Elderly persons get money from government.
Bukedea town council elderly persons start receiving their quarterly money from the government. There are 144 registered elderly persons who are to benefit from this exercise.
This exercise started yesterday 23/11/2021 under the special assistance grants for the elderly and is to be monitored by the Community Development Officer.
The elderly persons converged at Bukedea Township Primary school and each elderly person will walk, crawl or leap away with about 75,000 UGX quarterly.
According to the CDO, when government started registering the elderly in the district, most of them under-declared their ages which had to first be corrected.
