Salutations to Bazzukulu and other Ugandans.
I’m traveling from my herds (amasyo) that are at Rwakitura, where I was dipping (Okubbika). These are the enjuungu and enkoroogyi (the herd that sticks close to the family leader) (the exotic-the fresians). Ticks are avoided by dipping.
Corona, n’ebola, mukulike (congratulations on surviving Corona and ebola). Moreover, congrats for enduring difficulties despite them, such as the high prices of commodities and other issues. As I often remind you, if you uphold peace and follow the NRM’s leadership, there is no challenge we cannot conquer.
The economy of Uganda is also growing both quantitatively and qualitatively. Five examples will do to demonstrate this. The following are the 5 instances: tea, coffee, and milk. In 1986, there were only 2 million 60kg bags of coffee produced; today, 8.5 million bags are produced, with a goal of 12 million bags in the near future. In 1986, there were 3 million kg of tea. It presently weighs 60 million kilograms. 200 million litres of milk were consumed annually; today, 5.3 billion liters are consumed. 3.6 billion liters of the total are sent to the plants.
Fourthly, cotton isn’t solely exported as lint cotton anymore. The shirts I’m wearing were manufactured from finely spun cotton from Uganda. The Uganda Scientists’ Kiira Motors is the fifth illustration.
So, there is nothing out there that we can’t aspire for and accomplish. The only things holding up implementation of government programs like PDM, Emyooga, micro-finance, etc. have been the phenomenon of parasitism by some careerist politicians and civil workers (abakola kipakasi). Both of these shouldn’t be tolerated and won’t be. Otherwise, there are no restrictions.
I have witnessed the parasitism of unpatriotic civil servants and extension personnel, such as veterinarians and doctors, at the expense of us who create wealth (the cattle owners, crop farmers, artisans, fishermen, etc.), by accepting bribes and peddling government medications, ever since the colonial era. Cops accepting kickbacks from the wakadalas (taxis).
Some lawmakers joined the corruption once the country gained its independence. The few politicians who were present before independence, including IK Musaazi, did not have access to the levers of power (decision-making). They therefore had no chance to act corruptly or otherwise.
So, it is a huge tragedy that people who were elected by the wealth producers betray them by turning corrupt, receiving bribes in exchange for favors, etc. Cattle farmers, crop farmers, craftspeople, fishers, manufacturers, traders, service providers, building contractors, etc. are now included on the list of wealth producers.
These wealth creators are all suffering as a result of parasites that take the form of dishonest public officials and politicians. But this sorrow is fabricated. It is as a result of corruption victims’ failure to file reports. The corrupt will be wrecked if they report.
These parasites pest foreign investors and other service providers in exchange for bribes. Just report. Eliminating this vice is simple. Real wealth producers (farmers, manufacturers, fishers, and service providers) are at battle with parasites represented by some dishonest civil workers, who are now joined by some politicians who buy and sell choices.
