Get out of wetlands, river banks to avert disaster – President Museveni


President Yoweri Museveni has urged Ugandans that have invaded, cultivated and settled in wetlands, forestry reserves, river banks and lake shores to leave them peacefully and save the country from disaster.


The President was yesterday speaking at a public rally at Rushoroza Seed School in Kihihi sub-county in Kanungu district shortly after his impromptu tour of Kameme village, which is worst hit by drought and famine. The village also experienced a severe storm that destroyed vast expanses of agriculture land.


The President also toured Ntungwa River in Kihihi sub-county, which separates Kanungu from Rukungiri districts and directed the State House Comptroller Lucy Nakyobe Mbonye to immediately ensure the establishment of an irrigation scheme using solar water pumps to enable the area do agriculture all year round without relying on natural factors.
