Kalangala district was among the hard-to-reach areas in Uganda making public service delivery hard to improve the livelihood of the people.
Yesterday the Office of the National Chairperson for NRM coordinators headed by Mr. Vicent Birimuye held a meeting with the RDC Ms. Najjuma Juliet Senkole to discuss how to fast track the implementation of the NRM manifesto 2021-26 based on the five promises; creating wealth and jobs, delivering education health and water, ensuring justice and equity, protecting life and property and achieving economic and political integration.
The RDC noted the great achievements in the transportation sector that now Kalangala has two modern ferries (MV Pear and MV Ssesse), an ongoing seed secondary school construction project in Bujjumba and the scaling up tourism. However, there are challenges to low enrolment in schools for mainly girls, HIV/AIDS and low investment in the water transport. She appreciated the contributions of the minister for works and transport Gen. Edward Katumba Wamala to see Kalangala a city to attract everyone. That they are also facing electricity challenge despite the good promises from the government to invest in the distribution of electricity to enable all citizens access the grid.
Mr. Birimuye Vicent appreciated the RDC for job well done and assured her that, the National Chairperson for NRM HE YK Museveni through SPA/Political Affairs Namyalo Hadijah Uzeiye expressed concern and commitment to transform Uganda to a money economy. He added that, as Masaka Sub-Region coordinators they are taking on monitoring especially on the use of the education support funds for UPE and USE, availability of drugs in health centres among other key items to better the quality of livelihood of the people of Uganda.
He raised concern about the ignorant young population in Masaka Sub-region and the country at large that calls for intensive engagement to understand the NRM/A gospel which is a good news for prosperity of everyone and therefore, the RDC should ensure that, the civil servants carry on their fiduciary duties to the NRM government. He appreciated the good management of the ferries and eased connection to other parts of Uganda.
The RDC promised teamwork and congratulated the coordinators for the appointments to serve the NRM and Uganda under the able leadership of H.E YK Museveni.
