Why we moved the show
Due to the upcoming Local Council (LC1) polls set by the electoral commission, Source of the Nile National Agricultural show organised by Uganda National Farmers Federation (UNFFE) held at Jinja show ground has been postponed to 13 upto 22 July 2018.
According to Grace Musimami, National publicity Secretary at UNFFE noted that the dates were postponed because government set the dates for the LC 1 polls on 10 July.
“We did not want to interfere with government programmes because National farmers have to actively get involved in the national programs. They have to vote their leaders,” Musimami said.
Initially, the show was scheduled to take place from 6th-15 July 2018 under the theme dubbed: “Fostering Agricultural Value chains Innovation for Farmer led Food security, Household income and job creation”. He added that unlike the previous shows; expect to have lots of trainings, learning platforms and school debates; all geared towards planning and the development of agriculture.
Hon. Victoria Ssekitooleko, the show board chair noted that the show sets a platform for displaying and identifying innovation made by local and foreign companies through improving technologies for better production, marketing and poverty eradication.
She said the major focus will be on how to manage the challenges of climate change bearing in mind how drought has divested agriculture over the last years.
The national agricultural show is the leading exhibition in Uganda combining both Agriculture and trade sectors. It started way back in 1993 near the source of the Nile in Jinja will also be celebrating its silver jubilee (25 years).
