NAIROBI – The King of Buganda Ronald Muwenda Mutebi II has August 21,2020 paid a courtesy visit to the President of Kenya Uhuru Keyatta.
Contrary to online reports that he is unwell, the Kabaka is in Kenya for an annual two months leave.
The Head of State and the visiting cultural leader discussed subjects of mutual interest among them the central role of culture in regional integration and peaceful communal co-existence.
Rumours have been making rounds that the Kabaka had checked in a Nairobi hospital at the weekend. But Buganda Kingdom Prime Minister came out earlier in the week to dismiss the rumours, allaying any fears that the Kabaka was unwell.
President Museveni on Thursday night said the police would arrest those who hd originated such an acidic rumour on social media.
“Why do you go to social media to announce death of person?” The President asked, adding that the police would trace such people “who will be dealt with”.
After the coronation anniversary celebrations at the Mengo Palace, Kabaka Mutebi appeared at the Ministry of Internal Affairs to update his diplomatic passport to enable him take this break.
“After that he drove to Kenya. President Uhuru Kenyatta gave him some of his presidential guards who picked him from Malaba,” the Watchdog Uganda reported on Thursday August 20.
