A rejoinder to Museveni’s State-of-the-Nation address

President Museveni delivered his annual State-of-the-Nation address last week and the Minister of Finance, Mr Matia Kasaija, presented the 2022-2023 budgetary proposals to Parliament a few days ago.

As is now customary, the focus of both speeches was on how to lift the population from poverty and how far government has succeeded with this. Since the budget is mainly fiscal, that focus is fitting. However, there should be more breadth and imagination in the President’s briefing on the state of Uganda than the constant focus on “wealth creation”, and this is not just a case of idealism.

In practical terms, over the last 10 or so years this focus on and obsession with creating wealth has led to a drive to construct roads between towns and within towns.

And then, over the last 30 years, there has been a general focus both by government in its policies and private citizens in their personal goals, of building or opening more and more hotels, restaurants
