Preach Wealth creation Message – Museveni Urges Women Leaders

President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni has challenged women leaders to preach the message of getting everyone into the money economy instead of spending time politicking.

“Every homestead must join the money economy with “ekibaaro” and those with small pieces of land should use the four-acre model of farming,”

The President made the remarks while addressing the leaders of the National Women’s Council and the National Resistance Movement (NRM) Women’s League at State House-Entebbe.

He advised the women leaders to encourage people with small pieces of land to adopt the four acre model, where on the first acre they can plant coffee, on the second acre they can grow fruits, on the third acre they can grow food for the family, and on the fourth acre they can grow pasture for animals, and in the backyard, they can carry out poultry, piggery, and fishing farming in ponds.

“If you do this type of farming, you will defeat poverty through commercial agriculture,” President Museveni stressed.

He promised to organise a tour for the women leaders to visit some of the people who have listened to his wealth creation message, like Mr. Richard Nyakana of Rwengaju, Fort Portal, and his (President) neighbours in Kisozi, Gomba.

President Museveni informed the women leaders that, apart from commercial agriculture, they can also encourage people to use the Emyooga program and small-scale manufacturing like shoemaking, tailoring, among others, to get out of poverty.

He also urged the leaders to encourage Ugandans to embrace the services sector, like transport, medicine, and teaching, to improve their livelihoods.

The fourth sector, ICT, is another avenue to help Ugandans transform their lives economically.

President Museveni informed the women leaders that the reason why NRM ranks above other political parties in Uganda is because they prioritize people’s needs over their identity based on religion and tribes.

“The first need we dealt with was security. The main problem was insecurity, and the moment that problem was solved, the NRM became popular,” he explained.

“You, as NRM preachers, should preach to people to get out of poverty using the NRM concept.”

Hajjat Faridah Kibowa, the Chairperson of the National Women’s Council, thanked President Museveni for supporting and elevating women in leadership.

The meeting was also attended by Hon. Betty Amongi, the Minister of Gender, Labour, and Social Development.
