Youth tilling the Cardinal Nsubuga playground in Kisubi

Youth in Kisubi and the surrounding areas of Kawuku, Namulanda, Bwerenga and Kiwuulwe have joined hands to re-green the Cardinal Nsubuga Playground.

Led by Alex Mubiru, the youth have utilized the current sports ban announced by President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni to mitigate the Coronavirus pandemic in Uganda.

First, there has been the tilling of the land to soften it as well as grade the uneven parts before the grass will be planted in the coming days.

This follows full blessing of this play ground by the Catholic Church who own this piece of land that is now used by the local community.

“The digging of the surface to soften it started last week and expect to do the planting of grass in the next coming days” Louis “Figo” Kizito attested to Kawowo Sports.
