“Thank you Prof Kamuntu Ephraim for ensuring that Rural Electrification Agency (REA) does her work in Sheema South. In Ngoma, Rwengando, Mbaagwa, Kiziba, and some parts of Rwabutura we are already observing great progress in terms of development after recently being connected to the national grid. Thank you Dr. Elioda Tumwesigye. I am sure plans are underway to get the remaining areas like Butagasi and the whole of Kihunda ward/Sub County connected too. Kihunda in particular needs special attention. There is a health centre 111; and a multitude of schools including Kihunda Parents secondary school with a population of over 800 students,” Mesharch said.

We shall continue to need your encouragement, support and participation in more of our developmental programs we are going to have. God bless you all, God bless Sheema, God bless Uganda; for God and my Country,” Kamuntu Ephraim.
