THE First Lady, Janet Museveni, yesterday urged Ugandans not to be power-hungry if they are to elect good leaders who can deliver.
She was closing a two-day annual general meeting for the Uganda Women's Effort to Save Orphans (UWESO) at the Kampala Institute, formerly Prisons Mess on Buganda Road. Mrs. Museveni is a founder member and the Patron of UWESO.
She said Ugandans usually fight during elections because they are power-hungry and expect to get benefits rather than serve the electorate.
"I always enjoy watching UWESO elections.
Uganda should take a lead from UWESO. I believe they elect office bearers for their worth and what they are going to do because it is voluntary," Mrs. Museveni said.
New Office bearers to serve a two-year term were elected. They included Marcella Mukasa as Chairperson replacing Dr. Maggie Kigozi who returned as Vice-chairperson.
Others are Dominic Baru, Peggy Kagondoki and Rose Tumusiime as general secretary, treasurer and publicity secretary respectively.
