KAMPALA – Ms Sharsi Kutesa Musherure, the daughter of Foreign Affairs minister Sam Kutesa, has urged old politicians to retire and allow the youth to take the country’s leadership affairs forward.
Ms Musherure, who was recently endorsed by her father to contest for Mawogola North Parliamentary seat come 2021, told a gathering of political and religious leaders in in Sembabule district on Friday that the youth should be allowed a chance by the old guard.
“Different times call for different strategies, thinking and ways of doing things. The trends in our country require vigorous new people, ideas and attitudes,” she said. “The mighty and powerful have served this country wholeheartedly and we are grateful for their development. However, time has come for us the youth to play our role,” she added.
Ms Musherure, who was accompanied by State Minister for Youth and Children Affairs Florence Nakiwala Kiyingi, called on the residents to endorse her parliamentary bid, saying she is ready to bring government services to them.
“There are many government services that never reach the grassroots. I want to work with both local and national leaders to make sure we deliver services to the people. I do not have money to solve all the problems of Mawogola but with your support, I work for our people,” she said.
