Museveni made the remarks yesterday Sunday while delivering his speech during the 30th Heroes Day commemorations held at Kasanje War Memorial Grounds in Wakiso district.
He noted that the new program is set to be unveiled during the national budget reading session on June 13. Museveni explained that although there are many several other poverty alleviation programs running across the country, the new program will finally offer the magic bullet to get out of poverty.
Since when the National Resistance Movement (NRM) assumed power in 1986, the government has experimented and implemented a number of poverty alleviation programs including the rural farmers scheme, modernization of agriculture, poverty eradication plan and prosperity for all.
Other programs designed along the same goal include Youth Livelihood Program, Parish Community Associations, Women Empowerment Fund, and Operation Wealth Creation.
During the Heroes Day function, Hajji Idris Ssedunga, the chairperson of the Uganda War Veterans Association, informed the president about the ever-increasing land evictions.
Hajji Ssedunda said that the vice has also led to the destruction of the Kiringa-Ente war memorial site. In his response, Museveni challenged tenants across the country to resist all forms of forced land evictions and land sales.
