16:16 EAT: "Addressing constraints in transport, energy and health and education and improving service delivery, will accord Ugandans a better quality of life. I commend this budget to the people of Uganda and especially the youth, who are our beacon of hope for the future." Maria Kiwanuka ends her speech and Speaker of Parliament Rebecca Kadaga invites President Museveni to make closing remarks as the speech was made on his behalf. He accepts and in first remarks notes that he is glad Leader of Opposition in parliament Nandala Mafabi has decided to remain in the house this time. Jokes that the day before they had been unable to handle his stamina.
