The Deputy Resident District Commissioner for Kyankwanzi Denis Nzeirwe has donated 1050 kilograms of posho to the mechanics of Kabale district in support of their role towards the fight against the spread of COVID 19 in Uganda.
Mr. Nzeirweâ€™s donation comes at a time when business has been greatly affected by the lockdown that was declared in April by President Yoweri Museveni in an attempt to stop the spread of COVID 19 in Uganda.
The consignment was handed over to the Kabale district Covid19 task force on Wednesday, after the discharge of Kenyan truck driver who was admitted at kabale regional referral hospital after testing fully negative to covid 19.
While receiving the relief ,Bruce Anguzo, the owner of Anguzu Motor Spares in Kabale main garage who is also the chairperson of Kabale garage mechanics association said that Mr. Nzeirwe had not only demonstrated a spirit of a Patriot, but also a true exemplary character of a good leader.
He also thanked Mr. Nzeirwe for remembering garage members saying that they have been being ignored and segregated in the distribution of food by other leaders.
Denis Nzeirwe reiterated the presidentâ€™s call to the public to continue observing the guidelines issued by the Ministry of Health such as social distancing, washing and sanitizing often and staying home when one has a fever, cold or cough.
The Kabale district covid 19 task force led by the district resident commissioner Darius Nandinda appreciated Denis Nzeirweâ€™s donations saying that it has come at the time when the community in Kabale district needs them.
He also thanked all the well wishers that have donated to Kabale corona virus task force for their compassion saying that fuel donations have helped them in transporting pregnant women from rural villages to the district hospital.
