This morning, my attention was drawn to this picture that speaks volumes.
I think for anyone out there who wishes this country well, they ought to have a plan on how we are going to empower our young people economically and socially so we are able to raise able citizens who can afford to pay taxes to help the country develop.
Otherwise, if we are coming up with a 40 Trillion UGx budget for 2021/22 and out of this we can only raise 15 Trillions in tax revenue, and also more than 50% of this budget is going to fund loan interests (we are paying only interests on the loans we get especially from China and we are not talking about paying the principal for now).
Something needs to be done. We need serious economists to redirect the development course of our country. Serious and robust citizenry empowerment initiatives are needed in order to arrest this situation.
I am saying this as a humble citizen from Kigarama. Is someone seeing the danger am seeing ahead!??
Greetings from Kigarama!
