Sadolin Uganda in partnership with Seroma Limited over the weekend completed a weeklong project to give a facelift to the home of the Archbishop of the Church of Uganda.
Located on Willis Road, Namirembe, the Archbishop’s Palace as it is known, is the formal the residence of the Archbishop of the Church of Uganda.
The House has housed Archbishops; Janani Luwum, Livingstone Mpalanyi Nkoyoyo, Henry Luke Orombi and the current Rev. Stanley Ntagali. It is said to have been last renovated in 20012.
Sadolin contributed a total of 810 litres of paint to the project while partner Seroma Limited financed the logistics.
Archbishop Ntagali presided over the unveiling of the project at the residence in Namirembe, which was attended by representatives from the provincial office of the Church of Uganda, Sadolin Paint staff and the Seroma Limited proprietors Mr & Mrs. Robert Sekidde.
Speaking at the event, Archbishop Ntagali thanked the two companies for their heartfelt contribution towards restoring the palace to its original beautiful state, saying that the palace is considered a monumental building in the Church of Uganda as a number of Archbishops have lived there.
“The palace of the archbishop is not only a home for us that live there, but a home of the Lord and we would not be any more grateful for this kind gesture towards the church,” Ntagali said.
He mentioned that a number of Church of Uganda buildings were in need of a facelift and that he would endeavour during his tenure as Archbishop of Uganda and Bishop of Kampala to make sure that he leaves a larger number of them refurbished.
Sadolin’s Mr. Ashish Devani while speaking at the event said that the company, through its social responsibility looks to continuously support refurbishments of monumental structures so as to preserve the history of the country.
“Ours is a small contribution and we are delighted to partner with Seroma Limited for this project and also contribute to the preservation of the monumental structures of the Church of Uganda,” Devani said.
Speaking on behalf of Seroma Limited, Mrs. Margaret Sekidde said the company always works on the service of the Lord and as soon as they were appointed as part of the renovation committee of archbishop’s palace, chose Sadolin as the strategic partner for the project.
“We are happy to see that this project has come to fruition and thank Sadolin for their contribution,” Mrs. Sekidde said.
