THE youth in Busoga sub-region under their umbrella association, Basoga Nseete, have blamed the 11 hereditary chiefs for failing to elect a Kyabazinga (king).

They said the chiefs had failed to use their constitutional mandate, and had instead been locked in infighting.

Speaking at the handover ceremony of instruments of power to the incoming leadership of Basoga Nseete Association at Crested Crane Hotel in Jinja on Saturday, Alupakusadi Terwanike, the new president, said it was sad that Busoga had no Kyabazinga. The theme of the ceremony was ‘Revival of Obwa Kyabazinga’.

“We have raised voices through our association but they have fallen on deaf ears. We are naïve, inferior and subjected to torture without a Kyabazinga,” Terwanike said.

He noted that was a shame for the Basoga not to have a traditional leader.

Julius Wambi, the outgoing president, said the association started in 2007 with an objective of promoting culture in higher institutions of learning.

Wambi said the association participated in the fight against sleeping sickness, elephantiasis and jiggers in Busoga, through outreach missions on preventive measures.

Jinja Municipality West MP Harry Kasigwa, who was the chief guest, called for unity among the youth in Busoga.

He warned them against being used by politicians during this campaign period to incite violence.
