The group joined the youth in recreational activities as they played omweso, ludo and other games before they did a groundbreaking ceremony for the construction of toilets in the suburb.
According to Rajiv, the funds for the construction of the toilets came from proceeds from the recent Ascot Goat Race that intends to support charity. among those who attended include Rajiv and his wife, Sudhir's daughter Sheena and her husband.
The toilets and related facilities are built at the Good Samaritan Primary School in Kamwokya and are expected to improve the sanitation in the area.
This year's Royal Ascot Goat took place on October 12, 2019, at Speke Resort in Munyonyo, attracting some of the biggest names in the country including Deputy Speaker of Parliament Jacob Oulanyah, diplomats, politicians, businessmen and socialites like Judith Heard.
