Star musician Bebe Cool has unveiled his expensive strategy to kick out the killer Tuberculosis (TB) disease out of the country.
During a press conference earlier today, the musician alongside his Gagamel International and Amber Heart Foundation have announced
a cordinated plan that will see patients receive free TB testing and treatment across the country.
This announcement comes less than a week since the music star, through his Facebook page, announced his non profit organization- Amber Heart Foundation- had received a grant of $400, 000 from the TB Reach Wave 7 to fight the killer disease.
Bebe Cool has been an ambassador for TB since 2018.
This shs1.5 billion grant will see the singer and his charity organization carry out a number of activities aimed at finding missing TB patients majorly within the districts of Kampala, Jinja and Mbarara.
The activities will kickoff this month and are expected to run for 14 months.
“I am going to use this money to raise Tuberculosis awareness among Ugandans with the help of the
TB actually kills more people currently more than even the HIV Virus. Many Ugandans are very ignorant about TB signs and treatment but as a big musician, I want to use this opportunity and the money I was given to get rid of that error in our society.
More money is going to be given to me after one year but after testing that I can do the job I signed up for. But when I go back, and present a good report, I will be given shs4 billion or more,” Bebe Cool stated.
The musician also used the opportunity to announce his musical achievements for 2019 and call upon Ugandans to join him in Kiwatule on Boxing Day for his Tondeka e Kiwatule music festival.
He also revealed that his music studio, Gagamel Records in open for business.
