Days back we informed you about how events organiser and music promoter Balaam Barugahara had started up a fundraising campaign to save vocalist Jackie Chandiru who desperately needed advanced medical attention and rehabilitation in the bid of transforming the later from the hard times she was enduring under drug abuse.

 In company of the Gospel Story Teller (Pastor Wilson Bugembe) and the Uganda Musicians Association (UMA), the former started collecting financial support from the former Blue*3 member's fans, friends and family to raise a given amount of money to take care of Jackie's medical bills after escaping from Naguru hospital.

However, the CEO Radio 4 has on Wednesday 18th September come out with an accountability of the little financial help he and his colleagues had collected to better Jackie Chandiru's life after deciding to conclude the fundraising campaign immaturely on grounds that a well wisher from the 'Toli Superman' singer's getting interest in her quick recovery hence being ready to take over her entire medication.

Balaam has also revealed how him and the 'Kaani' singer had cleared Chandiru's pending hospital bill totalling to 2,400,000Ugx at the Recovery Solutions Treatment and Counselling Center, Zaana where she had been receiving treatment ever since escaping from Naguru hospital. 

"Dear friends,

This morning I was informed that a well wisher through her family has taken up Jackie's medical and recovery bill 100% . However some of you had already sent PastorWilson Bugembe financial contribution totalling to 550,000/= He has refunded it .
