First Lady Janet and I joined parishioners of to Nshwerenkye C.O.U today for prayers where I had an opportunity to speak to the congregation about stocking energies into socio-economic projects for the good of generations to come.
I am a firm believer of the need for mankind to establish dominion over the earth, and to do that, we must be prepared to constantly adopt appropriate changes while maintaining our peculiar cultural heritage.
I thank the people of Nkore and the greater cattle corridor for heeding my teaching against nomadism. And now it's time to move this on to rotational grazing and de-stocking in some cases where the animals are much more than the available land. For example a fresian cow which does not produce up to 40litres of milk per day is a burden to its owner.
The issue of ticks is being handled by government and we shall need maximum compliance of farmers on this because we found that ticks had built resistance to the drugs because of being misused.
Family units are very close to this socio-economic struggle. This is why I speak of moving from physical division of property among children/family members to shareholding in a unified business entity where each one plays a role. This is the way of the future and the children must be taught and prepared for this.
This extends to our daughters who is old times were disregarded from parent homes when they got married. I think marriage is good and our daughters must go and become part of their marital homes but remain with an irrevocable stake in the family of their parents.
Finally I welcome Mrs. Fausta Bagaza, former first Lady of Burundi to Uganda and wish you all a happy Easter once again.
