The Buyaga East Member of Parliament who also represents Uganda in the Pan African Parliament Eric Musana Acaali on Saturday fulfilled his pledge of 100Litres of fuel worth sh500, 000 cash to support the campaign of grading Kagadi model playground that had stalled for over two years.
Musana through his representative Vincent Tumuramye expressed the need of saving Kagadi model playground stressing that youth talents have been undermined, money lost by both the town council and business community as the playground used to host many functions.
“We all want to see the talents of our children go higher and this can only be done through sports and many other avenues. Therefore, by supporting the cause to grade and put to standard Kagadi Model Playground is one way of supporting the youth in talent development,” Musana said
He has also implored the youth to embrace government programs especially Youth Livelihood Program, Parish Development Modal that will alleviate poverty from households.
“As we develop talents, I encourage the youth to actively engage in government programs like PDM which is also aimed at uplifting their income status,” Musana added.
Meanwhile, the Kagadi district Male Youth Councilor also the team leader “Save Kagadi Model Playground” Vincent Ssemuga who received the money applauded Hon Musana for fulfilling his pledge of 100 liters of fuel.
“I want to thank Hon. Musana for understanding what the youth and the community want and supporting our cause with 100 litres of fuel. I want to pledge that we shall put into good use of all the support the community has given us. Our sole purpose is to restore our Kagadi Model Playground,” Semuga said
He called for more support from other well-wishers towards the grading of Kagadi modal playground.
