I dedicate my work to my loved father and Mr. Twareberaho Emmuale who have literally scarified life’s joys to see me achieve my career and destiny. You have been the best dad for me and I am what am because of you. To Lydia my little sister I still stand on your words that you will never take liquor because I love you. I also dedicate this work to my only friend George who tireless provided for my advice and needs and Ben Asibo who has proved to be an exceptional friend through my university life. .
I feel overwhelmed with indebtedness to my brother and sisters Kivumbi Bantubalamu, Bukirwa Lydia and Kisakye Judith Nabbanja who also doubled as mum and dad. My hope and promise is to tolerate and persevere through thick and thin.
My warm thanks and appreciation go to my supervisor madam Hanifah Luwedde Kanyike for guiding me through this challenging task. On every session of our meetings, I learned a thing or two. I am proud to state that you nurtured me into a research maestro.
My heartfelt gratitude goes to my beloved friends Jonathan, Sarah, Christine, Bernard and even those that I have not mentioned, I am really grateful for the love and support you have provided I am very grateful.
This report incorporates a tremendous amount of effort by a number of organizations such as Kyambogo University and people, each of whom played an important role. I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude to my colleagues in Kyambogo University who offered not only their intellectual competence and dedication, but also their friendship during a very intense fieldwork. I also received great support from Ssenyi landing site. Finally, my greatest debt of gratitude is with the communities members of the sites who so sincerely and warmly offered their unmeasured hospitality in their villages and homes. Despite the interruptions that we caused in their daily routines, they shared their experiences and became my partners in research. I hope that this effort may someday soon make a small difference in their very difficult lives. To all these people, I reiterate my sincere thanks and acknowledge their respective contribution to my study. I can guarantee that any errors or misinterpretations found in this report are strictly the fault of the author.
