Officials from the State House Political Section have urged vendors to embrace government development programs to improve their livelihoods.
The officials led by Princess Nassolo Pauline and Ms. Flora Kabibi made the appeal last week as they met vendors from five markets around the country. The markets included; Kalagi market, Lubega Market, Naigaga Market (all in Mukono District ), Ssangalyambogo market and Nakwero market (all in Wakiso District).
During the courtesy call, Princess Nassolo advised market vendors to desist from politicking, saying that the political season was over and that it was time to work in order to improve their standards of living.
She explained to vendors that government development programs like Emyooga, Parish Development Model are meant to benefit all Ugandans irrespective of their social or political backgrounds.
On the other hand, Ms. Kabibi advised parents to groom their children to become responsible and morally upright citizens of Uganda.
During the same meeting, the team gave out Shs100,000 each to over 200 vendors to boost their businesses.
In response, the market vendors appreciated President Yoweri Museveni, State House Comptroller and the State House political section for extending a helping hand to them, saying that the funds will be invested efficiently to better their lives.
