THE Kabaka of Buganda, Ronald Muwenda Mutebi, has urged teachers and parents to get involved in developing the talents of their children.

Speaking at Summit College Kyengera in Wakiso district last Saturday, the Kabaka said developing talents among students would uplift their welfare and that of their families.

The Kabaka was speaking before awarding the school that won the Royal Family Shield trophy in the Buganda Royal Arts Shield Festival competition 2010.

“We are born with many talents but we don’t use them. That is one of the reasons why Africa is still behind. If we use our God-given talents well, poverty will be eradicated in our families,” the Kabaka said.

He commended the schools that participated in the festival, saying competition helps students become professionals in different fields. St. Peter’s Kyengera took this year’s royal family shield.

The Kabaka advised his subjects to immunise and educate their children, saying the country needs trained people, who can develop it.

A mammoth crowd gathered as the Kabaka’s convoy drove by. People struggled to get a glimpse of him as he waved through the open window of his car.

The Kabaka was accompanied by the deputy Katikkiro, Emmanuel Ssedaula, the kingdom spokesperson, Charles Peter Mayiga, and other kingdom officials.

Justine Bawande, a student from Trinity College Nabbingo, thanked the Kabaka for sponsoring development projects.

The kingdom’s education minister, Fred Masaazi, said starting next year, the kingdom would publish books that will inform students about different developments in the kingdom.

He also asked the Kabaka to start giving scholarships to students who excel in the Buganda Royal Arts Shield Festival.

On fighting global warming, Masaazi said the forestry department in the environment ministry gave the kingdom 40,000 trees to be planted in school in the Buganda region.
