Museveni Blames Public Servants Over Land Bill Unpopularity; Orders Training
Having come off with less than optimal support through his recent nationwide radio campaigns to promote a new constitutional land reform; President Yoweri Museveni has turned guns on some of the civil servants, who he accused of siding with the saboteurs.
President Museveni yesterday ordered the Ministry Information and National Guidance to roll out a nationwide sensitization campaign that should also incorporate public servants.
The Land reform for which the president has been drumming support since early last month, seeks to amend Article 26 of the constitution to ease government’s access to private land for its development projects.
He said while speaking at the 55th Independence Celebrations in Bushenyi yesterday, that the land reform proposal is in the best interest of the country, and he was surprised his people including civil servants are opposed to it.
