EDITOR: I want to awaken our sleeping leaders that if the railway was functioning in northern and north-eastern Uganda, better quality sugarcane would be supplied to SCOUL.
The cane SCOUL grows looks like grass! In places like Kabermaido, Soroti, Lira, Dokolo, Katakwi, Amuria and Kumi, there is better quality sugarcane. Outgrowers can be recruited into the industry.
The other alternative is to build a sugar factory in Soroti. If our politicians and all leaders were thinking full time for the welfare of all Ugandans, mistakes would not be arising all the time.
Our leaders seem to be concentrating only in what can bring in instant returns for themselves rather than the public good.
Foe example, how can the Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) executive director, Jennifer Musisi, suggest a salary of sh43m? How much does the garbage collector in KCCA earn? Who does the real work and deserves more pay?
Railway can lead to better quality sugarcane
