URN-President Yoweri Museveni has said that he doesn’t need lectures about democracy.
Museveni was on Wednesday speaking at Kololo Independence Grounds after he was sworn in as President of Uganda.
Museveni said that democracy is one of the four principles of the NRM party.
He further noted that Parliament has 353 directly elective constituencies open to all Ugandans that have advanced level education and above the age of 18 years.
According to Museveni, he doubts that there are many comparable pro-people democratic structures in the world. He said that it is quite laughable to try to give lectures about democracy to architects of Uganda’s system.
Museveni also appealed to Ugandans to forget the post-election period and embark on their work through the four economic sectors including commercial agriculture, industries, services and ICT.
He says that these will help chase poverty, create wealth and jobs.
Regarding the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic, the President said that some sectors were badly affected and that government is working on something to help them as soon as the residual lockdown is sorted.
