A section of Lugari residents have taken to social media to call out Lugari MP Nabii Nabwera for engaging in “petty” activities instead of dealing with pressing issues.
Recently, the MP reportedly sponsored the training of boda boda riders, and some residents feel he should focus the energy and resources on serious matters, such as building them good roads.
“Even a 12-year-old can ride a motorbike,” one resident opined.
The residents were reacting to social media posts by bloggers from the MP’s team indicating that he had sponsored the registration and training of 120 motorbike riders, 20 each from the six wards in the constituency.
“There are more (pressing) issues to be tackled in Lugari instead of wasting resources. Which network when our roads are in limbo?” Joram Nyongesa commented on one of the posts on Facebook.
The report by the MP’s bloggers indicates that the training, which took place at the Goebay Training Institute, will run for five years and aims to empower them with essential skills.
“A good initiative, Omwami Nabii; the participants were very happy and remained focused,” Clement Bwoyi expressed excitement about the program on Facebook.
