Rt. Hon. Prime Minister Robinah Nabbanja personally arrived in Iganga District to hand over the heifers to the eager residents. The atmosphere was filled with hope and anticipation as she addressed the crowd, emphasizing the government’s commitment to supporting farmers and providing agricultural inputs for wealth creation.

The Prime Minister highlighted that dairy farming is one of the strategic enterprises targeted by the government because it provides not only household food security but also a steady daily income. She encouraged the recipients to make the most of this opportunity to improve their livelihoods and contribute to the broader goal of poverty alleviation in the region.

The residents of Busoga received the heifers with gratitude and a renewed sense of determination. Many expressed optimism that this initiative would significantly enhance their economic stability and overall quality of life.
