The President of Uganda Yoweri Kaguta Museveni on Thursday appointed events promoter and sworn in member of the National Resistance movement Balaam Barugahara as state minister for Gender Labor and Social development in charge of youths after a cabinet reshuffle.

The newly appointed minister today underwent a vetting process at Parliament where he said he is not in Cabinet to recruit youths to the MK Project, but rather to fix the problem of unemployment among the young people in Uganda.

“I am not in Cabinet to recruit the youths for the MK Project, already the MK Project has over 21 million young people and MK or PLU as you may call it, we aren’t a political party. We are a civic organization that is aimed at patriotism, spreading love for the country. It is a very civic organization where I encourage each one of you to join so my being appointed Minister, I have come to fix and address challenges affecting young people,” said

Addressing journalists, he added that will free all political prisoners who were arrested during the 2021 elections while campaigning for the National Unity Platform.

Balaam said he will talk to president Museveni so that he could pardon them, offer them rehabilitation and provide them skills under the available government programs.
