Like they say, theres nothing like bad PR…. an article run by Campus Bee with a photo depicting a Makerere University Fresher reporting with a metallic suitcase went viral and well wishers, led by BBC journalist Allan Kasujja, have started fundraising for Suubi Henry.
The group coordinated by blogger Ruth Aine, Cedric Babu and Kasujja have so far made pledges and also engaged companies and colleagues in a mini fundraiser.
Among items so far pledged to support Kiyimba includes; A laptop and clothes from a one Hashim Wasswa, shoes, a smartphone with unlimited data and airtime from a one Dennis Kakonge, beddings from power FM presenter Mulungi and her listeners, a leather suitcase as well as Shs2m to cover a debt at Suubi’s former school.
Well wishers have also sent Suubi mobile money on his number after it was shared by Kasujja. Indeed, humanity prevails!
