During a preparatory meeting at the Kanungu district council hall, various stakeholders, including local government leaders, religious figures, and opinion leaders, gathered to discuss arrangements for the function, which is expected to draw thousands of participants.
Eng Sam Arinitwe Kajojo expressed gratitude to the Mk movement for selecting Kanungu district as the host for the entire Kigezi region. He urged leaders and the entire Kanungu and Kigezi community to actively engage in pre-activities to ensure a significant turnout on the day of the event. Kajojo highlighted that the team is focused on organizing aspects such as catering, entertainment, and preparations for both local and national visitors to guarantee the success of the function.
