Ugandan President, Yoweri Museveni has left his Presidential Villa and returned to his farm where he will spend the next one week promoting agriculture and overseeing government projects across the district of Lowero. The presidential motorcade has been replaced by a bicycle, which he will be using to fetch water for his crops.
According to a spokesperson on the trip, the president has already been showing locals how to plant bananas and coffee, using plastic bottles to irrigate the land.
"With changing weather patterns and unreliable rainfall, farmers must do more irrigation. Like I demonstrated, it should not be expensive," he said in another post.
"Leaders shouldn't just stop at distributing seeds but also supervise. Agriculture officials should offer technical assistance to farmers," he also tweeted.
