Kimina Upper beekeeping group in Mpakanyi subcounty, Masindi district was given some land in the murchision falls N.park to do beekeeping. the community is now free from elephant attacks because of the bees. they currently have 500 hives, with 350 already colonized


Zurah Namunyiga was inspired by a close friend to start a beekeeping enterprise after University. she has since registered Kyengeza Bees as her own processing company with monthly returns of about 2 million Ugx. she is our personality of the day.
