A milk cooler President Museveni donated to a youth group in Kanyanya, Kawempe division, was reportedly taken away hours after he had left.
Museveni donated the cooler and other equipment to the youth on September 14 during his tour of various city suburbs aimed at encouraging the youth to engage in income generating projects.
One of the youth told Salt TV, a local television, that the cooler was taken away by unknown people.
“Immediately the president left, the cooler which had been mounted on a lorry, also disappeared. That is why our proposal was to involve LCs in this venture but they also don’t know,” the youth said.
One of the youth said that many of the people who received the equipment are not known in the area.
“We just saw them for the first time and we were surprised when they introduced them to us as our leaders,” she said.
Other youths said that some people had began soliciting money from unsuspecting youth to help them get a loan from a Sacco to which Museveni donated Shs 50 million.
Emmanuel Sserunjoji, the mayor of Kawempe said that the president was surrounded by dishonest people who want to reap him off.
