Arguments that the newly- elected MP for Kyadondo East, Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu, does not deserve to be in Parliament with claims that he is a ganja-smoker, do not hold any substance. I witnessed two older women talking about his election, alleging that, on top of being a drug addict, he has characteristics of bayaye .
I am of the view that our past does not reflect our present. It is` not good to judge people with what they have done in past. Maybe Bobi Wine’s` childhood was not that favourable, and he ended up in ghetto, but he has managed to prosper from nobody to somebody.
Besides, he is a responsible man with a family, several businesses and a good education background, currently pursuing a second Bachelor’s degree. In any case, he is` the choice of people in Kyadondo East, so it should be respected.
I urge Ugandans to stop criticizing for the sake, since leadership comes from God. I only hope Ssentamu will work closely with other leaders to promote Kyadondo and Uganda.
