The Kabaka of Buganda Ronald Muwenda Mutebi II has directed leaders at all levels in the kingdom to exercise good governance.
 
He asked them to avoid turning into rulers but exhibit leadership based on dialogue and amicable negotiations.

The Kabaka was on Saturday speaking at the annual Buganda Local Government Day celebrations marked at Gombe Sub County headquarters in Wakiso district.

He was received by the Katikiro, Charles Peter Mayiga.

This year's theme was 'Strong, truthful and democratic leadership at all levels'.  

Chiefs from all the 20 counties of Buganda led delegations that matched before the Kabaka, carrying banners and traditional drums that were later surrendered to the royal regalia.

 
The Saza chiefs also donated gifts to the Kabaka that included cows, food items, cash, among others.     

"The theme of this function should be understood in its true context: leadership means leading the way, managing and guiding others in order to achieve your goals," Kabaka explained.

The Kabaka, also referred to as Namunswa, Kyukyu, Sseggwanga, Musota, explained that leadership is about understanding each other and listening to one another.

"Leadership is not about ruling, which has no space for dialogue. In Buganda we always cherish dialogue and we should therefore emphasize strong and firm leadership based on dialogue and resolving issues amicably," he explained.

Leaders should be role models to the young generation and before the public, the Kabaka said. He handed over prizes including cash to the winner of the 2015 Buganda farming competition, Bashil Mayiga (28) from Buddu County and Patrick Mugumbule, whose Kyadondo county emerged the best in good practices for development initiatives.

According to David Mpanga, the local government minister in the Mengo cabinet, this year's celebrations were preceded by a number of activities including a medical camp and law awareness bazars organized in conjunction with Justice Centers Uganda, Mengo and the Young Professional Lawyers' Association.

Mayiga said the chiefs should play a leading role and guide their people on how to move forward in terms of development.

He said the Kabaka directed them to strive to revive agriculture and livestock farming as one of the strategies to fight poverty and asked the youth especially to love and engage in farming in order to accumulate wealth.
