THE Eastern region Youth MP, Zaake Kibedi, has asked his constituents to evaluate their failures and achievements during the past year in order to plan effectively for the new year.
Zake, speaking at Jinja mayorâ€™s ball to welcome the New Year on Monday, said lack of evaluation had hampered the development of the youth.
â€œI want youth leaders to plan for their counterparts so that they can engage in productive ventures instead of idling,â€ Zaake said.
There was drama when the crowd demanded to know why the regional affairs state minister, Isaac Musumba, who was the chief guest, was not accompanied by his wife, Salaamu Musumba.
Salaamu is the Forum for Democratic Change party vice-president.
After fidgeting for some minutes, Musumba told the celebrants: â€œMy wife and I share the name Musumba. When you see me, you should also take it that you have seen my wife. I am with her wherever I go,â€ causing the crowd to burst out in laughter.
Musumba commended Ugandans, particularly the residents Jinja town for being hospitable to the Commonwealth delegates.
The celebrations were marked with a display of fireworks and a beauty contest dubbed Miss Centenary.
Susan Amuron won the contest, where Cathy Acam emerged first runner-up and Ann Namuru, the second runner-up.
