Government and Buganda have agreed that all pending issues involving the Kingdom’s property be resolved soon.
The resolution was made on Tuesday when President Yoweri Museveni visited Kabaka Ronald Muwenda Mutebi at his Palace in Banda.
The pending issues, according to a brief statement by the Presidents’ press secretary Don Wanyama includes land and financial arrears.
The Kabaka and the President last met in August 2018 at State House, Entebbe when Asante King Asantehene Otumfuo Nana Osei Tutu II came to Uganda.
However, in September the same year, Museveni, while addressing the media on the country’s state of security promised to meet the monarch to discuss the content of a speech made by Buganda premier Charles Peter Mayiga in regards to Museveni’s ‘behaviour’ towards a specific group of people alleged to be eyeing the presidency.
During the Arua chaos-Bobi Wine saga, the premier while addressing the Buganda Parliament said that violence and intimidation by government agencies will not deter the opposition’s quest for power, thus calling for talks between president Museveni and those seeking power in order to de-escalate tensions.
“I will look for the Kabaka so that he tells me what that Katikiro of his was saying,” Museveni said.
