KAMPALA– President Yoweri Tibuhaburwa Kaguta Museveni has summoned all his Advisors for a presidential retreat at Kyankwanzi according to the Office of the President.
The retreat is scheduled to begin on the 12th of December 2021 slated to run for a full week and all Presidential Advisors are expected to attend in order to have their inaugural general interface with the President for the 2021-2026 term.
According to the Minister of Presidency Milly Babirye Babalanda, the planned retreat arrangement has been confirmed and all the concerned people have been informed about the programme.
According to Babalanda, the interaction between the Head of State and his advisors is largely expected to revolve around the manifesto implementation business and other undisclosed business that may come up.

“The mantle of securing the future of Uganda is so great a task for one to play bets on. It’s not a gamble. It’s a matter which requires lifelong commitment, unending sacrifice and vast experience” reads Minister’s statement.
Minister Babalanda said that the NRM is the only political organisation that can be trusted with the sacred responsibility of securing Uganda’s future.
She emphasized the need for creation of jobs and wealth through promotion of commercial agriculture, Industrialisation, service delivery, Information and Communications technology(ICT) , Education, Health and Water.
Others are key manifesto promises whose implementation the government has embarked on include ensuring justice and equity, protecting life and property, achieving Economic and political integration.
