EDUCATION minister Geraldine Namirembe Bitamazire lost her temper last week during the commissioning of an Internet Centre and a classroom block at St. Kalemba S.S. in Kayunga district. This was because Kayunga DEO, Muhammad Galiwango described her as one of the long serving ministers in the NRM government. â€œIt is not true when people say I am among the long serving ministers in the NRM government. Before being a minister I was a commissioner in the education ministry for over 10 years and not a minister as you are alleging,â€ a furious Bitamazire countered.
A journalist has to arrive early at the place of assignment. This was the case during the closing of a three-day Buganda Cultural Exhibition held at Kalagala falls in Kayunga on Saturday. The Kabaka of Buganda Ronald Muwenda Mutebi officiated at the the closing of the ceremony but he did not address the thousands of exhibitors who participated. instead he ordered Katikiro Dan Muliika to address the people. this did not please the scribes who had waited from morning to evening to hear a word from the Kabaka. But the elders (abataka) who attended the function told them., â€œThe Kabaka doesnâ€™t just talk like that, that is why he has the Katikiro.â€ The poor scribes went away crestfallen.
DURING the official closing of a three-day Buganda Cultural Exhibition held at Kalagala falls in Kayunga last week RDC margaret Balyehuki adressed the Kabaka while standing. In Buganda, it is a sign of disrespect for a woman to do so. During the function all the women, including MPs, knelt but Balyehuki did not. When scribes contacted her after the function she told them that her legs were hurting and that was why she did not kneel while addressing the Kabaka. This caused a lot of laughter.
The Katikkiro of Buganda, Dan Muliika does not eat in cheap restaurants. While opening the Buganda Cultural Exhibition at Kalagala in Kayunga last week, he declined to take lunch in a hotel in Kayunga saying â€œKayunga hotels were below his standardsâ€. he instead ate his lunch at MP Ssevume Musokeâ€™s home.
