Kampala, Uganda | THE BLACK EXAMINER | The Wazalendo Savings and Credit Cooperative Society of the Ugandan army, UPDF, has made a generous contribution of shs5 million in support of the forthcoming Busoga royal wedding, scheduled for November 18, 2023 in Bugembe.

Lt Col Allan Kitanda, the chairman of the Sacco’s board of directors, had the honor of presenting the cheque to Dr. Joseph Muvawala, the Katuukiro of Busoga Kingdom, at the Sheraton Hotel in Kampala. Lt Col Kitanda extended his congratulations to the Kyabazinga and the people of Busoga for this significant milestone.

He acknowledged the pivotal role played by the local community in their cooperative’s success, both as members and in investing the credit extended by Wazalendo. This strong partnership with the community is why they were present to celebrate with the people of Busoga, who have contributed significantly to the SACCO’s prosperity.

Dr. Joseph Muvawala, Katuukiro of Busoga, expressed his gratitude to the Wazalendo leadership for their support toward the Busoga royal wedding. He also praised the entire UPDF for providing security for the king and his property, made possible through UPDF personnel who are members of Wazalendo SACCO. He emphasized that the government’s strategic decision to involve uniformed personnel in the Kyabazinga’s security is a testament to the trust they have in the cooperative.

Dr. Muvawala noted that the impressive performance of Wazalendo has left a positive impression on the people of Uganda, and he encouraged the Sacco’s leaders to consider welcoming community members as new members to enjoy the benefits of the cooperative. He also commended the people of Busoga for allowing their children to serve in the armed forces, with many of them becoming members of the Wazalendo Sacco.

The event was attended by Eng Patrick Batumbya, the Chairman of the organizing committee, and other committee members.
