“You should all understand that MPs are not elected to construct roads or build trenches but rather pass resolutions that enable such services to be offered by government which I have effectively done in my last terms,” he asserted.

“I am on record for having fought and stopped the spray of the deadly DDT that would affect all Ugandans.”

Lukyamuzi observed that he is among a few MPs that have fought to ensure that the rule of law is restored in the Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) through the restoration of the office of the Lord Mayor.

“I have fought to block the new bill aimed at infringing on the rights of the people of Kampala to elect a Lord Mayor of their choice as opposed to being elected by councilors.”

On the other hand, Lukyamuzi called upon President Museveni to stop intimidating Ugandans with a purported possible military Coup. “President Museveni must understand that if he managed to cause a fundamental change, other Ugandans like me can also bring another change.”

On this he vowed to continue canvassing support for his presidential candidate and FDC flag bearer, Dr. Kiiza Besigye in the pursuit of a fundamental change.
