MEMBER of Parliament for Rubaga South Constituency, Aloysius Talton Gold Mukasa was saddened by the death of Umar Lweere, a top National Unity Platform mobilizer in Lubaga who passed on yesterday after a short time illness.
The late Umar Lweere has been serving on Local Council One (LC1) Bulwa village, Lubaga Parish in Rubaga South constituency as the village Secretary for Defence.
At the burial function in Bulenga-Kikaaya, Wakiso district, Hon. Mukasa said people like Umar Lweere who stand for the truth and good governance in the country should be given a decent send-off because they choose not to betray their country.
As opposition NUP Party, MP Mukasa said they will dearly miss Lweere because he has been very fundamental in preaching the gospel of democracy and his efforts during the last General elections where the party banked on him to mobilise for its candidates in Lubaga South.
“On behalf of National Unity Platform, I want to salute my brother Umar Lweere for loving his country and for being a great NUP mobilizer. His death has been untimely, gone at a time we badly needed his immense contribution towards liberation of this country. We shall miss you Umar.” Said MP Mukasa.
On this note, Hon. Mukasa pledged to pay school fees for the late Lweere’s children sending a clear message to those in the struggle that their efforts will never be in vain!
MP Mukasa who was in company of wife Lillian, contributed money in cash to help in burial arrangements.
In attendence were; Councillor Ronald Mutumba, Ssemuli Daniel, chairman Buwembo Yusuf, Ssegirinya John Baptist and other leaders.
A down to earth Rubaga South MP, Aloysius Mukasa shocked mourners when he took part in digging the grave of a fallen comrade.
Meanwhile, on Thursday, hundreds of Rubaga South People gathered in Busega to receive maize seeds from their area Member of Parliament Hon. Aloysius Mukasa ahead of a rainy season.
Function took place at Our Lady of Mount Carmel Catholic Church in Busega.
This was the second time MP Mukasa was giving out maize seeds to his constituents, the first one was last year in Kitebi. Also click to read this story: ACTIONS NOW: MP MUKASA DELIVERS 3000 KGS OF MAIZE SEEDS TO LUBAGA SOUTH PEOPLE, SUCCESSFULLY BLOCKS RAILWAY’S LAND EVICTIONS
Hon. Mukasa told Lubaga people how other Mps from uncountry wanted him to give away these seeds he lobbied from Parliament since his constituency is in Kampala where there are no gardens.
“I told them off how my people also have villages where they come from, their ancestral homes. And can use that land for planting maize. I am happy that you have gathered here in big numbers to receive the seeds. Go and plant them ahead of the season.” MP Mukasa told his constituents.
Area councilor Asia Nagudi said, “Great thanks to our Honorable MP Mukasa Aloysius. We appreciate your services, I also thank all leaders who were involved. To some of fellow leaders who like useless fights, i Quote from Mother Tereza, ‘If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other’. Intrigue and fighting each other will never bring peace amongst us.”
Nagudi did not name those leaders her message targeted. However political analysts say, this messages served better to other area councilors who skipped this function.
One Ssalongo Sam posted on a Lubaga WhatsApp group and said, “For years i have been in Lubaga, this is my first time i have seen an MP who gives geberously to his constituents and lobbies for his people. Others have been feeding us on words. Hon. Mukasa gives Lubaga people free clean water every week, and bow he has lobbied for us maize seeds. We will never think about substituting such a leader. Continue serving us our beloved MP, we appreciate.”
He was accompanied by councilors who included;; Kigozi Rose Nalubwama, Ronald Mutumba, Nakiyingi Dorothy, Damba Sunday, Isiko Jamil, Nanyange Leah, Nasozi Sylvia, Nagudi Asia, Kyambade Fred(Munyoro), Luyinda Moses, Mpungu Muluta, Nalubwama Ester, Najjengo Betty, Mukasa George Norman and NUP Lubaga leaders headed by Yusuf Buwembo and Ssegirinya John Baptist.
