Minister Bahati Warns Against Empty Campaign Promises

The Minister of State for Planning has warned all presidential candidates against making empty promises to the electorate.
Hon. David Bahati says some of the promises the candidates have made cannot be fulfilled in the short term.
Speaking at the launch of the State of Uganda and state of the world population reports, Hon.Bahati said presidential candidates have been promising to increase teachers’ salaries, raise the budget allocation for agriculture and other sectors and provision of computers and sanitary pads to all school going children without considering the technicalities involved.
He therefore urges them to stop exploiting the situation and lying to Ugandans.
