What to remember Abiriga for!
He was remembered for a number of things. In parliament, he was nick-named ”Yellow boy” because of the yellow colours he used to put on wherever he traveled. He was once beaten by his fellow member of parliament, Hon. Atiku. He was an NRM party designer and he had too much love for his party. He was so supportive for the removal of the presidential age limit. Recently, he was found urinating on road and the news was all over media.
