President Yoweri Museveni has called on the elite youth to sensitize the public on issues affecting their life and share with them important information that can help wananchi solve challenges they face.

“I would like to remind the educated youth that they should help the public to know what they don’t know because they are the ones who are informed. They should share information with the public,” he counselled.

The President, accompanied by the 1st Lady, Janet Museveni and family members, was among Christians of Nshwerenkye who attended Christmas service at St. Luke Nshwerenkye Church of Uganda in Kenshuga Sub-County Kiruhuura district.

The service was presided over by Rev. Kwesiga Emmanuel Katamunanwire.

The President reminded the congregation that their area had been infested by tse-tse flies but after his Advanced Level studies in the 1960s, his group sensitised wananchi on the dangers of pastoralism and encouraged them to adopt the habit of permanent settlement.

He, therefore, asked the youth to emulate the same example and share whatever important information they have with wananchi that could help the people to overcome some of the challenges they face.

Mr. Museveni assured cattle farmers that government is to procure drugs that will eliminate ticks that disturb their animals during the dry season.

He also urged farmers to plant pastures, harvest and store them for their animals to feed during dry spells

The President asked the leadership of Nshwerenkye Church of Uganda to organise their Jubilee celebrations to enable elders also attend while they are still alive.
