Gov’t Development programs are meant to benefit all Ugandans embrace them- State house Officials tell Market Vendors


Officials from the State House Political Section have urged vendors to embrace government development programs like Emyooga and Parish Development Model to improve their livelihoods.

The officials led by Princess Nassolo Pauline and Ms. Flora Kabibi made the appeal earlier this week as they met vendors from five markets around the country. 

“Government has different programs intended to benefit the entire country. However, some have ignored them for fear to be blamed for eating NRM money and then end up languishing in absolute poverty” Nassolo highlighted. 

Nassolo also requested vendors to embrace government programs with enthusiasm because time for politics ended way back after voting.

On the other hand, Ms. Kabibi advised parents to groom their children to become responsible and morally upright citizens of Uganda.

“Women are responsible for children’s up bringing. Once a child misbehaves, it’s a woman to blame for not playing her role. Women’s negligence has resulted to bad behaved children who have insulted many people including the First Family,” she noted.

During the same meeting, the team gave out Shs100,000 each to over 200 vendors to boost their businesses.

The visited markets included Kalagi market, Lubega Market, Naigaga Market all in Mukono District plus Ssangalyambogo market and Nakwero market  in Wakiso District.

In response, the market vendors appreciated President Yoweri Museveni, State House Comptroller and the State House political section for extending a helping hand to them, saying that the funds will be invested efficiently to better their lives.

Ms. Christine Kayaga from Kalagi market said that they had no working capital yet they are single mothers with a huge role to look after their children.

“Now that we have received a booster we shall use it to boost our businesses,” she noted.

Mr. Ssekito Ismael Kijjo, the Vice chairman of Kalagi LC 1 revealed to the team that Kalagi market was allegedly sold to a one Galikuwa of Nakifuma who is currently threatening to evict them from the market.

Further more he requested President Museveni to intervene into the matter to save them from being kicked out of the facility.

On the other hand, Mr. Sserunjoji Edward, a market vendor at Nakwero B market also the Vice chairman of Nakwero B village appreciated the President for sending this reliable team that was able to listen to their plight and boosted their working capital.
