Otafire Doubts Middle Income Status Dream

The Justice and Constitutional Affairs minister Kahinda Otafire has expressed reservations about Uganda attaining a middle income status by 2020.

Speaking at the launch of the Uganda Registration Services Bureau Mbale regional office, Otafire said it is impossible with the current poor attitude of Ugandans towards work.

He says if this dream is to be realized Ugandans must change their attitude towards work and work ethics.

Minster Otafire now challenges the leaders to spear head this and ensure citizens get out of politics and work.

While delivering his inaugural speech last month, President Yoweri Museveni committed to getting Uganda to a middle income status by the end of his 5th term.
