Buganda Kingdom has launched a four year strategic plan to develop soccer in the region at a colorful function presided over by the Vice President, Edward Kiwanuka Ssekandi. The function took place at Serena Kampala Hotel.
Princess Joan Nassolo represented the Kabaka of Buganda. In his message, the Kabaka extolled the role of football in uniting people especially the youth. “However, there is still a lot of work that needs to be done. We must not only promote football, we must ensure that other sports develop,” the Kabaka said.
He called upon the Ministry of Sports to turn the strategic plan from paper into activities which are realistic and achievable.
The Vice President welcomed the plan and the role Buganda plays in the development of sport and offered the government’s support.
Katikkiro Charles Peter Mayiga said that through sport, the Kingdom can exploit the potent force that is needed to position at its rightful place.
He called upon corporate companies to embrace the strategic plan by sponsoring the tournaments.
Buganda Kingdom organises the now popular Masaza Cup and Ebika Football Tournament among others. Kabaka Ronald Mutebi is expected to preside over the opening of the Ebika tournament on Nov 25, 2017.
