Grassroots politics seems to be a thing right now and Ugandan President, Yoweri Kaguta Museveni, wouldn’t stand being left out.
Museveni was pictured fetching water, and riding on a bicycle at Kawumu, Luweero District in the early hours of Monday, October 31, 2016.
He took to Facebook to share the photos while revealing that his action was actually a stunt to create awareness for his ‘Operation Wealth Creation’ agenda of drip irrigation for crops.
Museveni wrote: “Today is Day Three of my Operation Wealth Creation drive in Luweero.
“This morning, I fetched water on my bicycle to demonstrate drip irrigation for coffee and bananas that I have planted on the 24 acres of land recently acquired by government in Kawumu Village, Luweero District.
“I will continue with my door-to-door mobilisation and sensitization on Operation Wealth Creation.”
Recall that sometime in the past, some Ghanaian politicians took to the streets to do menial jobs prior to the elections.
This is no news with politicians in Nigeria as they also stoop so low during campaigns to the extent of eating corns on the streets, frying ‘akara’ and doing so many other menial jobs solely to buy the hearts of the masses and earn their votes.
