Leaders in Buganda Kingdom are holding their annual retreat in Ndejje off Entebbe road. The retreat started this morning and will last two days. Ministers, Ssaza chiefs, and managers of Kabaka’s companies are attending.
In his opening address, Katikkiro Charles Peter Mayiga called upon Kabaka’s companies to support each other in order to develop and urged them to creating lasting mutually beneficial relationships. “We need to support each other and champion each other’s activities,” Mayiga said. “If Buganda Land Board is promoting Ekyapa Mu Ngalo, it is ideal that other companies support it in its efforts,” he added.
He informed the leaders in Buganda of the role they play in ensuring that the Kabaka delivers services to his people.
On Togikwatako, the Katikkiro said the Kingdom has already issued statements to the press and made an address to the Buganda Lukiiko and the position of the Kingdom is clear. On land matters, he said like most people, the Kingdom opposes any laws that take away people’s land without adequate and timely compensation.
He encouraged them to read books and other materials so that their brains are replenished. Like at each retreat, this year, he encouraged them to read Joan Mugenzi’s book “Corporates at Crossroads.” The book has had rave reviews regarding as it encourages people to think of what would happen if they lost their jobs.
