In a letter written to their area MP, the group reminded their area MP that when he was looking for votes he promised to fully address their issues such as education, health, employment (youth) among others.

“You promised us as you were contesting to represent people of Kawempe South. We are here to remind you after a year in Parliament we haven’t seen any of those things. Particularly voters are in tears and are angry due to the high prices of commodities. We need your voice on the floor of parliament,” the letter read in part.
