Sugarcane farmers in Busoga region have vowed not to vote for the ruling NRM party in case President Museveni doesn’t fulfill his pledge he made of constructing a sugar cane factory for farmers.
While speaking to the Chairman of Sugarcane farmers in Busoga region Isa Budugo, He says the President assured them the sugar factory will be established.
This pledge was announced during the President’s regional tour but non of the members of parliament from Busoga region have raised their concern to the Parliament despite other regions were given factories for instance Teso was given a fruit proccesing factory.
He further adds that as now the factories here in Busoga are not managing to consume all canes due to the availability since farmers were encouraged to grow cane and the capacity exceeded the maximum requirement.
