Lands Housing and Urban Development

The NRM has ensured operationisation of the constitutional provisions on ownership of land. The Land Amendment Act, 2010, has strengthened the protection of tenants (Bibanja holders) from evictions by land grabbers. We have also put in place land units in the Police and the Office of the President to support handling of land issues. We are also continuing to put in place measures that ensure availability of affordable decent housing all the people of Uganda.

Water and Sanitation

The NRM has increased the access to safe water from crisis levels in most parts of the country to 65%inruraland72%inurbanareas.
This has been achieved through investment in various technologies in rural areas and provision of piped water systems in various urban centres.

 

Growth and Development

Uganda has registered consistent economic progress in the last two decades averaging 6% per year.As a result,we have increased our revenue collection from a paltry sh5b in 1986 to sh9.7 trillion in 2014/15, which has enabled us to finance numerous Government projects. We have maintained macro-economic stability and contained inflation within the single-digit bracket. Building on these achievements, we will work towards increasing the size of the economy and expand our revenue base.

 

International & Regional Cooperation

We will continue to work vigorously for the deeper integration of the East African Community and co-operate with our partners in the Eastern Africa region, to guarantee our security and long-term development. We will, in the same vein, work to strengthen regional organisations such as the Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa (COMESA), the Inter-Governmental Authority on Development (IGAD), the Southern Africa Development Co-operation (SADC) and the EAC, SADC and COMESA tripartite agreement.

 

Infrastructure

In the last five years, emphasis has been put on developing infrastructure with a view to reducing the cost of production. Paved (tarmac) roads — These have increased from 3,000km to 4,000km from 2011 to 2015.
Ferry crossings — They have also increased from two to nine, which has contributed to improvement of transport to areas accessed on water. Some of the crossings are shorter detours to some areas, meaning a reduction in travel time.

 

Health

We continued with immunisation and reproductive health programmes in addition to taking health services nearer to the people. We rehabilitated several health units, including referral hospitals such as Hoima and Arua.

 

We started on rehabilitation of Mulago Hospital and constructed new NatioNal resistaNce movemeNt general hospitals, namely:

 

  1.  Kiruddu Hospital in Makindye Division

Security

The NRM has made great strides in implementing what we promised five years ago. Among them are:

 

  1.  Creating and maintaining the environment in which people have a say in national issues that directly affect them

 

  2.  Professionalising and equipping both the army and the police to deal with the modern security threats of terrorism.
