The National Resistance Movement (NRM) Presidential flag bearer, Yoweri Museveni has commended local investors supplementing government efforts of creating jobs for its citizenry.
President Museveni lured foreign and local investors to invest in commercial farming, industries, services and ICT as the sectors that foster development and prosperity for all Ugandans.
The President hailed the state minister for labor and industrial relations who is NRM flag bearer for Rushenyi county Mwesigwa Rukutana for being an excellent local investor in Ntungamo District who is involved in the service sector that has employed many Uganda who would be unemployed.
President Museveni therefore appealed to local investors to wake up and invest in different portfolios saying that if Uganda had many local investors like him (Rukutana), unemployment would be a story or no more.
Minister Rukutana is the proprietor of Millennium Chambers Hotel Zzana, Ankole Resort and Spa, Ankole Mall and Radio Ankole all based in Ntungamo Municipality
