Monday, October 28, 2019

President Yoweri Museveni has pledged continued support to the youth that are engaged in a diversity of development projects in the country.

“Through your SACCOs, the Government will support you especially if you are organized,” he said.

The President was today addressing Ghetto Youth Groups who are under their umbrella organization known as NRM Youth Camp at their Kibuye headquarters in Kampala District.

He hailed the Katwe-based youth in Kampala District for innovations and skills development and highly commended them for propelling the idea that had enabled them to make a vehicle. 

He, therefore, assured them that the Government will support them in promoting further innovations and many other novel ideas that are geared to exploit to the fullest extent their abilities in the struggle for national development.

The President revealed that he started to identify and associate with Ghetto community way back in 1968 as a student leader adding that it is not a new thing for him to be with the Ghetto wananchi.

Mr. Museveni strongly advised the youth to form groups that share same interests, as SACCOs have all along done, so that their groups can be easily empowered to access government support.
