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.
