By Our Reporter

Uganda Breweries Limited (UBL) has contributed UGX 335M towards the construction of a water supply system that is aimed at improving access to safe and adequate water in Bududa.

The two-year water project is being implemented in partnership with the Rotary Club of Kampala North. It will see both entities construct a piped water supply system that will serve over 2,000 people in Buwali Sub County and the neighboring communities.

The announcement was made by the Uganda Breweries Managing Director Mark Ocitti at a ground breaking ceremony held at Budei education center on Saturday.

According to a community assessment done by Rotary Uganda, Bududa has insufficient access to clean and safe water as the few spring wells serving the residents are hard to access due to the terrain of the area. In addition the majority of the people in the area have disabilities making it even more difficult for them to reach the water sources.

“We are pleased to be part of a project that will enhance development in the community through provision of basic and essential necessities such as clean and safe water. By constructing a reliable water supply facility in this area, we hope to ease access to clean and safe water, which will ensure a healthier community.” Ocitti said.

Many people in Bududa and the neighboring areas are still lacking access to clean water and other social services.

The BOU Deputy Governor, Dr. Louis Kasekende, who is also the water project’s manager said, “Oftentimes, families have to move long distances to get water from unsafe sources which has posed health risks to them. I am pleased that we are solving some of these issues with this water project that will directly benefit hundreds of people in Buwali Sub County and the neighboring community.”

The Bududa LC5 chairman, Wilson Watira acknowledged Uganda Breweries and Rotary Uganda for their efforts in empowering and developing the region by providing clean and safe water.

Uganda Breweries Limited has in the past years run similar projects. Under the Water of Life initiative, UBL supports projects that help combat water poverty by improving access to clean drinking water and sanitation.

By Our Reporter 

The economic and financial constraints caused by COVID-19 have been felt by many people in Uganda. However, telecom giant, MTN Uganda through its MTN MoMo Nyabo Together Promotion, is restoring lives in ways unimaginable.

Betty Nanfuka, 54, from Buwama in Masaka district, won herself 5,000,000 Uganda shillings. Nanfuka refused to believe that she had won till she received the actual MTN team at her residence in Buwama.

The mother of twelve and grandmother of ten danced and jubilated while welcoming the MTN team to her residence in Buwama.

Nanfuka said she would use the money she has won to finally build a permanent structure; “I intend to immediately buy iron sheets so that I can build my dream home. With the rest of the money I will be able to invest in farming as I already had a nursery bed for my tomatoes.”

A security conscious Nanfuka narrated how she later on had to inquire from the area chairman of Sango sub county if indeed MTN had an ongoing promotion since she does not have a television set and barely uses her radio. After confirming the truth, an overly excited Nanfuka even failed to sleep as she resorted to praying the rosary since it all felt like a dream to her.

Nanfuka has been a loyal client to the MTN brand especially its mobile money service that she uses to pay for Ready Pay solar.

Nanfuka chose her husband Leonard Kawuma as her beneficiary; “He knows how far we have come,” she said, in reference to her husband as they danced together.

Kawuma received 2,000,000 Uganda shillings as his wife received 3,000,000 Uganda shillings.

Amidst the global COVID-19 pandemic, one’s worst nightmare would be falling sick of either COVID-19 itself or any other ailment. As many struggle to afford feeding and accommodation bills, the last bill one would want to incur is a medical bill.

Despite all the financial challenges that came with the pandemic, Nalongo Kevin Namagembe a resident of Kikoni had accumulated medical bills that had stripped her of all her finances yet she still had more medical bills to meet. Namagembe who is a Manager at Intertrade Global Eastern region stationed in Malaba has not been able to resume work because of her health complications.

Fortunately, she won Ugx 4,200,000 shillings in the on-going MTN MoMo Nyabo Promotion and with this money, she will be able to treat her hand that was paralyzed by the illness.

During the lockdown Namagembe used up all she had whilst footing her medical bills: “Transport alone was expensive as I was normally charged 25,000 to get to Mulago from Makerere-Kikoni,” she said. Namagembe thanked God for not forsaking her and using MTN to bless her at a time she needed it the most.

Namagembe further said that her health was her major priority and she would use the money she had won to pay for her therapy as well as purchase the different medications she had been advised to buy.

“I can now breathe. I am now able to afford the natural remedies my nutritionist had recommended as well all the medicine I need.” Said a happy Namagembe. She shared the money with her father, Matthew Mukasa Ssentamu.

Apart from the 2 daily winners of up to UGX 5,000,000, 250 people win 50,000 shillings directly every day. All you have to do is pay using MTN MoMo and stand a chance to win.
