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.

With the Rugby Premier League kicking off today Friday 29 November with the first night game between the first and second clubs, we learned that the league has a new sponsor in the all new Nile Special Stout. 

At a press briefing Thursday at the Kyadondo Rugby Club, the new Stout from Nile Breweries unveiled a mouth-watering UGX670M sponsorship package.

Speaking at the launch of the league, the president Uganda Rugby Union Godwin Kayangwe saluted Nile Breweries as solid partners and investors in the development of the game in Uganda given their decade-long partnership.

“We wholeheartedly welcome Nile Special Stout as the title sponsor of the League and are privileged that rugby has been selected as the anchor sponsorship. This is testament to the growth of the game as an entertaining spectacle. And while we will always have a special place for Nile Special, we will embrace Nile Special Stout on this new journey as we’ve launched our new ambitious strategy to make rugby the leading sport in the country. Thank you Nile Breweries for truly living the line “Number one fan of Uganda Rugby” and we pledge to give Nile Special Stout a great landing as it’s launched to the rest of the country,” said Mr. Kayangwe.

The Nile Special Stout brand manager Francis Nyende affirmed that even though the sponsorship has changed hands to the new brand, Nile Special Stout, the commitment to partnering rugby is as high as it’s ever been.

“Rugby is much more than a game. It’s a lifestyle, a livelihood for some, an entertainment for many and a proud flag bearer of our country. As a bold, dark and satisfying liquid, we share certain intrinsic values with rugby players and fans and as the first and only stout crafted in Uganda, Nile Special Stout is proud to partner with such a great property that consistently flies our flag high and proud.” said Francis.
