Rubanda MP Jackline Lights Up Mungaara COU with Million-Worth Solar Panels

Rubanda District | The Black Examiner – Hon. Jackline Katabazi, Rubanda Woman Member of Parliament, made a significant donation on Thursday. She presented two solar panels valued at two million shillings to Mungaara COU, aimed at providing lighting for the parish priest’s residence and the catechist’s quarters.

These solar panels are designed to generate up to 150 watts of electric power. They include two high-performance 75-watt solar panels, rechargeable solar batteries, necessary cables, and all the materials required for a proper electrical installation. In addition to the panels, she also facilitated the procurement of solar bulbs intended for installation alongside the equipment.

During her address to the congregation at the church, Ms. Katabazi explained the motivation behind her charitable act. She recalled a visit to the church’s priest, Reverend Martin Monday, during which she discovered that his residential quarters lacked access to a reliable electricity supply.


Ms. Katabazi emphasized how closely she observed the situation, as it became clear that the priest’s residence had no electricity, despite his dedicating his evenings to studying the Bible and other important literature for his church duties. This realization compelled her to acquire the solar equipment.

After visiting Mungaara Primary School, Mrs. Jacqueline also pledged support for the school’s rehabilitation efforts.

The solar equipment was received by Nyaruhaga Archdeacon Ven. Noah Kyoma on behalf of the church. He expressed deep gratitude to Ms. Katabazi for her generous donation. Ven. Kyoma conveyed the church community’s astonishment at this unexpected act of kindness and extended the bishop’s gratitude as well, concluding with a blessing for Ms. Katabazi.

They praised her for being the first politician of her stature to visit the area, noting that others were often deterred by its remote location.
