Yesterday, celebrity hair stylist Kennedy Zziwa fulfilled his promise of opening up a free salon at Kampiringisa Rehabilitation Center in Mpigi District.
The proprietor of Kisementi based Zziwa Hair Studio, donated salon equipment including dryers, clippers, sinks, barber chairs among others to make sure that the students in the facility have clean hair dos.
Speaking to ChimpLyf, Zziwa said it is his job as a hair stylist to help others look good.
“The kids in the rehabilitation center are there heal and healing is a process, they need to be neat for them to focus on their future. And the saloon will help them in learning more skills and putting them to practice so that when they get outside to the real world, they have what to show, “he said.
The salon will be officially launched in January next year with Maggie Kigozi as the chief guest.
Zziwa partnered with Agiban and Wahl Company, who for long have seen his struggles to reach out to the kids at the Rehabilitation center.
Last year Zziwa was struggling with drug addiction which saw him admitted at Butabika Mental Hospital for over three months only to come out as an inspiration to many.
