President Yoweri Museveni is expected tomorrow July 27 to hold another national address focusing on the prevailing economic situation in the country.
The President is expected to try to drive home his message of Wednesday last week in which he empathized that government will not try to interfere in the skyrocketing fuel prices through subsidies.
Addressing a campaign rally for the NRM candidate in the Soroti parliamentary by-election on Monday, Museveni said he will once again speak in details about the need for Uganda to start investing in other energy sources, to cut reliance on fossil fuels. Following a recent resolution by the G7 Summit to phase out fossil fuels, President Museveni said yesterday that government can’t waste resources subsidize fuel which he described as a temporary solution.
“I will speak on this on Wednesday,” he said. According to Presidential Press Secretary Lindah Nabusayi, tomorrow’s national address will be broadcast from Nakasero State Lodge live from all TVs and Radios at 8pm.
The address comes amid reports of rising unrest and planned protests from different parts of the country over the rising fuel pump prices.
