Desist from Political propagandas- Tea Nursery bed operators warned


NEWS- Byaruhanga Frank the Western Uganda regional chairperson of Tea Nursery bed operators has cautioned Tea Nursery bed operators to stay away from politicians infiltrating their business which cause havoc.

Addressing nursery bed operators from greater Mbarara and southwestern regions, Byaruhanga revealed that there are some self-seekers using the current issues affecting the operators to confuse the players in this business.

The purpose of the meeting was to give members the report on the progress of the assignments given to the leaders of this industry on the recovery of their money and get feedback from the members who never received their compensation from NAADS.

Frank expressed his dismay on members who have opted to seek public attention accusing leaders of swindling their money and revealing that these are baseless claims because as the members they agreed to contribute 30% of the money owed from NAADS to Pathways Advocates as legal fees to facilitate the case into courts of law.

Speaking at the same event, Twine Deo the chairperson of LC5 Buhweju district asked farmers to be calm and the legal team to take its course. He said that money hates noise and asked members to sit from their respective districts, document everything, and submit it to the relevant offices.

The LC 5 Sheema district Jemimah Buhanda commended the Tea Nursery bed leaders for the zeal exhibited in exploiting all legal procedures to claim their money.

Col (Rtd) Sam Karogo, Operation Wealth Creation coordinator Mbarara district, promised to support the farmers in claiming their money. He tasked the members to appreciate the 40% compensation as an economic loss.

 A partner in Pathways Advocates, Patrick Katabaazi Kiconco revealed that so far districts like Rukungiri have received Ugx 2.5b, Ntungamo 1Bn, Mitooma 7.5Bn, Rwampara 200m.

He added that the people they have met have no major issues that have been recorded, only that people are waiting for subsequent payments from NAADS. All districts in Kigezi region are to be visited this week for further clarification funds that were meant for Tea Nursery Beds operators
