BULANGE– Just a few days prior to the 26th coronation anniversary of Kabaka Ronald Muwenda Mutebi II, his subjects from Buganda have organized thanksgiving prayers to thank God for their King’s reign over the Kingdom.
The coronation anniversary is slated to take place on July 31, 2019 and will mark 26 years of Kabaka Mutebi on the throne. The celebrations will take place at Nkumba University grounds in Entebbe.
The Kingdom’s Attorney General and Local Government minister, Owek. Christopher Bwanika, said that the Baganda from various religions have decided to spare some days to pray for Kabaka and thank God for his life.
“As part of the preparations for the function, in this very week, there will be praising, praying and thanking God for the protecting our Kabaka and Buganda kingdom as a whole over these 26 years”, he said.
He noted that prayers will start with the Muslims on Friday, July 26, Adventists on Saturday 27, Born Again Christians, Protestants and Catholics on Sunday 28.
Owek. Bwanika has also urged Buganda local leaders to mobilise Kabaka’s subjects to get involved in activities of the event.
“It is the responsibility of the Abaami from all Buganda regions to cooperate with local people whom they lead to take part in activities like cleanup exercises and renovating the Palace as we prepare for the anniversary”, he said.
Mr Bwanika added that on this year’s coronation anniversary, Kabaka Mutebi has decided to start the initiative of constructing houses for the needy people.
“On this very day, the Kabaka will be handing over a house to a Hajji who broke his back yet he has a family to take care of,” he added.
He revealed that the initiative of helping these people is to continue.
This year’s coronation anniversary runs under the theme ‘Leadership of value in boosting health and education.’
It therefore targets and highlights what the Kabaka has achieved in these 26 years through boosting health by treating people and organizing free medical check-ups for HIV/Aids, Hepatitis B, Sickle Cells, and Eye diseases among others.
This has been achieved in collaboration with Health of Ministry and the Kabaka Foundation.
