To help them carry out this work and keep hydrated, Coca-Cola Beverages Uganda handed out 100 cartons of water and beverages to traffic officers stationed on the different routes to Namugongo Martyrs Shrine.

Uganda Martyrs Day is an esteemed religious event attended by thousands of pilgrims on June 3rd every year. The day commemorates the martyrdom of 45 faithful Anglican and Catholic converts to Christianity who were brutally executed.

We know that supporting the traffic officers to effectively conduct their duty triggers a ripple effect by easing movement and ensuring safety for road users and attending pilgrims,” said Kirunda Magoola, the Public Affairs Communication and Sustainability Director of CCBU.

“Such support makes our teams work better by keeping us cool and hydrated in the heat. We appreciate Coca-Cola Beverages Uganda for reaching out to support Uganda Police to run its operations effectively,” SSP Kauma said.
