President Yoweri Museveni issued 15 strongly-worded orders and strategic guidelines to the new Cabinet to implement within a specified period.

Museveni clearly spelled out what he wants the ministers to do for the quick transformation of Uganda into a middle-income country by 2020.

Museveni warned the ministers that business will no longer be as usual in this term.

One of the tough orders was to the health ministry to assist Ms. Enrica Pinetti to build her hospital at Lubowa so that medical referrals abroad are stopped and health complications are treated here.

Another specific and tough order was that the proprietors of Bujagali Power Dam must lower the costs of electricity by half by February 2017.
