Seasoned politician Dr. Kiiza Besigye has launched a new tree planting campaign in bid to save the environment.
This was revealed during the funeral of one Cerinah Murumba, an FDC staunch supporter in Rubanda.
Besigye said this was In line with a recent FDC resolution citing that instead of taking a wreath to pay last respects to the party members,they will always be taking fruit trees and plant them.
He noted that these serve as a memorial; bear fruit for others and are great for environment! We also did mini fundraising for orphans.
Cerinah Murumba (51), widow of late Cnsl Wilfred Murumba,mother of 4, a God-loving teacher and friend to many was laid to rest at her home in Rubanda District.
Instead of buying a wreath of, say 50,000, they can buy a fruit tree seedling of 3,000shs, and then use the balance to put in an envelope to support the family’s immediate needs, especially where the deceased was a bread winner.
