President Yoweri Museveni on Wednesday unveiled his first drip irrigation harvest from Kawumu demonstration farm in Luweero District.

Museveni bought 24 acres from Kawumu village in Makulubita Sub County to demonstrate to small-scale farmers on how to maximize profits, by using a few acres of land for various activities. On the farm, he initiated several activities including zero grazing, a fruit farm with mangoes, pineapples, passion fruits and pawpaws.

The model farm also has fish farming, coffee, matooke, mushrooms and vegetables.
Brian Luwaga was in Kawumu and now brings you pictures from the farm.

About the author

Brian Luwaga
Since Brian Luwaga joined Uganda Radio Network in 2011, he is still amazed how, "URN is a place that gives journalists a chance to enhance their skills . It gives a journalist an opportunity to adopt and master various aspects of journalism that include radio broadcast, social media, photography and television production."

A practicing journalist since 2009, first with Star FM, Luwaga has always been keen to write about the concerns of the "common person." Based for much of his career in Luweero, Luwaga takes it as a compliment if politicians complain that his reporting is too harsh.

In his journalism, Luwaga likes to merge the past with the present. He believes you cannot understand what is happening now, if you do not have a grounding in the past. Brian Luwaga is the Luweero URN bureau chief. Nakasongola, Nakaseke, Mityana, Mubende and Wakiso districts fall under his docket.

Luwaga is interested in humanitarian work and is a keen Rotarian.
