Govt to promote textile industry, President Yoweri

Sep '08
President Yoweri has discouraged the use of imported uniforms and encouraged the wearing of locally made uniforms in our armed forces in order to promote the growing of cotton and the expansion of the textile industry in Uganda.

This, he said, will also create jobs and increased earnings for our people in the textile production chain that starts with growing cotton in gardens and farms, and end with producing textile and clothes in factories.

The President, who is also Commander-in-Chief of Uganda armed forces was yesterday closing and passing out trainees of a three-months leadership course of one hundred and fourty one officers drawn from the UPDF, the Uganda Police and Prisons at the National Leadership Institute Kyankwanzi.

Speaking to the officers of the three forces about the subject of transformation of the Ugandan society and interventions taken to realize this goal, President Museveni told them that Uganda has now gone further in value addition and industrialization by transforming our raw fresh milk into powdered milk that is now exported to the international market. He also told them about the progress in fisheries and flower export sectors.

He told them that other interventions in transforming our society include the promotion of a healthy population through the Universal Immunization programme of our infant children, the introduction of Universal Primary Education (UPE) the Universal Secondary Education (USE) and the vocational training programmes in tertially institutions.

He said that through education and industrialization, we shall prevent the Uganda peasants from reproducing themselves.President Museveni told them that government is now engaged in further development of economic infrastructures such as roads and electricity generations.

He also told them about the Plan for Modernization of Agriculture and the Prosperity for All programmes where families are being encouraged to form commercial family companies in order for them to consolidate what they have and increase production for the market.

This, he said was in an effort to phase out subsistence farming and go for commercial farming in all the 5.5 million homesteads in rural Uganda.

The occasion was attended by the Chief of Defence Forces, Gen. Aronda Nyakairima who hailed the co-operation existing between the UPDF, the Uganda Police and the Prisons services.

The Commissioner General of Prisons, Dr. Johnson Byabashaija, the Assistant Commissioner of Police, Mr. Mucwangari and the commandant of the National Leadership Institute, Kyankwanzi Maj. Henry Matsiko attended the ceremony.
