MAYUGE - Gender state minister Rukia Isanga Nakadama has asked residents with small land holdings to avaoid sugarcane cultivation and concentrate on food production, saying this would cater for the food requirements of their families.

Isanga was on Thursday addressing residents of Mayuge town over issues concerning food security in the area.

She warned that although a sugar factory had been established in the district and would create employment for the residents, care must be taken to avoid compromising food security in the district.

The MP for Bunya South, Jowali Kyeyago, said the Government had no ill intentions in establishing the factory and commended the unity displayed by the Busoga Parliamentary Group in striving to have the factory.
