IF the 1977 Historical Monuments Act is not reviewed, the Kasubi Tombs arsonist, if caught, will be fined only sh2,000.

Members of the Uganda Society of Architects want the law reviewed so that it can adequately protect cultural sites and monuments.

“We should have a stronger statute to protect cultural sites and monuments,” Flora Runumi of the architectural registration board said.

The architects had paid a courtesy call on the Buganda kingdom prime minister, Eng. John Baptist Walusimbi, at his offices in Bulange.

They were led by the society’s president, Enock Kibbamu, who presented a sh2m cheque towards the restoration of the tombs.

The World Heritage site, set ablaze on March 16, housed 139 years of Buganda’s history and the remains of kabakas Muteesa I, Mwanga II, Daudi Chwa II and Sir Edward Muteesa II, father of the reigning king, Ronald Muwenda Mutebi II.
Nine weeks since the tombs perished no arrests have been made.
