Kampala Lord Mayor-elect Erias Lukwago questions why President-elect Yoweri Museveni was using Luyaaye during his campaigns instead of mentoring the youths.

In a video shared by Bebe Cool on 10th January, Museveni speaks a few jargons which are mainly used by youths in the ghetto.

Museveni used a few words like ‘ba chali bange…ba blood bange‘ to mean ‘my people’. Locally, the dialect is termed as Luyaaye or the ghetto language.

According to the Lord Mayor-elect, the president shouldn’t be trying to speak Luyaaye because there is no way it mentors the youths.

The other day, I saw Museveni with Bebe Cool, trying to speak (Ruyaaye). I saw it and said, “What has become of my country? An 80-year-old trying to speak like a youth instead of mentoring the youth?
