In his message delivered in Luganda the Kabaka wrote: ‘Tubakulisa nnyo okuyita mukiseera kyekisibo nga tumanyi nti eno y’emu ku mpagi enkulu mudini y’Ekiyisiramu. Ebyo byemubadde musaako essira gamba nga okusala Swala ezekiro, okuyamba abo abali mubwetavu obwengeri e’zenjawulo…’ the Kabaka’s message reads in part.
