Ghetto president His Excellency Bobi Wine is a people’s darling lately. He is loved for his music, lifestyle, and most recently, his remarkable social responsibility. The Fire Base boss yesterday added mileage to himself when he met officials from Nkozi Hospital along Masaka road, the hospital where he was born. In the meeting, the star yet again won society’s hearts when he initiated a drive to construct an Accident and Emergency unit Facility at the hospital.
Bobi hails from Gomba and is a son of the Masaka soils. He welcomed the Hospital’s Administrator, Sr Teddy Nakyanzi. Having spent a fruitful day capped with a ‘pleasant meeting’ with her, the musician took to his Facebook page to call upon the public for a need he felt should not be overlooked.
First he noticed that the renovation of Masaka Road has increased road accidents. By the statistics he provided, Nkozi Hospital, the biggest nearby facility receives 15 to 20 road accident victims weekly. He also noticed that the hospital ambulance is very old, yet the victims have to be transported to Mulago in it. Worse still, the distance is too long.
It was on these grounds that the star decided to call on the public.
“The #FriendsOfNkozi want to build a #AccidentAndEmergencyUnit facility at #NkoziHospital and it would cost approximately #655million. Every avenue that can generate funds is welcome” he posted.
The activities for this fundraising will include a run, dubbed the #FriendsOfNkoziMarathon that will highlight many influential faces, led by the Cardinal, His Eminence Emmanuel Wamala. Thereafter, he will conduct a show with several other artistes to try and raise the money. He called upon the audience to be actively involved.
“I am appealing to all of you friends to get involved in this #NobelCause with all you can. Give ideas(in the comments below) on how best we can put funds together, advise on which sponsors to approach, create more awareness about it etc” he added.
Bobi has recently commissioned a number of charitable and noble acts, and is one of the headliners for the #SaveCarol Carwash at Panamera. He is acclaimed by many as a celebrity using his status to change lives, and positively impact on society.
