The aspirant for Mawogola North Parliamentary seat, Ms Sharsi Kutesa Musherure, has said time has come for seasoned politicians to give way for the youth to take over the leadership of the country.
While meeting civil, religious, political, youth and opinion leaders in Sembabule district on Friday, Ms Musherure, who is the daughter of Foreign Affairs minister Sam Kutesa, said the old politicians have done their part.
“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 said.
“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 added.
Recently, Mr Kutesa announced that he was leaving active politics and endorsed Ms Musherure for the role.
“I am here to fight my father. I have his blessing and because he is a sensible man, he will take the criticism wholeheartedly,” she said.
Ms Musherure urged the residents to support her, 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.
