KABAKA URGES YOUTHS TO LEARN ABOUT THE VALUE OF LAND AND PROTECT IT.

10th November, 2017 was the Buganda Youth day. A day on which Buganda youth celebrate their achievements, reflect on their behavior, work, contribution towards Buganda and devise means to improve their livelihood .This day normally has the Kabaka of Buganda as the main celebrant.

The youth day ceremony which took place at Kyaggwe Ssaza headquarters, was preceded by a cultural gala among Nkobazambogo youths from different institutions of higher learning. The cultural gala was won by Buganda Royal Institute, which beat off competition from Muteesa I Royal University, Makerere University, Kyambogo University, Uganda Christian University, Bugema University, and Kampala International University. The winners were awarded 2 bulls.

Speaking at the function, the Kabaka of Buganda congratulated the youths upon reaching their day. He tasked them to research, read about land, understand its value and jealously protect it. This message was received with ululations from the youth. Most of them pledged to heed Kabaka’s advice on the matter.

For us at Buganda land board, we urge any youth with land to secure it by titling it, if they have a kibanja to secure their tenancy by registering with their landlord and paying Busuulu on their bibanja since by law, not paying Busuulu is the only way one can lose their kibanja.

The Kabaka also asked that since it is now fashionable to amend the constitution, those seeking to include federal in constitutional amendments should not be blocked. He said that many studies had proven that majority of Ugandans approve federal as the best way through which Uganda should be governed.

 

The ceremony ended at 3pm after the Kabaka had cut and served his people a cake.
