President Museveni on Wednesday while launching the vision 2040 issued a warning to technocrats and the political class who he said have been hostile towards the private sector.
Museveni publicly instructed his Principal Private Secretary (PPS) to follow-up on all matters relating to entrepreneur frustration.
“It is illegal to delay, mishandle, solicit bribes or frustrate any entrepreneur and their investments in Uganda whether local or foreign. It is betrayal of our development goals,” Mr Museveni Said.
He went ahead to say ; “Uganda is unstoppable towards modernisation. The private sector is the engine of Uganda’s economy. It must be protected, encouraged and listened to. The work of any politician and technocrat is to protect business persons.”
The Vision 2040 document was drafted by the National Planning Authority (NPA).
