BUGANDA clan leaders (Abataaka) have been authorised to participate in organising Kabaka Ronald Muwenda Mutebi’s 9th coronation anniversary to be held in June. Edris Kisambira reports that the 52 clan leaders and their deputies met on Wednesday at Bulange, Mengo, to iron out the issue which threatened the success of last year’s celebrations in Mukono. The meeting was closed to the press. Jolly Lutaaya, the head of the committee said, “today’s main discussions centred on the inclusion of clan leaders on the committees that were launched by the Katikiro, Mulwanyamuli Ssemwogerere. This has been done to have clan heads fully involved in the preparations for the coronation anniversary.” Last year, the clan heads questioned why they were not party to the activities with some threatening to pull out of future anniversary celebrations. For this year’s celebrations to be held in the Lubiri, members also passed a proposal to have the 52 flags of the Buganda clans hoisted at Bulange during the occasion. It will be the first time since the restoration of the Kabaka that the flags are hoisted. Lutaaya told reporters after the meeting that the idea to have the flags flying was borrowed from the United Nations where all flags of member countries can be seen flying. Some of the committees to oversee the preparations include that on finance, exhibitions, entertainment, culture, building and construction. Ends
