Over 2,000 residents of Buwali Sub county, Bududa district are set to benefit from the recently commissioned UGX 335M piped water supply system funded by Uganda Breweries Limited.

Construction of the water supply system commenced in May 2019 and was implemented in partnership with the Rotary Club of Kampala North, with the aim of improving access to safe and adequate water in Bududa district.

The water project was commissioned by the Rotary District Governor, DG. Rosetti Nabbumba in the presence of Uganda Breweries Managing Director Alvin Mbugua, the former BOU Deputy Governor, Dr. Louis Kasekende and the Bududa district leadership team and community.

Speaking during the commissioning, Uganda Breweries Managing Director Alvin Mbugua said, “Uganda Breweries Limited is pleased to be part of a project that will enhance growth 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.”

Mr. Mbugua emphasized the importance of piped water systems in freeing the community from the poverty trap, where they dedicate much of their time to carrying water over long distances.

Bududa as a region has insufficient access to clean and safe water as the few spring wells serving the residents are hard to access due to the mountainous terrain of the area.

“The demand for clean and safe water in Uganda is increasing every single day and we should all acknowledge the importance of fulfilling this demand. I am pleased that we have commissioned this project that will directly benefit thousands of people in Buwali Sub County and the neighboring community.” Said Rosetti Nabbumba the Rotary District Governor.

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. He added that the community has chosen and trained a group of people who are going to manage and maintain the project and also sensitize communities to promote good sanitation.

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.

UBL has previously constructed over 30 boreholes in Acholi and Lango sub-regions, Northern Uganda targeting sorghum farming communities who supply the brewery with raw material for production.

Top Police authorities are slated to meet the Katikkiro of Buganda Charles Peter Mayiga this morning to tackle the security raid on a thanksgiving function organized by the Mbogo clan head, and religious leaders at Mugulu in Mityana town over last weekend.

Mobogo Clan head, Kayiira Gajuule had invited Bishop Emeritus John Baptist Kaggwa the retired Bishop of Masaka Diocese to grace the thanksgiving ceremony when anti-riot police stormed the area and sprayed teargas to disperse everyone.

This incident has since drawn widespread criticism from both Buganda kingdom loyalists who have since marched to Bulange Mengo demanding an apology from the Police besides the public condemning police actions

Just yesterday afternoon,. Police were forced to use teargas and live bullets to disperse a group of Buganda loyalists at Mityana municipality protesting the incident and demanding that District Police Commander, Alex Mwine Mukono unconditionally releases all the motorcycles he confiscated during the raid.

This compelled the police boss IGP Martin Okoth Ochola to apologize to the bishop and the Catholic Church.

The police political commissar led by a team of senior officers announced that they would be visiting Bishop Kaggwa at his home to announce their apology to his family and the church on behalf of IGP Ochola .

On Monday, the police spokesperson Fred Enanga apologized to the Catholic Church defending the police action on preventing the spread of COVID19.

He said the firing of teargas was caused by a group of uninvited politicians including Francis Zaake among others who had attracted youth.

Now according to the Buganda kingdom spokesperson Noah Kiyimba, a meeting between the Katikkiro Charles Peter Mayiga and the top police leadership is scheduled for 11:00 am at Bulange Mengo.
