“Being an effective leader involves listening to constituents, translating their concerns into workable proposals, and building consensus to implement them which I’m sure I can still do for you my people even without any political title,”he said.
“You have taken the time to share with me your ideas, your concerns, and your aspirations, and I sincerely appreciate your willingness to discuss what really matters to you.”
He said Robert Kyagulanyi alias Bobi Wine had been an inspiration to him.
“Bobi, you are an ambassador of hope, change and revolution that’s for sure and you have proved it to us during this election period hence inspiring so many other Ugandans to engross and take part in this whole revolutionary process,”he said.
