The Katikkiro of Buganda Charles Peter Mayiga is set to visit Busoga Kingdom in his on-going campaign to collect funds for the reconstruction of Kasubi tombs.

Buganda Kingdom spokesperson Denis Walusimbi Sengendo told New Vision that the Katikkiro was invited to Busoga by the Baganda living there and the local Basoga.  

Sengendo, however, said he was out of office to tell the date Mayiga will be going to Busoga. But a source in Busoga said Mayiga was expected in Busoga on March 22.

“Preparations for the Katikiro’s visit are on-going and announcements are running on different radio stations, asking the Baganda to attend preparation meetings,” the source said. 

Mayiga has visited most of the counties in Buganda on the campaign and has collected millions of shillings from Buganda Kingdom’s loyalists and sympathisers.

Recently the Katikkiro travelled to Ankole in Western Uganda where he met the Baganda living there who also raised millions of shillings for the cause.    

The tombs which were burnt by unknown assailants in 2010 are currently under construction.
