Emorimor Augustine Osuban Lemukol, the Iteso Paramount Chief has launched a financial appeal for the Iteso Cultural Union.
Lemukol told URN that the Iteso Cultural Union-ICU is cash strapped and can\'t implement some of its intended activities.
In a bid to address the financial crisis, Lemukol wants each member of the Iteso Cultural Union to make an annual contribution of Shillings 1000.
//Cue in â€œSo the idea
Cue out â€œâ€¦ year.â€//
//Cue in: â€œIbore yen atamit
Cue out â€œâ€¦ noiâ€//
He however, didn\'t explain how the modalities of collecting the money. According to Lemukol, he currently uses part of his emolument from government to finance and pay employees at Iteso Cultural Union.
Each traditional leader is entitled to a monthly emolument of Shillings 5 million from the central government.
Lemukol\'s appeal comes a few months after the successful implementation of the Etofaali project by the Katikiro of Buganda Peter Mayiga.
Through the Etofaali project, Mayiga was able to generate billions of Shillings for the completion of Masengere plaza and Kasubi Tombs through individual contributions from Buganda loyalists, companies, schools and well-wishers amongst others.
He has embarked in a fresh drive to raise funds across the country for the implementation of other Kingdom projects.
