The Kabaka of Buganda His Royal Highness Ronald Muwenda Mutebi has donated 100m shillings to help in the fight against the Corona Virus.The Kabaka’s brother Prince Wasajja delivered the dummy cheque to the Prime Minister of Uganda Rt.Hon Ruhakana Rugunda today morning at the Prime Minister’s office in Kampala.
Sources inside Mengo say meetings have been going on for sometime between the King and Palace officials to see how Buganda and the Kabaka can come to the aid of Ugandans fighting against the COVID 19 as well as those suffering from the effects of this virus like hunger.
President Museveni last week called upon all Ugandans that wanted to help fellow Ugandans to get in touch with the Joint task force put in place headed by the Prime Minister.The Kabaka of Buganda joins a long list of people that have contributed to the task force.
Information we are gathering indicates that the 100m donation comes from the Kabaka as a person and Buganda as a Kingdom will contribute and the Katikiro of Buganda is expected to lead a delegation that will deliver Buganda’s donation.
Calls for Buganda as a Kingdom to come to the aid of its subjects in these challenging times had started getting louder on social media and mainstream media platforms like TVs but with Kabaka’s donation,many Baganda feel the King is surely with them and have moved to sing songs of Praise for him.
