Kabaka Ronald Muwenda Mutebi II has told his subjects not to lose hope in the face of many socio-political challenges they are currently facing.
The Kabaka emphasised that Buganda’s aspirations will be achieved with unity.
“This kingdom was built on a strong foundation of unity and oneness. It is this spirit that built the legacy of our ancestors, which this generation is challenged to preserve amid all the challenges,” he said.
The Kabaka was speaking at the belated celebrations of Buganda’s independence anniversary in Kabula County, Lyantonde District last week.
Buganda acquired semi-autonomous rule from British colonial rule on October 8, 1962. The kingdom fete was deferred to November 8.
The kingdom marked its anniversary with a series of bulungibwansi (community service) projects.
Kabaka Mutebi called for devotion to community service which he said is deep-rooted in Buganda’s culture.
Call for development
“We are sure that every one of us in his or her individual capacity has a role to play towards realising our goal of development,” Kabaka Mutebi said. The Kabaka also asked his subjects to improve the quality of coffee they grow so as to attract higher prices. The Kabaka, who spent three days in Kabula, toured various projects built by communities such as roads, dams and gardens.
