Kawempe North Member of Parliament (Mp) Muhammad Ssegirinya a.k.a. Mr Update has donated a fire truck to his Constituency adding to the multitudinous donations he has made barely months into his term of office as Member of Parliament.
According to Ssegirinya, the truck has been donated by Marie Martins from the Netherlands, and it will be shipped into the country soon. “After the launch of Kawempe North bus service, Kawempe North fire brigade is next on agenda”. He stated.
Fire trucks are used to respond to fires, accidents and other incidents where there are risks to life and property among others.
Segirinya’s donations have been estimated to be worth billions of shillings something which has left many people questioning the source of his funds.
Ssegirinya has started a fully furnished and equipped hospital with expensive medical facilities such as MRI Scan machine and an ambulance, he has donated tons of food during the 42-day lockdown instituted by the President on June 6th, he has distributed cash to his constituents, he has started projects targeted to alleviate poverty, he has donated a bus to facilitate transport in his Constituency among others.
He has attributed the donations to his lobbying skills claiming he travels to many countries in Europe for example Netherlands, Sweden and UK to lobby for donations from prospective donors.
Segirinya was elected on the National Unity Platform ticket led by Musician turned Politician Robert Kyagulanyi Sentamu alias Bobi Wine to represent Kawempe North Constituency ousting Hon. Latif Sebagala in the concluded January polls.
