Day 2: Museveni, Natasha lead trekkers on 20km walk

Museveni and Natasha set off for Kiboga district

President Museveni as Sunday morning led trekkers on the second leg of their march from Nakaseke district to Kiboga district.

The president who is accompanied by his daughter Natasha Karugire and son-in-law Odrek Rwabwogo ended the first leg of his 100km walk Saturday and spent the night at Bukatira in Semuto sub county, Nakaseke district.

Before beginning his march on the second day of six-day #AfrikaKwetu trek, he first interacted with people and took them through the history of NRA struggle.

Museveni recalled that at the start, a unit of 50 soldiers had only 3 guns in Luweero Triangle but within a year they had 40 guns with no casualties.

The unit was called Ruta Unit commanded by Gen Elly Tumwiine. That’s why this place was chosen for the #M7Trek.

“I put in place UPE & USE so that children study for free but some schools have started putting fees I don’t know about on them making them fail to study,” he said.

Museveni also noted that through Operation Wealth Creation [OWC], in the struggle to increase household income, 30,000 orange seeds were supplied.

“21,000 coffee seedlings too, cows, pigs & animals and plants. I will develop Luweero on the same rate with other places with power, water etc,” he explained.
