BUGANDA Land Board (BLB) an organisation set up by Kabaka to manage Kingdom land, in partnership with Guoji group (Mirembe-Ssentema project partners) have given out Christmas gifts to the residents of Ssentema as a way of giving back to society. The gifts given out included sugar, cooking oil, soap, salt, rice among others.
The BLB team was led by Ms. Namaganda Olivia whereas the Guoji group was led by Ms. Wendy Shen.
The practice of giving gifts during Christmas season, according to Christian tradition, is symbolic of the presentation of the gifts by the Three Wise Men to the infant Jesus. Gift giving is an ancient tradition, likely to be as old as humanity itself. It was probably a common practice in prehistory, helping to maintain friendly relations between different groups of people by building bonds of trust between them.
At a function today in Sentema, BLB’s Ms.Namaganda said, this arrangement is about thanking the residents of the area for their cooperation with the Guoji group in implementing the Ssentema affordable housing project at the Busiro Ssaza headquarters.
Ssebwana Owek.Charles Kisiriiza has thanked the residents for warmly welcoming the Ssentema project in the area. He equally thanked BLB and Guoji group for giving back to people especially the underprivileged in the area. Thanks to Buganda Land Board and Guoji Group for this benevolent heart.
