Day three of the Afrika Kwetu Great Trek trail
 
Bukomero, Kiboga: Before getting back on the Afrika Kwetu Great Trek trail for Day 3, deputy government spokesperson Col Shaban Bantariza delivered a lecture on the value, use and application of power.
 
"Some of the people who want to take over from us do not know what power is," he said.
 
"The power that is in the NRM now is very precious. It is something we paid a high price for.
 
“We, the National Resistance Movement, are not the first political entity (in Uganda) to take over power. There were others before us - but how did they use it?
 
“Power is not a charity to be given to anyone who wants to use it," Bantariza added.
