President Yoweri Museveni has commended the people of Omoro County in particular and Acholi Sub-Region in general, for embarking on massive production of coffee, a cash crop whose growing was, in the colonial days, a preserve of only some regions in Uganda, denying others immense wealth.
The President was launching the growing of coffee and cassava at a colorful ceremony organized by the Deputy Speaker of Parliament, the Rt. Hon. Jacob Oulanya at Lalogi Sub-County headquarters in Omoro County, Gulu district. Mr. Museveni launched the coffee production by handing over seedlings to farmers from Idobo Parish in Lalogi Sub-County.
