SIR â€” Since 1986, Buganda has registered many achievements. The Buganda kingdom has been reinstated, infrastructure rehabilitated and many properties returned to Buganda.
The task of conducting seminars by CBS Radio throughout the kingdom and abroad is commendable. Whereas I admire the Baganda for these things, a lot still needs to be done. Physical contributions are not enough. If the Baganda are still thinking of persuasion to regain their lost glory they should stop shunning fellow Baganda who fall from grace. They are still part of the struggle. If a person misbehaved once, it is the responsibility of the Baganda to advise him or her to ensure positive change. This will keep the kingdom in a better position.
I have noticed that the Baganda are reluctant to associate with their tribesmen who have fallen out favour with the central government. Such people include Dr Sulaiman Kiggundu, Mr. Aziz Kasujja, Maj Kakooza Mutale and Besweri Mulondo. Other tribes, I have noticed, stand by their tribesmen through thick and thin. even when such people are condemned by other tribes, they find solace in their tribesmen. This is a lesson that the Baganda need to learn. The same message is found in the Bible in the story of the prodigal son. Blood is thicker than water.
