It’s always good to remember your roots regardless of how important or successful you are in life. At least that is what Erias Lukwago, the Kampala city lord mayor portrayed during Eid celebrations a few days back.
The Lord Mayor spent the whole day at his village in Masaka and humbled himself to village life. Lukwago got involved in almost every activity in the village, from chopping firewood, fetching water, slaughtering animals and even cooking food at some point.
But with all that, he sounded as though he had missed doing it and was looking forward to it. “Back to the roots. It’s quite refreshing, spending Eid day at our ancestral home in Kabungo, Kalungu, Masaka as I reminisce on those childhood chores,” Lukwago posted on his Facebook page, reviving his childhood days.
The lord mayor forgot all about his city troubles when he reached the village and concentrated on house chores, leaving those at home to at least get some time off.
He set a good example to the rest of the cooperate world who only stop at taking items in the village but cannot get involved in the activities because they consider themselves wealthy.And going by the reactions on the post, many people gave him the thumps up and we say udos Lord Mayor.
