For example, child labour is heavily discouraged as is depletion of natural forests. He sympathises with tobacco farmers with their families who number about 30,000. I do not agree with him. Most smokers in Uganda are the rudest I have ever met in the world.
They have no courtesy and have no idea how most non-smokers destest cigarette smoke. Not only is the smoke very harmful to both smokers and non-smokers, it is extremely irritating and offensive to many.
This is a fact that most smokers do not seem to know. Choosing to smoke is one's private business but why force it down the lungs of non-smokers, including pregnant women, children and babies?
Non-smokers have no choice! Where can they put their noses? I suspect cigarette smoke does not irritate Nagenda as it does most non-smokers.
That probably explains why he could endure the smoke in the BAT board room for 25 years. Tobacco farmers should change to another 'human-friendly' crop. Period! Even slave traders lost a lot of revenue when slave trade was abolished but I cannot find it in my heart to sympathise with them.
A similar argument was advanced about the manufacturers of polythene bags. They would lose a lot of business, it was said. They should change to paper bags and leave plastics alone.
Marijuana growers also make a lot of money but fortunately the practice is outlawed. People should not accept to suffer silently for the pleasure and profit of a few people who choose to live their lives recklessly.
Tobacco farmers should switch to other crops
