Busoga premier Joseph Muvawala, who is also the National Planning Authority-NPA executive director, on Monday rallied members within the 11 chiefdoms of Busoga to embrace the Busoga kingdom institution as a driver of unity and development within the sub region. 

Addressing journalists ahead of the coronation anniversary of His royal highness, Gabula Nadiope IV slated for 13th September, Muvawala argued that if subjects boldly support the activities set out by the kingdom, it will not only market the kingdom nationwide but, will also foster unity among the people from different chiefdoms within the sub region. 

The scientific event which president Yoweri Museveni is expected to grace  as the chief guest will be held at the kingdom’s palace in Bugembe ward of Jinja city under tight observance of the covid19 standard operating procedures. 

Muvawala observed that some renowned political players in the sub region have made it a habit to shun kingdom related activities.  However, if the subjects continuously display royalty to the kingdom-related affairs, they will automatically attract them to selflessly embrace the institution. 

He further challenged subjects to desist from insulting kingdom officials,  cautioning that such behavior undermines the integrity and sovereignty of the kingdom.

Meanwhile, Busoga kingdom’s foreign affairs minister, Joan Machola stresses that dignitaries from the neighboring kingdoms will not physically attend the function due to Covid-19 related restrictions. However, the event will be streamed live on both zoom and other social media platforms with free access for all interested parties.
