Prime Minister Rugunda says Government has not utilised technical people to develop the country
- Prime Minister Ruhakana Rugunda says Government has not fully exploited good ideas brought forward by technical people which would have helped the country transform fast. He notes that a number of times good ideas brought by technical people are brushed aside by politicians, adding that such ideas would be important in dealing with challenges at hand.
- He said this at the ongoing Prof Emmanuel Tumusiime Mutebile center for excellence business dialogue under the theme “three decades of economic reforms in Uganda building a base for wealth creation”
- He has also paid tribute to Mutebile for his role in transforming the Ugandan economy. He explains that Mutebile was the lonely voice that opposed the misfiring barter trade system that the NRM Government had favored when it had just captured power.
