In short
The Kabaka told a massive crowd at Baale Sub county headquarters that Buganda will continuously foster a culture of non-discrimination among various ethnicities but stresses that other groups equally need to respect Buganda’s cultural values and its territory.

The Kabaka of Buganda Ronald Muwenda Mutebi II calls for reconciliation and unity among his subjects as he ends the first day of his historic visit to Bugerere County in Kayunga district.

He says the two virtues are the core for the kingdoms strength, might and victory.

The Kabaka told a massive crowd at Baale Sub county headquarters that Buganda will continuously foster a culture of non-discrimination among various ethnicities but stresses that other groups equally need to respect Buganda’s cultural values and its territory.

The Kabaka regretted the 2009 events in which his team was barred from crossing Ssezibwa into Kayunga.  He however adds that the people of Buganda have worked together to ensure that Buganda regains its territory and forgets such events.

He says today sights in Bugerere indicate that the county embraced unity in diversity considering the number of tribes that are living in harmony without visible differences.

Parents were also urged not to despair but to work hard and secure their children’s future.  The kabaka also challenged Buganda’s Young generation to work hard and create jobs through which the kingdom can earn money.

Earlier the Kabaka cut a tape at Ssezibwa Bridge to signify his triumphant entry into Bugerere, a county which the Banyara community initially claimed is not part of Buganda kingdom. The Sights and mood across the County were the opposite of what transpired in 2009.

As part of the historic Visit, the Kabaka visited mothers and Newborn babies at Kayunga Hospital where he distributed mosquito nets, Mattresses and testing kits to the patients.

He then visited a former member of the Buganda Lukiiko Kumaama Nsamba at whose farm he launched a silo for storing agricultural produce.

In Galiraaya Sub County, he visited Fred Mugarura’s Farm from which he was given six heads of cattle.

He finalized the day’s activities with an address to his subjects at Baale district headquarters.
