Govt set aside Shs 90b for Veterans in Uganda

While addressing a cross section of NRM leaders from the region at Kumi district headquarters yesterday, Museveni said that government had set a side Shs 90b this year to pay 11000 veterans.

He explained that the government had settled most of claims, from 150000 to 68000, although 43000 could not be traced, leaving about 25000 to settle which we will be done next year.

Museveni noted that the plan is to clear arrears of the ex-fighters in two years because they could not be settled at once due to conflicting loyalties with other developments like electricity and roads.
