The traders who lost their property in the Wednesday morning fire have continued receiving massive support from sympathizers and well wishers the latest coming from President Yoweri Museveni who contributed 1billion shillings. He made the offer today when he visited the site to assess the damage for himself.
The Kabaka of Buganda, Ronald Muwenda Mutebi who contributed 5 Million through his Minister yesterday also visited the burnt market today. The Bayuda Star Jose Chameleone yesterday went to the burnt market and as usual he was lifted around waving to his fans. Chameleone( real name Joseph Mayanja) gave the traders half a million shillings and also pledged seven million Ug shillings to help in the settlement of loans acquired by these traders. Bobi Wine has auctioned his Cadillac Escalade and he is calling for the rich guys out there to come up with at least 200 to 400 million in exchange for his luxurious 4WD SUV. The money will be donated to the traders.
70 percent of the traders in this market are women who had acquired loans from micro-finance institutions as start up capital. Unfortunately all their efforts were reduced to ashes last Wednesday. Other items donated to the traders include nails, furniture plus other accessories to help in the restoration of the stalls.
