Mbarara — President Museveni has said for the country to shed off backwardness, a big section of Ugandans need to move to urban areas. Addressing more than 350 members of Urban Authorities Association of Uganda (UAAU) at Ntare School in Mbarara on Monday, Mr Museveni said many people live in rural areas wandering about without engaging in any gainful work.
He added that developed countries such as the US and UK have very few people in agriculture and majority in the service sector.
