Ronald Muwenda Mutebi, the Kabaka of Buganda has called for power sharing to enable cultural institutions run their own affairs. Mutebi made the call while opening, the 19th session of the Lukiiko at Bulange Mengo today.

//Cue in: Okugabana Obuyinza…”
Cue out:…. Applause.”//
The Kabaka’s call for power sharing is a reiteration of the constant demands by Buganda to govern itself under the Federalism type of governance. The Kabaka also called for uplifting health standards in Buganda, promoting education so that the educated can step up to the technology world.
He urged the Lukiiko to discuss means of improving the financial status of its people, creation of jobs for graduants and get markets for local farmers. The Kabaka further emphasized the need to promote the cultural norms and rebuild the Kasubi tombs and to protect and properly utilize their land.
While launching the cultural Buganda drum known as Unite Buganda, Mutebi called on his subjects to unite and love one another, if Buganda is to achieve its goals. Outside the Lukkiko, the Vice President Edward Sekandi said they will have to rally support for Buganda and also discuss the power sharing issue with the central government to forge a way forward.
Kawempe North MP Latif Sebagala also a member of the Buganda caucus said that the Kabaka’s call is an eye opener for the caucus to find means of how Buganda can work closely with the Central government. The Buganda caucus heads for a retreat on the 9th of December to discuss among others issues raised by the Kabaka.
