Musician Vinka signs the pact against drink driving.

Uganda Breweries Limited (UBL) under their Red Card Initiative, on Friday launched a responsible drinking campaign that is aimed at engaging consumers to make a commitment to never drink and drive, in a bid to reduce drink driving incidents in Uganda.

The campaign dubbed “Join the Pact to never drink and drive” is a continuation of Diageo’s worldwide Join the Pact campaign that has been implemented in over 40 countries since 2008. Diageo, through their Johnnie Walker brand, partnered with global rally champions like Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button as campaign ambassadors and engaged consumers to show their responsible drinking commitment by making a pledge online. The campaign has attracted over 13 million commitments to never drink and drive from inception to date. In Uganda, Join the Pact is targeting to collect 10,000 commitments over a period of 6 months.

Speaking during the launch of the campaign, Uganda Breweries Managing Legal and Corporate Relations Director Charity Kiyemba said, “Incidences of drink driving account for about 5% of road accidents in Kampala according to Kampala Metropolitan Traffic Police. We at Uganda Breweries, are concerned about our consumers who put themselves at risk through irresponsible practices like drink driving. It is for this reason therefore that we are launching this campaign to promote responsible alcohol consumption and practices.”

To spearhead the campaign in Uganda, UBL has appointed award winning female dancehall artiste, Vinka, real names Veronica Luggya as Ambassador. Vinka will lead the campaign for 6 months, alongside media personality, Flavia Tumusiime and businessman, Innocent Nahabwe.

“We handpicked these Ambassadors because they show responsible attitudes towards alcohol and resonate well with our consumers. Vinka is very popular especially among the young generation which we are specifically targeting with this campaign. She will use her music and social media platforms to encourage her fan base to Join the Pact to never drink and drive,” Kiyemba said.

She added that having Flavia Tumusiime and Innocent Nahabwe as Ambassadors also gives UBL an even bigger platform to continue with the brewery’s 7-year commitment on driving awareness on responsible alcohol consumption.

UBL will for the next 6 months be interacting with consumers online, in bars, alcohol selling outlets and universities to encourage them to make a commitment Join the Pact. They will also be giving away free UBER rides to consumers who sign the pact.

“It’s was a great morning as I presented a BUS to WAKISO GIANTS FC at the home ground in Wakiso.

Upon my recent travel around the USA 2018,

As I was on my way to Phoenix I fortunately sat next to one kind Man, As we chatted he took me though an adventure of his business. I also shared to him who I was which got him overwhelmed and upon off boarding the flight we shared contacts and promised to reach out each other again.

Yes we did when I met him again In Oregon, we talked about passions in which I told him of what I do beyond music. I love sports and – Wakiso Giants FC my team that I have loved and supported regardless!!

He picked a lot of interest and asked me what best he can contribute to us.

On more talk he mentioned that he had a bus company and asked Whether giving WAKISO GIANTS one would make a change. I was so happy and immediately reached the administration of this team because he only gave a bus to the team and wasn’t responsible to ship and pay tax for it.

Long story short the Bus is finally here and today morning I officially handed it to the team together with the FUFA president Mr. Moses Magogo

I am so proud that we have ability that we can exploit if given a chance. PURPLE SHARKS – Enjoy your bus LEONE ISLAND MUSIC EMPIRE” Chameleone affirmed.
