Bwanika appreciated the company’ support and services rendered towards his people in wakiso but was not happy rescheduling the visit.

“I appreciate the support given by Rosebud to our community and we shall work with them as a district if they continue to respect the National Environment Management Authority guidelines” he said.

Rajiv Rupalleria, directors, Rosebud said the committee was not on appointment and big numbers contrary to Covid-19 guidelines.

“On reconciliation, we have agreed with the district team to sit and find a date when they will visit the firm and make their assessments. We have nothing to hide because we follow all NEMA guidelines as we carry out our work”, said Rajiv.
