Plan for our population

By Bernard Muhwezi

I liked the letter in the Daily Monitor of July 15 about the challenges facing the youth in Uganda. It was spot on. Certainly, all indications are that Uganda is sitting on an active demographic volcano.
Not too long ago, President Museveni said a large population is good for the country! Surely, demographics and population studies show that this is not true. Instead, we must plan for the population. Hopefully, something will be done by the government. We need to re-examine everything from UPE, corruption, Vision 2040, etc.
