Through his campaigns which saw him elected area MP, Mukasa said Lubaga South lacks good healthy facilities, youth especially mechanics are not supported, Women groups need to be facilitated to fight poverty.
As evidence that he has not joined politics to get money, years ago, Mukasa single handedly constructed a tamacked road in St. Anne Zone near Faith Arena Church which was in a sorry state . It costed him around UGX 500Millions. This road was being used by law breakers at night to steal bodabodas, rape women at night and kill people. The Zone council sat and resolved to name this road after Aloysius Mukasa as a reward for his generous heart.
While meeting local and youth leaders in Mutundwe during campaigns, Mukasa said, “Lubaga South needs a fresh substitute who will speak in Parliament and act. I am a performer. We are tired of floods in Lubaga every time it rains, floods destroy our homes and sweep away businesses. This problem must end when I take over. We pay huge taxes why get poor service?”
Lubaga South voted him for being a down to earth leader, approachable, a true people’s servant and their own son whom they have seen grooming.
He has vowed never to be corrupted and divert from the real causes as to why he was elected.
We join thousands of Lubaga South voters to congratulate you Hon. Aloysius Mukasa.
