Uganda: Museveni Pays Mbarara Schools

Kampala — PRESIDENT Yoweri Museveni has paid sh75m as compensation to three schools in Mbarara district whose trucks and tractors he used in the liberation war.

The money was delivered by the state minister for urban development, Urban Tibamanya, to the schools in Kashari county on Thursday. He said each school would get sh25m.

Rutooma SS lost a truck, while Rwensinga High School and Rwentanga Farm School lost tractors.

Museveni led a 27-man rebel group in 1980 to fight Dr. Milton Obote's government and finally took power in 1986.
