Judy Ojaamong, Baganda premier and Uganda speaker take part in marathon
Busia Governor Sospeter Ojaamong’s wife Judy on Saturday joined Ugandan Speaker Rebecca Kadaga and Baganda Prime Minister Charles Peter Maiga for the Run for Maternal Health Marathon at Lumino-Bukwekwe Primary School in Samia Bugwe South, Uganda. After flagging off the 13km men’s race and three kilometres for women, the trio walked for three kilometres to Lumino health centre, where they visited the maternity ward and planted trees. Judy impressed Maiga when she knelt down before planting a seedling. “You have given it respect already,” Maiga said. The aim of the event was to raise Sh7 million to equip two maternity wards. Judy said she is happy Uganda is adopting the Beyond Zero Campaign, the brainchild of Kenya’s First Lady Margaret Kenyatta.
