HUNDREDS OF UGANDANS PARTICIPATE IN KABAKA’S BIRTHDAY RUN
Hundreds of Ugandans participated in today’s Kabaka of Buganda, Ronald Muwenda Mutebi II ‘s birthday run . The Kabaka flagged off the run at Lubiri Mengo.
The Run has been held under the theme, “Men against AIDS to Save the Girl Child”, with the aim of continuing to create awareness about HIV/AIDS and encourage men to get tested, get treated and eventually protect women against infection.
The Katikkiro of Buganda, Charles Peter Mayiga said he was impressed by the big numbers that participated in the run.
“We are impressed by the number of participants who took part in this year’s edition of the Kabaka Birthday Run. We aimed to sell 80,000 kits and all were sold out, which is a sign of commitment our people have shown towards supporting the Kingdom initiatives, and we appreciate it,”Mayiga noted.
“We would not have been able to walk this journey alone. With support from our sponsors, Airtel Uganda, and partners like UNAIDS, among others who have contributed towards this noble cause of fighting the spread of HV/AIDs, the run has consistently been held.”
