The National Unity Platform-NUP president, Robert Kyagulanyi
alias Bobi Wine, has challenged all his party-sponsored politicians to serve the
interests of their electorates, rather than seeking short term selfish gains.
While addressing mourners at the sendoff of their party member,
Dennis Waiswa in Namwendwa trading center, in Kamuli district on Monday,
Kyagulanyi stresses that NUP leaders were solely elected following the
electorates’ desire to have visionary leadership and successful individuals at
all levels should serve the interests of the wider population.
Waiswa, alongside Yakubu Kiggundu succumbed to accident
wounds in Kumi district on Saturday en-route to Omoro county, where they were expected to campaign for their parliamentary candidate ahead of Thursday’s by-election.
Kyagulanyi insists that service delivery is a major pillar
within the NUP setup, therefore, leaders ought to exhibit the virtues of servanthood to their communities and it is their sole responsibility to tirelessly devise
means of effectively representing the interests of the people without fail.
Kyagulanyi notes that, their party will not be held liable for the
voters’ negative reaction towards leaders who have deliberately failed to serve them during their tenure in

Cue out…as an individual,”//
Kyagulanyi further tasked leaders to embrace unity as a
means of consolidating the party’s grass root support, claiming that some
state sponsored agents take advantage of the prevailing misunderstandings to
divert them from agitating for the country’s political transformation.

Meanwhile, NUP’s spokesperson, Joel Ssenyonyi stresses that leaders set the trend of fighting all forms of social evils like corruption within
communities, an act which enlightens members of the general public to be
watchful about the quality of politicians elected to represent their interests at all levels.
