"I started the campaign in 1966. I used to tell chiefs to teach others that if anybody is taught, that person can change from darkness to light," he said.

On their concerns about the Banana wilt, President Museveni reminded them that he held seminars in all Banana growing zones in the country, attended by leaders at all levels to sensitize wanainchi on how to stem the disease.
