President Museveni speaks to Bukonzo West MP Atkins Godfrey Katusabe as minister of state for health Sarah Opendi looks on.

In short
Museveni argued that growing of cotton should be left to people who own huge chunks of land like 100 acres while those that have up to five acres should adopt a four-acre development strategy. Under the four-acre development strategy, Museveni says a farmer should plant one acre of food crops, plant another acre of fruits, one other acre of coffee and finally one for pasture and animal husbandry.
