President Yoweri Museveni has condoled with the family of a civilian veteran Late Ramanzan Ruboha in Kagadi district.
The minister of state in charge Luwero/Rwenzori affairs Alice Kaboyo while delivering the message asked both NRA veterans and contact persons to actively engage in government programmes aimed at wealth creation.
Kaboyo says that despite the special interventions designed to support the veterans and contact persons all over the country, they should embrace other wealth creation programmes such as Emyooga and PDM.
Kaboyo was today representing the Prime minister of Uganda Robinah Nabbanja to deliver condolences to the family of an NRA historical late Aramanzan Ruboha upon the loss of one Deo Kasiba who recently died in a road accident in Kagadi district.
Kasiba was the heir to Late Ruboha who died in the month of March 2023.
During an engagement held in Ikuma village, Kagadi town council, Kagadi district and later Kakumiro district, the civilian veterans raised concerns on low incomes and their general welfare.
Responding to concerns from the civilian veterans, Kaboyo urged technocrats to give priority to veterans and contact persons while selecting beneficiaries during the implementation of government programmes.
She challenged them on mindset change instead of waiting for government assistance.
Kaboyo commended civilian veterans for their continued support, patriotism and pledged to deliver their concerns to the head of state.
Children of the veterans and local leaders lauded president Yoweri Museveni and the NRM government for consistently remembering their fathers who contributed to the NRA bush struggle.
Minister Kaboyo delivered 10 million shillings as condolences from President Yoweri Museveni to the family of Ruboha and also promised to support the family with another 10 million shillings if they form a SACCO or for a revolving fund.
Kagadi, Kibaale and Kakumiro played a great role during the NRA struggle that ushered in the NRM government in 1986.
