Buganda King Celebrates 66th Birthday With Only 200 In Attendance

The King of Buganda has today celebrated his 66th birthday. This was under the theme Youth To Take Lead In Fight Against HIV/AIDs. It was held at Lubiri Mengo, the home of Buganda. These celebrations were not as huge as they usually are due to the pandemic.

The kingdom invited only a maximum of 200 people to join the Kabaka in his celebrations.

In the past years, the kingdom hosted the Kabaka birthday run. These are usually to solicit for money for health purposes.

This year however, this run didn’t take place due to coronavirus. We can say the celebrations were not even half of what usually goes down.

Even so, a number of dignitaries graced the King’s 66th birthday function, both religious and political leaders. The Vice president, Edward Sekandi represented the president.

They also gave out a number of accolades at this function to five people who have assisted in raising the name of the kingdom. Among these was musician, Annette Nandujja who is a well-known moral based singer.

Also to note, the Kabaka didn’t speak to his people as he usually does. The prime minister of Buganda delivered the kabaka’s message.

He encouraged people to get vaccinated against Covid 19. Also, they revealed their intention of making Buganda great again in the country.
