THE Vice President Gilbert Bukenya has told the Baganda agitating for federo that the kingdom cannot live in isolation.

In a message posted on his website, the Vice President said although he is a strong supporter of the Kabaka and the Buganda kingdom, he is also a strong supporter of the Democratic Republic of Uganda.

“Whatever we aspire to achieve must be supported by other Ugandans. We cannot work in isolation. Friends, alone we can do so little but together we can do so much,” Bukenya wrote.

“Why can’t we live in harmony, love each other, respect each other and stop abusive language and the feeling that you are the only one.”

He appealed to the Baganda to not only focus on their interests but also show concern and respect for the interests of other Ugandans.

“We, the Baganda must know that we live in Uganda with other people of the same rights. When we demand, they also have a right to demand.

“When we destroy their properties, they also have a right to do so. Let us stop inciting hatred and confrontation. The innocent suffer and even die,” he said.

A total of 27 people died in the riots last month by Kabaka supporters who protested the Government’s objection to the king’s visit to Kayunga citing security reasons. He warned his fellow Baganda against the quest for political power for the Kabaka.

“We have to leave political power to the elected leaders of Uganda and cultural power to the kings and other cultural leaders.”
