KAMPALA – Kawempe North Member of Parliament – elect, Muhammad Ssegirinya commonly known as Mr Updates has assured his followers that he will now be updating live from the chambers of parliament for his followers.
Ssegirinya who came on the National Unity Platform ticket trounced the incumbent MP Latif Ssebagala and four others in the Thursday January 14th polls to enter the 11th Parliament.
“Mr Updates is now going to be reporting live from Parliament. If I see a legislator trying to misrepresent his people or doing something contrary, I will just be going live to show my followers what is exactly happening so they can know how to deal with him or her,” he said.
Speaking in an interview on a local entertainment TV show, Ssegirinya said that he knows that what his supporters expect from him is service delivery and he will not disappoint them.
“Ask yourself, why do you think they left all the other contestants and voted for me? They saw hope and strength to move them forward from the mess that is Kawempe North,” Ssegirinya said.
Ssegirinya added that he will not accept the money given to legislators to buy cars but he will share it among his supporters, inject it in the Ssegirinya Muhammad Foundation and continue driving his old car.
“I will not take it to buy a car, but I will receive it and share with the needy. I want that money to help them. I want a portion of that money to help the children of our friends who died in the struggle and another portion will go to SACCOs,” Ssegirinya said.
Ssegirinya further shared that unlike other legislators, he will use an open door policy to ensure that all people who want to see him are allowed access.
“I told my wife to cook a lot of food because all the people of Kawempe are welcome to eat with us,” Ssegirinya added.
Seggirinya introduced himself to the political scene in Uganda by making phone calls on radio political talk shows, attracting attention of talk show hosts and listeners alike with his flagship name ‘Eddoboozi lye Kyebando’
