President Yoweri Museveni has set off for Apac, where he will spend the third day of his campaign trail.
“The commitment to all our supporters is that we shall bring the message to you, but safely. Stay safe, do not tempt the pandemic,” Museveni wrote on Twitter.
While campaigning, Museveni said the government is committed to compensating animals lost in Lango during insurgencies and raids by Karimojong warriors at the start of NRM regime.
Addressing members of the leading National Resistance Movement (NRM), party at Golf Course in Lira on Tuesday, November 9, Museveni said the government will compensate people who lost their animals during raids and insurgencies that rocked Northern Uganda for nearly two decades.
He said sh30b has been set aside for compensating people in Lango, Teso and Acholi sub-regions, in addition to constructing the road from Lira-Otuke to Moroto and Soroti-Lira to Kamdini.
The President grilled district LC5 chairpersons for the poor roads in Lango sub-region, saying the government provided every district with construction equipment, but the state of roads is very poor.
Museveni was in Lira for his second day of presidential campaigns after launching his campaign roadmap in Luwero on Monday.
After his address, the President’s supporters took to the streets to show their support for a leader they say is the reason for the development of Uganda.
