President to Address Nation Today on State of Affairs

By Melanie Aanyu,

President Museveni will later today address the nation to give an update on the current state of affairs.

The function that will be held at the Kololo independence grounds will see Museveni give an update on the state of affairs of the country but also provide solutions.

Among some of the issues that are expected to be prominent in the president’s address is the issue of the skyrocketing commodity prices.

Whereas in his previous speeches he has not provided a specific solution to the problem of commodity prices which are in the roof, the president asked members of the public to be frugal.

Whereas many expected government to at least announce measures like subsidies and tax waivers, President Museveni shot all this down saying it is suicidal.

However, many insisted that by emphasizing frugality, the president ought to lead by example by cutting the State House daily budget.

The president recently asked Russia and Ukraine to negotiate to ensure the ongoing impasse which has partly contributed to skyrocketing of commodity prices is solved.

Members of the public however expect the president to provide tangible solutions to the economic situation which recently saw Bank of Uganda also increase the central bank rate so as to help arrest inflation.
