In a statement posted on State House Facebook page, Mr Museveni congratulated them on fasting for the last 24days so far.

Mr Museveni further noted that electricity penetration has increased, the road network has expanded across the country and there is adequate Security.
These achievements is what, according to Museveni, the government will capitalise on to maximise this foundation to propel Uganda to a middle-income nation.
“I call upon you to participate in building the economy in areas of commercial farming, manufacturing and industry,” state house quoted president Museveni telling the gathering.
