The Minister for Education and Sports, also First lady Janet Kataha Museveni has been applauded for the job well done in transforming the Ministry.
President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni applauded his wife on Monday while flagging off athletes who are going to represent Uganda in the commonwealth games in Birmingham, UK.
While referring to his wife as “Maama”, Museveni noted that as a minister, Janet has displayed great leadership skills using teamwork to solve the different challenges that the ministry has been facing for years and posting results nearly in every sub-sector.
The president added that several other ministries and organs of government are in chaos just because those in leadership lack skills of teamwork and think that they are the only ones who can solve every problem.
Meanwhile, Mrs Museveni attributed the said success in her ministry to the country's stability and public finance. She cited, as an example, how spending on sports increased from Shillings 6.8 billion in the 2015–2016 fiscal year to Shillings 27.67 billion in the 2020–2021 fiscal year, resulting in 180 medals won across a variety of sports.
