Commander in Chief of all armed forces Gen. Yoweri Kaguta Museveni earlier this week came out to say that he does not need any one’s help to survive because no one helped him to be where he is today.

“I don’t need anyone to lean on because no one helped me to be what I am today,” stated Museveni while presiding over a cabinet function at Kololo independence grounds. “When I was fighting, I did it out of personal efforts. Nobody helped me,” he added.
Gen Museveni was advising arts teachers to find their own means to make money instead of pressurizing government to increase their salaries yet there is no money for that.
“I fought on my own, dug my own path to be what I am today . I dont lean on any one because no one helped me to be what I am now,” he said. “When we went to the bush, it was out of personal efforts that we fought and won. We were on our own,” he added.
Gen Museveni also reminded the teachers that he is a student and teacher of history and literature but a country rides on science to develop with arts being secondary.
He therefore openly told them that he does not have the money to increase their salaries hence advising them to look for alternatives to widen their income base.
