KAMPALA – Kakuuto constituency legislator in the 11th parliament, Geoffrey Lutaaya has donated a second ambulance to his voters in the space of just months.
The singer-turned-politician donated a second ambulance to the people of his constituency to aid them in the transportation of patients to hospitals to receive treatment.
Geoffrey Lutaaya’s brand-new fully equipped ambulance is his second major contribution to his constituency as he prepares to do more great things for his people.
The update about his donation was disclosed by his wife Irene Namatovu through her Instagram account where she shared a video while cleaning the ambulance.
Further reports reveal that the Da Nu Eagles boss Lutaaya is looking forward to emulating Kawempe North MP Hon. Muhammed Ssegirinya’s acts of lifting the health status of people in his constituency.
National Unity Platform legislator Geoffrey Lutaaya also made his maiden speech at the floor of parliament yesterday (August 4, 2021) to the amusement of many different people on social media.
Lutaaya who was articulate while fronting some of the major areas that are in a dire situation in the constituency to the floor of parliament made people deem him fit as the best candidate for the slot.
The National Unity Platform legislator explained to parliament how the road in the constituency has claimed lives of two of his voters who were making their way to hospital to give birth.
He called upon the deputy speaker who was chairing the session to prioritize the matter since it has been around for some long time.
Lutaaya’s maiden speech excited different people on social media with many of them rating his speech as the best for a newbie in the August house.
The artist cum-musician who is also a legend in band music chose to join active politics after and shot for a parliamentary seat in his first attempt which he overwhelmingly won.
Last year, Lutaaya assured his music fans that he is not about to give up on the mic because he was voted in parliament.
“Music is my job and passion. Politics is just a medium for me to serve. I will serve until my people decide I can’t do it anymore. I can cease to be a politician but I won’t expire as an artist,” he shared.
The music industry faced massive political intrusion as many Ugandan artistes joined active politics and stood for various political positions.
This was brought about by the confidence that National Unity Platform Principal Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu alias Bobi Wine instilled in these entertainers.
With time, many of them started eyeing several political positions in the January 2021 general elections. Some won and others lost but the mix of politics and music stayed in place.
