Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni has called on his fellow citizens to change their perspective on employment. During the recent Labour Day celebrations, he emphasized that the lack of jobs is not the root cause of Uganda’s challenges. Instead, he pointed to attitude and vision as critical factors.


Museveni highlighted the success story of Mr. Nyakana, who earns 180 million shillings annually from just one acre of land through agriculture. Despite having fertile soil and ample rainfall, many Ugandans have not fully utilized these resources to create wealth.


The President urged labor unions to prioritize wealth creation over job advocacy. According to him, jobs are a byproduct of wealth, and without wealth, sustainable employment opportunities cannot thrive.


In addition, Museveni criticized the lending practices of international institutions such as the World Bank and IMF. He questioned their allocation of funds, emphasizing the need for investment in essential infrastructure rather than quick loans for less critical purposes. The President also advocated for practical capacity building on the ground, rejecting the notion of boardroom-based approaches.


By shifting the focus from jobs to wealth creation, Uganda can unlock its potential and provide opportunities for its youth within the country.
