seeds but follow up with supervision, and for the agriculture officials should offer technical assistance to these farmers.


Parish chiefs were also tasked to gather information about the number of people involved in OWC and those yet to benefit in each parish.
