“This year, we have agreed to focus the contributions of our partners on actually implementing projects to improve our schools and health centers. We shall start with re-roofing Nakibubo blue and Nakivubo settlement primary schools and also, build a maternity ward at Kiswa health center,” Said Jennifer Musisi in a press conference a few hours ago.
“We hereby wish to inform the general public that the Kampala City Festival public activities earlier scheduled for Friday 5th to Sunday 7th October 2018 have been cancelled.” Musisi added
She also added that the purpose of the press conference is to inform the public that this year they to focus on the sponsors’ contributions to the CSR cause. “The money from the proceeds have been going towards rehabilitation of our city schools. In addition to what the government gives us, our #KampalaCityFestival partners have done a great job in helping us improve our schools,” she said at the KCCA presser this morning.
The Kampala City Festival started seven years ago and has been one of the biggest events on the social calendar attracting about 5 million people from within and outside the region.
