KIRUHURA —President Museveni has contributed UGX 60m, to facilitate the purchase of land for a community primary school in Kibega, Kanyaryeru, Kiruhura district.
The school fundraiser was held at a private function in which the Vice President of Uganda, Maj. (Rtd) Alupo Jessica represented President Yoweri Museveni. The event took place on Sunday afternoon in Kibega, in Kiruhura district.
The school, upon completion, will ease accessibility for the young school learners who trek over 5kms every day to reach the nearest learning facility.
The Vice President used the occasion to commend the people of Kanyaryeru for being models of development and called for increased participatory efforts from all leaders to turn around all villages in Uganda on the same social-economic development path.
Alupo also thanked the people of Kanyaryeru for actively participating in the Luweero Triangle liberation war, a war that led to political and economic stability with sustained peace and security for over 30 years.
The Vice President called for increased vigilance and strict observance of COVID-19 health protocols. The Ministry of Health has already warned against rising COVID-19 numbers across the country.
