THE Kabaka of Buganda, Ronald Muwenda Mutebi, has built a four-room house for a 58-year-old widow whose house was swept away by heavy rains last year. The Kabaka met Aida Nanyondo outside her leaking and old kitchen last year when he was touring Lyantonde district. He offered to build her another house.

Nanyondo looks after her six grandchildren, whose parents died of HIV/AIDS. The sh7.2m house was built in collaboration with the Lutheran World Federation, a religious organisation that assists orphans, widows and needy people in the area.

The Buganda minister for local government, Jolly Lutaaya, represented the Kabaka during the handover of the house on Wednesday at Rwamayongo village in Lyantonde Rural sub-county.

In addition, the Lutheran federation gave Nanyondo beddings, utensils and other household items. The house has a kitchen, pit latrine and a bathroom.

Lutaaya said the Buganda were willing to overwhelmingly vote for President Yoweri Museveni if he grants Buganda federo and returns the 9,000 square miles.

“Why can’t we ask him to continue ruling if he gives us what we demand for? Every person in Buganda would be happier and vote for him again if he met our demands.

“We thank him for what he has given us. But we still demand more. Tell him to give us what we want,” Lutaaya said. He was responding to the Lyantonde LC5 chairman, Fred Nayebare Kyamuzigita, who blamed Mengo for allowing ‘self-seekers’ to use the Central Broadcasting Station to attack the President.

Nanyondo said she was overwhelmed with joy after having lost hope. She also pealed for assistance for the other school-going children.
