The Full article which also reads in parts as below

.... "Oloya and his extensions in Uganda, the anti-science activist groups, are now thrown in a state of confusion because of your clear supportive position of the enactment of the National Biotechnology and Biosafety Bill into law. They thrive on spreading misinformation to the largely ignorant and gullible members of the public, including some MPs. They do not understand that it is scientific advancements that transform societies. It is the science outcomes from China, India, Korea, USA, Brazil, Europe and India that we consume on a daily basis, making our economies in Africa very weak due to hemorrhage of our currencies."

The arthor further writes that " We are comforted by the fact that with your foresighted leadership, the farmers’ will soon start benefiting from the efforts of your scientists through crop improvement after that enactment of the National Biotechnology and Biosafety Bill into law that will guide and regulate their work. Oloya the expert of everything and his anti-science allies should be ignored for a brighter future of Uganda."
