Uganda Breweries Limited (UBL) has unveiled new ambassadors for their “Designated Driver campaign” under their responsible drinking initiative, Red Card. The campaign is aimed at reducing road accidents brought about by motorists who drive under the influence of alcohol.

The ambassadors are celebrated radio and television personalities, Flavia Tumusiime, Diana Deedan Muyira and Charles Denzel Mwiyeretsi.

Speaking at the unveiling ceremony that was held at Panamera Bar and Restaurant, Mark Ocitti the Managing Director, Uganda Breweries Limited said, “We have appointed these ambassadors to be the faces of the designated driver campaign because they appeal and communicate better with our target audience, persons between 18 and 35 years of age. They have also, in one way or another been affected by drunk driving incidences which makes them important players in the fight against drunk driving.”

UBL has been running the Red Card campaign for over 5 years to inform, sensitize and engage consumers about the dangers of alcohol misuse. The campaign has previously had ambassadors like Charles Masembe, the legendary referee and musician Irene Ntale.

“The designated driver theme that we are taking on this year is aimed at influencing behavior change and call upon people to declare themselves as designated drivers to their friends or fellow partiers after a night out. We are saying, if you are going out and enjoying yourself especially over the holidays, don’t turn your night into a nightmare. Leave the car at home and, if you can’t use public transport, designate a non-drinking driver.” Ocitti said.

According to a recent research report by Research World International Limited, previous responsible drinking campaigns have created huge awareness on responsible drinking. The research conducted among 282 people to measure the impact of the responsible drinking communication in Uganda showed that 81% percent of the respondents who said that they are aware of the Red Card campaign confirmed that the campaign messaging has brought about a positive change in their social behavior with regard to alcohol consumption. 70% of these respondents attributed the change to the “Don’t drink & drive” messaging.

Weasel has moved on regardless, recording music as one man band and doing some collabos with fellow artists like King Saha, though he still has not been completely the same person since his music partner and ‘brother’ passed.

He recently intimated to Adelle on Kiss fm Kenya that it was really hard losing Radio. He stopped hanging out in clubs for a while because he could not bare listening to the music they had made together since it brought back very many memories that hurt him.

He also regrets ignoring some of his fallen friend’s phone calls, and leaving him without communicating his whereabouts which has taught him to treasure friendship even more. Weasel also says that Radio’s death helped unite artists in Uganda.

Weasel who is currently in Kenya recording a new season of Coke studio plans to do a special tribute to Radio on the show.

Weasel added that Radio’s death unified Ugandan artistes who had been beefing.

“When Radio was alive, artistes were fighting each other. But when he died, they all tried to come together and they no longer fight because most of them realised the importance of being united. That was a positive thing that happened,” he said.

One highlight that puts a smile on his face when he remembers Radio is when they received their first payment of USh1 million after their first hit song, ‘Nakudata’.

Weasel also revealed that he will pay a tribute to Radio with other singers on Coke Studio 2019.

“It is my second time to be on Coke Studio. This time teaming up with other artistes and paying tribute to the fallen soldiers like Radio and other stars,” he said.

He is also working on a new album that has 15 songs, as well as Radio’s album, which he left unfinished.
