This was after he had addressed similar rallies in Fort Portal on Thursday. In Fort Portal, he met over 1,000 leaders from Tooro region at Kalya Courts Hotel in Fort Portal town.

He said it was dangerous that 68% of the population was still engaged in subsistence agriculture and were not part of the money economy.
