Wealth Creation: Museveni Tours Kigezi

President Yoweri Museveni on Saturday took his Operation Wealth Creation tour to Kabale in the Kigezi sub region, health where he launched a Ugx 64 million solar irrigation project.

The project was donated to Charles Rutaro, a local farmer by the president himself when he visited him last year.

During yesterday’s tour, President Museveni expressed concern over the rate at which the locals are encroaching on wetlands.

He noted that farmers in the districts of Kabale and Rubanda have failed to put into consideration the basic environmental protection practices.


He advised that those that cultivate in the swamps should put a buffer zone of fifty meters from the rivers so as to protect the swamps and also access water that will be used in the irrigation of their gardens.

Rutaro a secondary school teacher told the president that farmers in the Sub County were being hampered by transport means to help in transporting their output to markets in the nearby towns.


It was then that the President donated to him a pick truck to help him with transport.
