In what appears as making his will public, the National Resistance Movement party boss declared that anyone who would be interested in buying his land after his death, must purchase it as a whole adding that his children should not make any attempt of subdividing the parcel.
Museveni 78, revealed that he has put it in his will that if his children will not want to continue with his farming culture anymore, they will be free to sell his land to another Ugandan who must buy it as a whole.
Museveni noted that he can never dictate to his children on what they should do or how they should live as it is upon them to make such decisions.
"Because if my children want to live in town or want to go and watch football in Qatar they can do so, that’s their problem. Let them sell the piece of land to another Ugandan who can use it for production,” President Museveni declared While addressing residents of Kasese.
He disclosed this as he discouraged residents of Kesese against land subdivision arguing that such move makes land lose its resourcefulness.
“When you have a whole leg of cow you cannot eat it alone. So you cut it in portions that can fit in your hand. But sometimes they cut it so small and its difficult to eat. So if you fragment land and it is that small then you lose its value.” The president stated.
