My special call to Kampala city has always been to make you people smile trying to make you forget the suffering around us while educating and arming you for the best future.
In a sure way of changing people’s lives for the best, I am offering myself for LORDMAYORSHIP as my final attempt to bring you real happiness and joy which I hope to attain by cleaning the mess around us, and by creating an integrated self-sustaining city. With well-lit streets, public toilets, where plans will be devised to make it possible for all to work in the city without being chased like criminals.
This is our City, let us enjoy it.
Happiness is my goal
New faces and new ideas for a new Kampala. Kisoboka.
FOR GOD AND A HAPPY CITY.
