The Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Agriculture and Animal Husbandry, J. Ochola visited Bugisu and was welcomed by thousands of people mostly members of the newly formed Bugisu Coffee Marketing Association.

 Ochola, who was entertained by Kigisu drumming, singing and dancing, was handed a letter from the growers expressing dissatisfaction with the government statement that said the bill on Bugisu coffee would be delayed. 
 
It had been indicated to a delegation of the Bugisu Coffee Marketing Association by the minister,  Balamu Mukasa who told the delegation that the bill was to be published on November 21, but its introduction to the Legislative Council would be delayed.

The delay of the bill meant the association’s coffee would not be sold during the November season and this was to put Bugisu into serious predicament.
