President Museveni yesterday met one of the fired NRM rebel MPs, Winfred Niwagaba for the first time in several months.
President Museveni was at the official launch of a wine producing factory at Maziba – Maziba Fruit Wine Producers located in Maziba Sub County, Ndorwa East constituency, Kabale District.
Initially, the factory was an initiative of a Kabale farmer Mr. Tindimweba Fulgensi who processed pineapples into wine locally.
With support from government through Uganda Industrial Research Institute (URI), farmers have been trained and formed a cooperative union that manages this facility.
The factory now produces 400 liters of wine daily compared to the then 20 liters.
Maziba Fruit Wine Producers directly employs 80 people and this number is set to increase when production is at full capacity.
President Museveni later addressed a rally at Maziba sub county headquarters, where he urged the people of Ndorwa East to engage in commercial agriculture as a means of improving household income, and also discouraged them from the practice of land fragmentation.
