Appoint veterans as deputy RDCs

By Samuel Mweru

One would get disturbed by the statistics presented by the President on the effectiveness of UPDF/veterans in distributing seedlings and curse the Naads secretariat for the alleged incompetence. Shs9 billion within nine months saw about 15 million seedlings and 1, 412 tonnes of maize and beans seeds distributed.

But rather than use the UPDF to distribute the seedlings, I would propose that instead the President appoints them as deputy RDCs in all districts since this will enable them supervise government programmes, including schools and hospitals.
