The Minister of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) and National Guidance, Frank Kagyigi Tumwebaze, has embarked on a campaign of preaching patriotism among Ugandans across the country.
We have learnt that on top of urging Ugandans to embrace technology and ICT, minister Tumwebaze is also preaching to Ugandans the gospel of loving their country and each other as citizens of the same nation.
He kicked off this campaign a few days back in Mubende district, where he toured several villages with National Resistance Movement (NRM) stalwarts like Capt. Mike Mukula among others, where they held patriotism meetings.
While commenting on his new campaign, Tumwebaze wrote thus on his social media; “I delivered a talk to leaders of Kasambya in Mubende at a seminar organised by the Patriotism Secretariat, Office of the President.
We discussed mindset change how to think positively for personal and community development and also how to leverage the highly liberalized media space for promotion of common interest and livelihood issues.”
The spirit of patriotism amongst Ugandan was revitalized by President Yoweri Museveni, who recently met several patriotism clubs at a massive public gathering that was held at Kololo independence grounds.
