Speaking at the ceremony shortly after commissioning the Presidential Skilling Industrial Hub for Greater Masaka sub-region at Ndegeya Village in Masaka city today, the President revealed that the former Kabaka of Buganda, Sir Edward Muteesa II was his very good friend and he was happy to note that even the current kingdom leadership has maintained the good and strong ties with the central government.

He said the kingdom has immensely contributed to the development of Uganda through taking part in the Central government’s efforts of transforming the country socially and economically.

The Kabaka of Buganda has on several occasions spear headed the fight against poverty through the different initiatives in the Kingdom like Emwanyi Telimba encouraging people to plant coffee so as to have what to sell.
