She said that the house was constructed under a 10-month spell citing disruptions resulted from Covid-19 containment protocols announced by Head of State in June this year.

“Today, we have been able to hand over this house to the family of late Julian [Nakirijja] as we promised,” she said, adding that, “as CAFAC Uganda, we extend our services to different categories of people by extending to them interest free loans, mortgages and interest free land loans among others ”.

“Those interested in our services simply need to visit our offices at Muganzirwazza, Katwe in Kampala, pay subscription fees and join us,” Ms. Katushabe explained, adding that, the elderly and the blind don’t need subscription fees to be helped in this arrangement.

This website has learnt that CAFAC uses subscription fees from members to extend charity services to the vulnerable Ugandans in different parts of the country.

The family members were happy to take us on a guided tour. It is a two-bedroom house with a kitchen and a huge living room. Sanitation facilities have also been built.

Nakirijja who was at the mercy of the community in an area where poverty stinks died a few days into the construction of the house by CAFAC Uganda.

Alikisa Namutyaba, a daughter to the deceased thanked CAFCA Uganda Limited for delivering on their promise.

“When our mother died, we thought the construction was going to be halted. We really want to thank you so much for this generosity of building us this modern house,” Namutyaba who converted to the Islamic religion today said.

Namutyaba cited the generosity of CAFAC leaders to take the decision and she has been named Rahuma.

Namutyaba recalled that cold air would invade through holes at night and that when it rained, those at home, including grandchildren would huddle in a corner and afterwards mop the water off the floor”.

Namutyaba celebrated entering the new house.

With the housing problem having been solved, the sky which their house seems to touch when seen from afar can only be the limit.

Fenekansi Musoke, Kimwanyi LC1 Vice Chairperson on behalf of the village leadership applauded CAFAC for not abandoning the project even when Nakirijja died.

“On behalf of the community and the family, I want to thank you for this house and we are very happy. May God bless you,” Musoke said.
