The Prime Minister Rt. Hon. Nabbanja Robinah has asked local leaders to be patriotic and visionary to transform their areas.
Nabbanja made the call while meeting leaders from the sub counties of Mwitanzige, Kitaihuka, Birembo and Igayaza town council at her country home in Kakumiro district.
Nabbanja said that as leaders they need to be visionary and develop big plans to succeed in life.
She said that the love for our country is paramount in the socio-economic transformation agenda.
Hajji Abbey Mukwaya, a senior presidential advisor on political affairs says that government services are not being felt on the ground because of civil servants who do not have the love for the country.
Fred Byamukama, the state minister for transport who is also the Bugangaizi west MP, asked the people of Kakumiro to continue supporting the NRM government and president Yoweri Museveni for continuity of development.
The premier briefed the leaders that she has been conducting such meetings for quite many years to assess the delivery of government services and also plan better.
Aisa Agaba Black, the Bugangaizi East member of parliament decried shoddy works especially in roads and asked those responsible to work on the spotted gaps.
Nabbanja warned leaders against engaging in early campaigns saying that it’s time to serve the electorate and wait for the rightful time.
The prime minister has so far met leaders from 15 sub counties with an objective of assessing the status of service delivery for improvement.
