State House Comptroller meets with Katikkiro Mayiga to discuss poverty alleviation

The State House Comptroller, Ms Jane Barekye on Friday met with Charles Peter Mayiga, the Katikkiro of Buganda Kingdom, at Bulange-Mengo to discuss ways to alleviate poverty among youth living in urban, peri-urban areas, as well as districts within Buganda and Uganda as a whole.

During their discussions, Ms Barekye confirmed the State House’s commitment to collaborate with the Kingdom to promote development in Uganda. President Yoweri Museveni has already introduced a variety of programs, such as the Industrial Zonal Hub program and the Skilling the Girl and Boy Child Initiative, which have improved the lives of many young people across the kingdom and the country.

Ms Barekye urged the Kingdom to work alongside the government to raise awareness of these programs, particularly among the youth. She also stated that State House and Buganda have a strong working relationship and that they would continue to collaborate for the betterment of Uganda.

The Katikkiro welcomed Ms. Barekye to Bulange Mengo, and pledged the Kingdom’s commitment to work with the State House to enhance the living standards of Buganda’s people. He praised President Museveni for his swift interventions to combat poverty and generate employment opportunities for the youth and emphasized the importance of State House’s skilling programs in uplifting young people’s livelihoods.

Mr Mayiga also briefed Ms Barekye on the Kingdom’s programs to initiate social and economic change, such as the coffee promotion campaign ‘EMMWANYI TERIMBA,’ aimed at mobilizing the Kingdom’s subjects to cultivate more coffee. Additionally, he shared information about the Kingdom’s plan to revive the savings culture and cooperative movement by creating saving schemes such as Powesa and Essuubiryo Zambogo SACCO.

Ultimately, both parties agreed to work together to combat poverty in Uganda.
