Buganda Kingdom has warned against the misleading social media messages and posts peddled by various propagandists to destroy Kabaka and Buganda.
There has been an outpouring of concern and well wishes for the health and wellbeing of Kabaka Ronald Mutebi II since the celebration of his 66th birthday on the 13th April 2021. During celebrations Kabaka’s subjects were outraged by his health condition in that he could easily breathe and on a sad note, he didn’t address them.
Katikkiro Charles Peter Mayiga has since come out to say that Kabaka is suffering from an allergic health condition caused by pollen, animal dander, dust mites and mold.
According to a press statement released by the press secretary to Kabaka, Dick Kasolo, the malicious falsehoods ranges from an allegations that the Kabaka had passed away last year or that he was admitted on an emergency basis to Nakasero Hospital a few days ago.
Kasolo said; “The falsehoods and malicious allegations are being instigated and spread by people who claim to love and be concerned about the Kabaka, whereas they are not.”
He said there are also pointed attacks against senior members of the Royal Family, the Katikkiro and officials of the Kabaka’s government as well as against eminent Buganda personalities.
“In fact there is a clear and discernible plot by those enemies of Buganda to use this opportunity to weaken the Kingdom by creating rifts amongst the people of Buganda and undermining the Kabaka’s officials, especially the Katikkiro, Charles Peter Mayiga and other Kabaka’s strong supporters,” Kasolo said.
“Do not lend a hand to the enemies of Buganda and Uganda by spreading false information which is intended to cause fear, alarm and undue excitement. The effort to weaken the Kingdom shall not succeed. The disguised, concern for the Kingdom should not deceive anyone,” he added.
