Prof. Kwesiga added that the detergent shall be distributed in various districts in Kigezi sub region like Kabale, Kanungu, Kisoro, Rukungiri, Rubanda and Rukiga and most importantly they shall also extend the service to the neighboring villages.
However, she stressed that as a university they have a problem of not having a learning hospital in the university and also lack a high class laboratory which have hindered their performance in the science department.
She therefore called upon the government stakeholders to consider them and have these constructed.
