President M7 calls on young scientists to collaborate with nrm for free education.

President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni addressed a group of 91 young scientists who recently completed a two-month training program at Sera Kasenyi Training School. During his speech on October 25, 2023, he emphasized the importance of education in Uganda’s social and economic transformation.
President Museveni encouraged the young scientists to join forces with the National Resistance Movement (NRM) government to combat individuals who oppose free education in government schools. He expressed his belief that education is a fundamental catalyst for transforming the country and stressed the need for unity in this endeavor.
The President also touched upon the principles of the NRM, including patriotism, Pan-Africanism, socio-economic transformation, and democracy. He highlighted the significance of these core principles in promoting prosperity among Ugandans and the need for a modern, educated society to achieve socio-economic transformation.
Furthermore, President Museveni urged the trainees to help disseminate the NRM ideology to the wider population, preventing past ideological mistakes. He also discussed the importance of regional cooperation, particularly within the East African Federation, for shared goals such as sending satellites to space.
In addition to his educational emphasis, President Museveni congratulated the trainees on their completion of the program. He extended an offer to those interested in further training within the army, specializing in various areas of science.
The Deputy Commandant of the Special Forces Command (SFC), Brig Gen. Charity Bainababo, provided insights into the trainees’ diverse backgrounds and the subjects covered during their training, including military law, political education, physical training, and Kiswahili basics. She noted that the trainees had studied several pieces of literature authored by President Museveni, which contributed to their understanding of the ideology, technology, and socio-economic transformation.
One of the trainees, Nuwe Matagaizi Amanya, expressed their appreciation for President Museveni’s revolutionary lectures, indicating that these lectures had been enlightening and inspiring. Amanya proposed the creation of a central database to make this valuable literature accessible to all citizens, subject to the President’s approval.
The event was attended by several dignitaries, including State House Comptroller Jane Barekye, the Chief Transport Officer, Eng. Sheeba Kusasira, and the Commandant of Sera Kasenyi Training School, Maj. Frank Mugume.
