The First lady also Minister for Education and Sports Ms Janet Kataaha Museveni has asked women to make commitments as they mark women’s days if the day initiated by the United Nations organization is to have meaning.
Speaking during the celebrations to mark the belated international women’s Day for Ntungamo district held at Kajara county grounds in Rwashamaire Hon Janet Museveni said celebrations of eating, dancing, and singing have no meaning whatsoever if no commitments to what women must do are not made.
Ms Museveni castigated women for abandoning their duties and turning up to celebrate women’s days instead of working towards fulfilling their goals and those of their families.
She argued women to start engaging in small savings groups that would help them easily access credit than going for money lenders.
Ms Museveni who is also the Ntungamo district NRM party chairperson warned politicians against early campaigns and advised them to allow elected leaders to perform for the time left in their term of office.
The Rushenyi county MP Ms. Naome Kabasharira underscored the need to prioritize local investment in sectors like tourism by improving infrastructure.
The Host MP, Ntungamo woman MP Ms. Baata Kamateneti said there has been gross abandonment of key government programs and neglect of the programs by civil servants who are meant to implement them, challenging the government that even the Parish development Model may collapse in the hands of citizens who are not aware of how it is going to be implemented.
