KABAKA’S Birthday Run organizing committee chairman Robert Kabushenga has today presented a sh110m cheque from Bukedde towards the run due April 6. (route at bottom of story)

Buganda Kingdom sports and recreation minister Henry Ssekabembe received the cheque before an organizing committee meeting at the Vision Group head office.

 

Proceeds from the event will go towards the prevention and cure of Fistula, a disease that has affected hundreds of women in Uganda.

Airtel Uganda became the first company to heed to the call for funding with a sh100m offer towards the fundraising drive.

The Katikkiro of Buganda Charles Peter Mayiga launched the run at Bulange on March 5 urging the Kabaka’s subjects to exercise regularly in order to keep fit.
