LIRA. President Museveni has cautioned people against indulging themselves in the culture of begging, saying the practice causes absolute poverty.
The President said Good Samaritans are sustaining a begging culture and that many people asking for money are “not working hard to get out of poverty, but are choosing to beg”.
Mr Museveni made the remarks last Thursday while launching the Ministry of Lands zonal office in Lira District.
“People should get out of poverty through labour but not begging. You cannot get out of chan (poverty) through kwayo (begging),” he said.
