This morning,  my attention was drawn to this picture that speaks volumes.

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!

  1. Thanks mentor

  2. I don’t think we even need serious economists that bad. We just need dedicated people who can steer the country forward. Anybody should be in position to understand that continued unsustainable borrowing will cause irreplaceable damage to the country’s future generations.

      I agree with you entirely. We need the right people in those positions of leadership. The leaders who can create a favorable operating environment for all citizens to try out what they can,and in the end, we shall have some much from empowered citizens. Taxation then won’t be a big burden, and also if we can use the taxes collected better, to ensure the citizens get the services they deserve.

      Talk about making an effort to promote good Governance

  3. That picture does speak volumes, thanks for sharing this insight.

    Our country is indeed bleeding !!!!😌😌

  5. Thanks Alex for the always keeping us uptodate and sharing your thoughts towards developing our country Uganda,I don’t why you are bringing this issue during the time when the country is swearing in the new legislators, But to my own view I think the whole issue starts in parliament, the quality of legislator we take to parliament and the number. You know what too many cooks can do…,

    The amount of money we spend on those legislators for only vehicles is too much, am not saying their prevelages should be removed but am saying at least the legislators were less. The country would not spend much on them and the productivity would be high as well.
