Hardly two years ago, Uganda had a budget where it depended on donors to finance almost half its budget.

The MP for Makindye West Hussein Kyanjo says he is happy this budget has more money allocated to the agricultural sector and increases salaries of teachers which he says is a positive aspect about this budget.

The State Minister for Primary Health, James Kakooza says what delighted him about this budget is the fact that Uganda will be able to fund 75% of its budget which is good for the country.
