Kampala, (UG): The National Coordinator in the Office of the NRM National Chairman (ONC), Hajjat Hadijah Namyalo Uzeiye has taken the self-empowerment gospel to the Busoga Kingdom through a wealth and job creation drive set to take place on the pre-wedding party (Kasiki) of the Kyabazinga William Gabula Nadiope IV and his wife, Inhebantu of Busoga, Mutezi Jovia.
In the African setting, the King’s Royal wedding presents an opportunity to usher in a great transformation of the socio-economic livelihood of the peasants and in that line of ideology, Ms Namyalo has resolved to organize an empowerment Kasiki for the Kyabanzinga on the 10th of November, 2023 at Bugembe Stadium in Jinja City.
The ONC boss, who also doubles as the Senior Presidential Advisor on Political Affairs says the drive for Jobs and wealth creation comes in handy to empower youths to engage in various income-generating activities to refute the UBOS findings which put Busoga among the poverty-stricken regions in the country.
On the Empowerment Kasiki of the Kyabazinga, Hajjat Namyalo targets to empower hundreds of beneficiaries from across the 12 districts that form the Busoga Sub-Region; Jinja City, Jinja District, Mayuge District, Bugiri District, Namayingo District, Bugweri District, Luuka District, Iganga District, Kamuli District, Buyende District, Namutumba District, and Kaliro District.
An inside source close to the Kyabogo ONC offices told this publication that among items set to be given out to the beneficiaries include; welding machines, restaurant equipment, spraying pumps, fertilizers, seedlings, mowing machines, hoes, paver-making machines, etc.
The capital items are purposed to start up and expand Small and Medium Enterprises with the objective of creating wealth and jobs for the people of Busoga, especially the Youth and Women.
The source further revealed that the choice of the items to be given to the respective receivers will depend on their capacity to make quick returns on investment, easy-to-manage techniques, and the wide-ready domestic market in Busoga Sub-Region and Uganda at large.
Speaking of the upcoming initiative, Namyalo said empowered people earn the capacity to directly be involved in the money economy which is the prime agenda of this financial year budget 2023/2024.
“The Economists have highlighted Uganda’s young population as a prime resource for boosting economic growth and development when it is made to be productive. This economic philosophy tallies with the National Chairman NRM who doubles as the President of the Republic of Uganda HE Gen Yoweri Kaguta Museveni line of approach to solving unemployment of the Youth which is a global challenge through household empowerment to produce a good or service on the ripe market in Uganda, East Africa, Africa, and World over.”
The Empowerment Kasiki project has been organized in collaboration with the Busoga Kingdom headed by the Kingdom’s Prime Minister Dr. Joseph Muvawala who is also a renowned senior economist and Executive Director of the National Planning Authority.
The pre-wedding party for the Kyabanzinga is to make an economic revival in Busoga Kingdom that is to create wealth and Jobs for the Youth, Women, and the entire population contributing to growing the Gross Domestic Product of Uganda currently at USD 42 trillion, improve livelihoods of the peasants, and consolidate the economic cohesion of Uganda.
The move also anchors to the NRM five promises of; Creating Jobs and Wealth, Delivering Education and Health, Ensuring Justice and Equity, Protecting Life and Property, and Achieving Economic and Political Integration as detailed in the NRM Manifesto 2021-2026.
