Stop crybaby syndrome, CAO tells Kamuli youth


KAMULI- Youth in Kamuli District have been advised to stop bickering and the crybaby syndrome, look to the positive side of life and harness their full potential.

Kamuli Chief Administrative Officer (CAO) Felix Cuthbert Esoku advised the youth to identify their priorities, developmental allies and build a communication network that will help them make productive use of their energy, skills and knowledge instead of engaging in squabbles over leadership.

‘Self belief’
“You need to come to reality of life, believe in yourselves and complain from an informed point of view. Otherwise, you will continue to be used for wrong purposes and dumped,” Mr Esoku warned.

The CAO made the remarks while addressing the district youth council at the Youth Centre, to resolve the leadership impasse that has seen two government projects stall.

He pointed out that a Shs13 million hatchery and a 20-acre piece of land worth Shs52 million remained idle and would turn into white elephants because of leadership wrangles.

He told them to draw a business plan for the hatchery project and the productive use of their land to generate income for the benefit of members.

On the leadership, the CAO cautioned them against using illegal means to topple their leaders.

The district youth chairperson, Mr Joel Kibikyo, clarified that the hatchery President Museveni donated to youth three years ago is lying at the Works Stores awaiting parent stock and operational funds so that it doesn’t start and stop midway.

After the CAO’s mediation and clarification, the youth disowned the meeting and minutes that had purportedly resolved to kick the chairperson out of office.
