In politics every person is important. Makerere University councilor Bernard Luyiga is now full of smiles after the president general of the Democratic Party (DP) Norbert Mao appointed his party’s special envoy in charge of universities.
Luyiga formerly a member of DP made an alliance with NRM councilors at Kampala City Council in a bid to become the deputy Lord Mayor. His actions politically shifted him from DP to NRM, at least in the eyes of political analysts.
Luyiga even went ahead and acquired police body guards. The people who may have queries’ on this issue (of gun) should ask Kampala Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago. But Luyiga’s critics have been baffled after Mao appointed him the DP envoy in charge of Universities. Luyiga we hear has already accepted the appointment. Luyiga however denies reports that he crossed to NRM. He says it is only Lukwago’s questionable leadership in Kampala what makes him (Luyiga) to support NRM plots against Lukwago.
