In their messages, Hon. Kirunda advised youths to go slow in Politics though encouraged them to participate in Leadership at an early age and that the old guys will give in once their time comes. On his part, Honourable #Bobiwine reminded hon. Kirunda that Political space cannot be given but fought for and so not ready to kneel before Museveni in his quest to liberate Uganda. He thus thanked him for embracing the function and called it a sign of co-existance of multiple ideas peacefully.
