Adjumani, Northern Uganda: Uganda’s Minister of Local Government Hon. Raphael Magezi has today physically demonstrated proper digging ways to farmers of Dzaipi Sub County in Adjumani District.
Hon. Magezi visited the district on invitation of Action Against Hunger (ACF) USA-Uganda Mission which is implementing the “Right to Grow” project on behalf of the Ministry in Adjumani District.
Minister did this after meeting locals who had communally opened land awaiting the rainy season to plant cassava stems, maize and other crops.
He implored them to continuously join hands to ease the work burden.
“What i have seen here is so encouraging, shows hard work and cooperation amongst you, i will therefore talk to Ministry of Agriculture to give me tractors which i will give you to help you since you have a large piece of land”. Said Hon. Magezi.
He commissioned a tricycle donated by Action Against Hunger (ACF) USA-Uganda Mission to farmers to be helping them in transportation of their harvest.
