United States’ Embassy Economic Officer speaking on Thursday at MakerereUniversity’s College of Computing and Information Open Day, asked the people of Uganda, especially the youth to look and fight to have Uganda they want to see in 10 years.
“When I look out at the audience I see a youthful, exuberant, energetic crowd, brimming with ideas and inspiration looking for a way to make a better life for them and for Uganda.
Think about the Uganda you would like to see in ten or twenty years. What does it look like? I suspect you’d like to see a robust economy, a solid middle class, excellent educational opportunities, great health care, an end to corruption, and a government with strong institutions that respects human rights and is responsive to the your needs. These should be Uganda’s real priorities,” the U.S economic officer said, while they youth shouted that “we shall pick up guns and fight the dictatorial regime of president Museveni and his cohorts.”
