BUYENDE - President Museveni has reiterated his call to the people of Buyende district in general and Kagulu sub-county in particular to make Kagulu hill an attractive tourist site for both adventure and leisure that will in turn provide them with the opportunities to become service providers who will create a lot of wealth.

“A service sector like tourism creates opportunities for service providers like those who sell food and drinks, transporters and later accommodation for tourists,” he noted.

The President directed the construction of steps at the hill to enable the elderly tourists who may wish to have some adventure and leisure to climb to the top with ease.

He also directed the fixing of conductors on the hill and other high grounds that are likely to attract lightning during the rainy season.

“I came when it was raining and you know high grounds are likely to attract lighting so the fixing of conductors must be done. We don’t want any risk for anybody,” he cautioned.

Museveni challenged all Ugandans to create wealth at household levels by getting deeply involved in the four major sectors that include profitable agro-modern commercial farming, small-scale industry like maize milling, milk cooling, juice processing and rice hullers among others.

While he promised to extend electricity to the area, Museveni raised concern over the very poor methods of fishing and asked the area leaders to find ways of stopping the practice.
