Kampala, Uganda | THE INDEPENDENT | President Yoweri Museveni has said the National Resistance Movement has in the past 32 years set the stage to be in position to tackle, step by step, the residual problems and convert Uganda into a middle-income country by 2020 and an upper middle-income country by 2040.

“As you can see, we have been handling many of the strategic bottlenecks: ideological disorientation, a weak State, emancipating the private sector, the human resource development , modernizing the infrastructure, integrating the fragmented markets….hence, we have got a better base than ever before,” Museveni said at celebrations in Arua marking the 32nd Liberation Day on Friday.

He however said that corruption of public servants ─ judicial staff, medical personnel, staff dealing with licensing projects as well as some elements of the political class were slowing progress.

” This corruption will be eliminated. There will be no equivocation on this issue.  “Enjokyi, ihakuurwa omuriro” (you use fire to tame aggressive bees).  The way we defeated the indiscipline of the army, is the way we are going to defeat corruption,” he said.

  1. First of all, many thanks for the information, and your perspective.
    I can appreciate this weblog and specifically information. At this point, I feel I use up much too much time on the net, perusing
    junk, effectively. This is a refreshing change from what I’ve known. Nonetheless,
    I think that browsing other people’s good ideas is a valuable investiture of at minimum a few of my weekly measure
    of time in my schedule. It’s the same as sorting through the junk heap to find the treasure.

    Or sometimes, whatever illustration functions for you.
    Still, sitting in front of the desktop computer is most likely as harmful to you as smokes and fried chips.
