National Unity Platform President Robert Kyagulanyi has urged newly elected leaders not to betray the ordinary person who has elevated them to their positions of responsibility.
Kyagulanyi made the remarks while celebrating his 39th birthday with a thanksgiving mass held at his home in Magere in Wakiso district.
Anthony Musaala, one of the clerics who attended urged the elected members of parliament, councillors among others never to forget who their founding father is and their role.
“Never give up on your major role, which is to fight for the people that voted for you,” said Fr Musaala.
His wife Babie Itungo Kyagulanyi congratulated Bobi Wine upon turning 39 years.
“Every day I get to learn something new from my husband and this is what I find special about him,” she said.
Itungo also lauded the NUP supporters, elected MPs for their tireless efforts towards the success of his husband.
Bobi Wine’s message:

My deepest appreciation goes to all of you friends and family who joined us in mass today as we prayed for our comrades who are in prison for no reason, all those who are kidnapped and still missing and those who have been victims of state inspired violence, abductions and murder.
I dedicate the next phase of my life to fighting and ending such injustice. Aluta continua…
