Gagamel big boss Moses Ssali aka Bebe Cool was among the most influential Ugandans who graced Tarehe Sita [army week] celebrations held in Kitgum district.
With his team donning “silent majority” caps and t-shirts, Bebe Cool was also accompanied by singers Catherine Kusasira, Big Eye, King Michael and Gravity Omutujju, to mention a few.
Speaking on the sidelines of the event, Bebe Cool said while the Uganda People’s Defence Forces (UPDF) celebrated 38 years of existence, many youth were still unaware of what is happening around them.
While witnessing the Core Teacher’s College ceremony presided over by President Yoweri Museveni, Bebe applauded the national army for not only engaging in developmental activities but also security the country.
He hailed them for sacrificing time, energy and even blood so that the rest of the Ugandans can enjoy peace.
In the same light, the singer encouraged the youth to not only sacrifice for their country but also engage in self-help projects that will bring them income.
“Wealth will not find you at home sleeping. You have to wake up and work. Jajja [Museveni] has made the roads for you to transport your products. He has built hospitals to treat the sick. Under his guidance, UPDF has brought security and stability,” Bebe noted.
He added: “Your part as young people is to utilise this opportunity and transform your lives. Successful people have to learnt to utilise their immediate environment.”
He said the president had just tarmacked Gulu-Kitgum road to better connect the two towns as well as the entire northern Uganda.
According to Bebe, people can now utilise the eased means of transport to trade, interact and develop their communities as well as the country.
