President Museveni has commissioned an internet cable linking Moroto to New York City in United States of America.
“I feel embarrassed on behalf of the opposition,” Museveni said.
“I was in Karamoja sub-region, opened a good hotel, commissioned the road from Soroti to Moroto, and the internet linking Moroto to New York by underground cable.”
He added: “I feel sorry people are there talking but not appreciating facts.”
Museveni also commissioned the completed Soroti—Akisim—Moroto road [150.3Km].
The first section of the road traverses the districts of Soroti, Amuria & Katakwi up to Akisim in Napak District.
The 2nd section traverses through Akisim in Napak to Moroto.
One of the highlights of his tour of the Karamoja region was the commissioning of Hotel Africana, a private magnificent hotel that is expected to boost tourism and employment.
This hotel is part of the BMK businesses. It has more than 70 rooms and other conference rooms and facilities.
The president started his tour of the region on Wednesday 18th November, 2020 with the address of leaders from Moroto, Napak, Nabilatuk, Nakapiripit and Amudat and later addressed the people on radio and TV with a translation in Jie.
On Thursday 19th November he addressed leaders from Abim, Kabong, Karenga and Kotido and later addressed the people on radio and TV with translation in Pokot.
The President concluded Friday the 20th November 2020 with a meeting of the youths and an address of the people on radio and TV with a translation in Labwor, the Luo speaking dialect of Akarimojong.
In all his addresses, the President emphasized the preaching of politics of unity that has characterised the NRM administration over the 34 year tenure of the affairs of Uganda.
He reminded the people why the previous regimes had failed to govern Uganda because of the sectarian politics of identity as opposed to needs of the people.
