Residents of Lwetunga, Bunankya, Ttoggo, Namaggwa and neighbouring villages in Naluvule parish in Kapeeka sub-county are rejoicing over a new borehole dug for them by British volunteers.
For decades, the residents have been drawing water from a stagnant dirty ditch initially meant for a watering point for their cattle. But due to scarcity and absence of an alternative, they turned it into a source of water for domestic use.
God came to their rescue through leaders of Lwetunga Church of Christ, particularly the church leader Pastor Rose Sekatawa, who identified and lobbied volunteers of the British-based NGO hand-To-Hand, a pentecostal denomination institute, to bring the assistance.
They began by upgrading Kawansenyi well to a protected spring, and later constructed a borehole which is due for commissioning soon.
According to residents, the ‘Balokole’ (born again) church is a source of pride to them for bringing the much cherished facility.
In an interview, Pastor Rose Sekatawa attributed the new development to God’s answer to their incessant prayers for a miracle in the name of a clean water source, and thanked the volunteers for the work.
