Speaker of Parliament, Right Hon Rebecca Kadaga, Rotarians, Rotaractors, Interactors and guests all protocol observed. I warmly welcome you all to the Silver Jubilee Celebrations of the Rotaract Club of Kololo.

As we start the journey for the next 25 years, let’s uphold professionalism, integrity and hard work. And above all let the four way test guide us.
