Airtel Uganda in partnership with the Buganda Kingdom has launched the virtual Kabaka Birthday Run at Bulange Mengo.

The virtual Kabaka Birthday Run will take place on 19th November under the theme “Men against AIDS to save the girl child” and will be flagged off by the Kabaka of Buganda. For this special event, participants will virtually be part of the event, joining the proceedings from their homes.

The Kabaka Birthday Run is an annual event to mark the King’s birthday as part of a partnership that the telecommunications giant has with the Buganda Kingdom to sponsor four of their most important activities; the Kabaka’s Birthday Run, Kabaka’s birthday celebration, the Kabaka’s coronation as well as Eid El Fitri. Airtel Uganda also sponsors the Masaza Cup – the Buganda kingdom football tournament.

Unfortunately, with the outbreak of the Coronavirus (Covid-19), many business activities and sporting events had to be put on hold or postponed to mitigate the spread of the disease, and the Kabaka Birthday Run was part of those.

Speaking during the launch of the virtual Kabaka Run, Ali Balunywa, Airtel Uganda’s Sales Distribution Director said; “As Airtel Uganda, we are proud to continue this partnership and support of the Kingdom’s activities. Covid-19 has presented us with an opportunity to exploit the virtual world. As we continue to observe the safety measures to limit the spread of Covid-19, we still have to devise new ways to continue doing business and holding certain events.”

“We believe that the virtual Kabaka Birthday Run is a good idea to ensure the continuity of the Kabaka’s birthday celebrations no matter where we are.” He added.

The Katikkiro of Buganda, Owek. Charles Peter Mayiga, reiterated the Kingdom’s efforts to support the girl child in the fight against AIDS.

“We had prepared to mark the Kabaka’s 65th birthday with a very big Kabaka Birthday Run but Covid-19 interrupted that. This will not stop us from running. We shall run in remembrance of the Kabaka’s birthday and we shall continue with our efforts while we work with Airtel Uganda, UNAIDS, and other partners to save the girl child against AIDS,” he remarked.

In 2017, the focus was re-channeled from Fistula to the Fight against Sickle Cells – to direct the Kabaka Birthday Run’s proceeds towards fighting the Sickle Cells disease in Uganda. Together with the Ministry of Health, the impact has been created in the areas of Sickle Cell Disease Awareness, testing and prevention. About 150,000 people were tested in three years.

Zari finally reveals her boyfriend Shakib Cham’s age…

Classy socialite, Zari Hassan has come out to defend herself after facing heavy criticism, banter and trolls for making out with ‘younger boys’.

About a month ago, Zari left Netizens in wonderland after she was smoked out in a nightclub, grinding a young guy. It later came to light that she and Chap are not just friends but partners in passion.

She took to her Instagram page and confirmed their entanglement and told critics off!

“…I am free to do whatever I feel like. Life is too short. I gotta enjoy it as I’m supposed to,” the self-styled Boss Lady barks. Prior to this, she had just had a fling, GK Choppa, which ended as soon as the holy month Ramathan started.

Our investigative Bazzinyi laid a strategy, specifically to uncover the identity of this lucky dude, drilling the tried and tested Zari’s honeypot.

Trust the dedicated Bazzinyi team! Within a short period of time, they had already gathered enough info about the chap.

Shakib Cham is the name of the guy, a Ugandan by Nationality, who was raised in the Kawempe slums. Apparently, Shakib’s work is to look good, smell nice, kwetega and smash loaded mamas. Numerous sources tip us that he is in his mid-20s.

However, Zari claims that Shakib is actually older than what is peddled on the social media streets. In a latest interview with a local media house, the mother-of-five trashed all the allegations that she’s molesting Shakib. She says he is a grown able-bodied chap, who is equipped with all the Zzina skills.

“Why are people mad tho? Shakib is 30. He just looks good…lol. I hear 18 year, 20 year old…molesting. Do they even know the meaning of molestation? Smh,” Zari blasted and vowed to continue making merry with her man.
