The meeting took place at State House Nakaseero and a number of issues were discussed, according to the Buganda Kingdom Premier, Charles Peter Mayiga.
The Kabaka was in company of PM Charles Peter Mayiga, Prince David Wasajja and Omutaka Namwama Augustine Mutumba.
The President took to his Twitter page to share the news saying they discussed matters of mutual interest.
“Held a meeting with His Majesty the Kabaka of Buganda Ronald Muwenda Mutebi II at Nakasero State Lodge. His Majesty was in the company of Owek. Charles Peter Mayiga and Prince David Wasajja. We discussed matters of mutual interest. I thank His Majesty the Kabaka of Buganda Ronald Muwenda Mutebi II for the courtesy call.” President Museveni tweeted.
The meeting came amid tensions between the central government and the Buganda kingdom government.
Apparently, the rift stems up from the mailo land policies which President Museveni seems not to be a great fan of.
Mr Museveni said that there should be reforms in the post 1900 colonial land reforms which placed land in the hands of the Kabaka especially in Buganda.
It’s a known notion that land in Buganda belongs to the Kabaka. People have to continuously pay tax for it despite fully purchasing it.
The President said this mailo land tenure system delays and hampers development.
Kabaka Mutebi however during his 28th coronation on Saturday said all those planning to change the mailo land system have bad intentions.
Furthermore, he questioned why these policies target only Buganda yet land wrangles are all over the country.
The Kabaka also went ahead to say that nobody should take advantage of Buganda’s friendly reception of outsiders as a weakness.
It’s however not clear what the two figures spoke about as the discussions were not divulged.
