Kibuku (UG):- Hon. Namuyangu Jennifer Kacha, the Minister of State for Bunyoro Affairs who also doubles as Woman Member of Parliament for Kibuku District recently organized a series of agricultural training sessions for constituents in Nabiswa and Kibuku sub-counties.

The hands-on workshops, held on Thursday, May 23rd, provided instruction on a variety of profitable farming enterprises, including fish ponds, vegetable gardens, pineapple and banana plantations, fruit trees, poultry, and livestock rearing.

“These people were taught by different people, including Bola Stephen, a veterinary officer,” the minister explained to the gathered residents. “The goal is to equip you with practical knowledge that can help you improve your livelihoods, rather than relying solely on financial handouts.”

The minister emphasized the importance of self-reliance, urging the community members to “desist from thinking that politicians should always give them money.” She encouraged them to “pick a leaf” from her own diverse farming activities.

Several attendees who had previously visited the minister’s demonstration farm shared testimonials about how those experiences had positively transformed their lives and incomes. 

“Such kind of workshops helps us learn new things that we may not be aware of, and then after learning, we put them into action,” said Hon. Kadiama Charles Busolo, the former Kibuku District Local Council V Chairman. “This helps us develop our communities and ourselves.”

In addition to the training, the minister provided each sub-county with 100-seater tents and a hoe for every individual participant, to facilitate the implementation of the new techniques.

Musakuwona Erina, a resident of Bujwanyi village in Nabiswa sub-county, expressed her gratitude to the minister, saying, “Hon. Minister, please continue doing so, as this will help people to come out of poverty.”

The minister also announced that after observing the serious and dedicated farmers, a select few would be chosen to receive further training at the president’s model farm in Mayuge district, to deepen their expertise.

This multifaceted initiative by Hon. Namuyangu Jennifer Kacha underscores her commitment to empowering her constituents through practical, sustainable agricultural development, rather than temporary financial aid.
