Kabaka Mutebi opens 20th Buganda Lukiiko
By Jeff Lule
THE Kabaka of Buganda Ronald Muwenda Mutebi II today opens the 20th Lukiiko (Parliament) at Bulange Mengo in the capital Kampala.
He is expected to arrive at Bulange at around midday. Hundreds of Buganda loyalists have already lined up along the Kabaka Njagara road to welcome the Kabaka.
Kabaka Mutebi opens the Lukiiko once every year after the coronation anniversaries.
The Kabaka is to guide the Lukiiko on how to address Buganda’s challenges like poverty, youth unemployment and the unknown rampant fires destroying cultural sites among other key issues.
Last month Bwanika House was burnt down at Naggalabi Coronation Site. This came three years after fire gutted Kasubi royal tombs. Kasubi tombs housed the remains of four fallen Buganda great kings.
