Charity initiatives of this nature have been a feature of the Jazz Safari since 2011, with support rendered to different causes through the Rotary Clubs of Uganda. And the latest beneficiary of this helping hand is the Balintuma Road-based school, which during the ongoing second term received equipment valued at £50,000 (about Shs250m). The equipment was obtained through friends and a partnership with Disc Manufacturing Services, a new specialist ICT center based in England.

“Our partnership has been flourishing and we look forward to reaching as far as taking up staff welfare at the school for the next five years with an annual donation of £2,500. Renovations are ongoing at the school as well,” said Tshaka Mayanja, the Jazz Safari founder.

The Jazz Safari has also championed causes in projects such as farming in Ssese Islands under Rotary Kampala-Ssese Club. For several years they have also worked with the Rotary Clubs Cancer Ward at Nsambya Hospital, dedicating a ward named after the late Maureen Mugoya; The Maureen Mugoya Breast Cancer Ward.

The Johnnie Walker Jazz Safari whose eleventh edition is set for June 30, will have legendary bassist and vocalist Richard Bona performing at the annual event which this year switches venue to Speke Resort Muyonyo lakeside.

Parenting is no easy job. It even gets harder when you are in the spotlight because with fame comes public scrutiny. It is thus no surprise that celebrities have often been judged harshly in the court of public opinion for raising spoiled kids.

Well, it seems the story might go differently for socialite Cameroon Gitawo. The South Africa based Ugandan socialite seems determined to accomplish the herculean task of raising a well-disciplined son amid temptations of his lavish lifestyle.

In a social media post, where he is seen hanging out with his son, Chris Junior, in the backyard of his home in Sandton, Johannesburg, he revealed that he is grooming his son to be a responsible member of society. “My mission is to make my son a well groomed dude,” he noted.

Can he accomplish this? Only time will tell.
