President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni who is also the NRM Presidential flag-bearer in the forthcoming General elections has urged leaders to always show people what to do by leading the way.
“We want a leader who shows what to do for the people by being exemplary,” he said.
He asked all leaders to desist from acts of corruption. He particularly told LC 5 chairpersons and their councilors to reject anything to do with corruption.
Candidate Museveni was addressing delegates at a campaign meeting at Kyamate in Ntungamo district. Those at the meeting included ministers, members of parliament, NRM flag bearers and delegates from the 2 districts of Ntungamo and Rwampara.
Museveni told the delegates about the long journey of rescuing Uganda from the bad leadership pointing out that it was politics of identity that derailed the development of not only Uganda but also Africa. He added that the trend was changed by a young student group that has made Uganda what it is today.
He urged leaders to encourage their people to get involved in the money economy through modern commercial and calculated agriculture.
He said all is being done to have East Africa and Africa integrated for purposes of a bigger market for our products that will lead to sustainable prosperity of our people.
