Baker Luwano, the proud parent of the graduate, extended gratitude to all those who supported the event. He acknowledged that without their help, his family would not have achieved this milestone.
In related news, NRM District Mobilizer Mubiru George criticized President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni’s recent remarks about banning used clothes in Uganda. President Museveni had argued that Uganda should focus on producing new clothes rather than importing secondhand ones. Mubiru countered by stating that these clothes are affordable for the poor and emphasized that now is not the time to ban them, considering Uganda’s current economic situation.
