Delegates from the 64th Commonwealth Parliamentary Conference Visit Buganda Kingdom Head offices Bulange
Delegates attending the 64th Commonwealth Parliamentary Conference (CPC) have been urged to invest in different projects in the Buganda Kingdom. The call was made by Buganda Prime Minister Charles Peter Mayiga on Wednesday.
The delegation from Canada, Pakistan, Fiji, India, Gambia, Australia and South Africa which was led by Speaker of Johor State in Malaysia, Suhaizan Bin Kaiat, on Wednesday visited Lubiri Palace and the Kingdom’s Administrative centre, Bulange-Mengo.
They were taught the Palace norms, culture and visited the former armory of the late President Iddi Amin Dada and the Katikkiro of Buganda Charles Peter Mayiga took the delegates through the Kingdom’s history and the role of the Buganda Lukiiko or Parliament.
The Katikkiro told the group that the Kingdom values integrity detests corruption and is in need of investors to realise revenue that can be invested to improve the lives of the subjects.
The Second Deputy Katikkiro Robert Waggwa Nsibirwa also informed the delegates about the available investment opportunities in the Kingdom citing the availability of 230 acres within the Lubiri Palace in which they plan to build a teaching hospital, new Palace, education institutions and others.
Owek. Nsibirwa also noted the completion of a master plan that will see the establishment of a cultural village on 10 acres to further the Kingdom’s biggest tourist attractions of culture and heritage and hinted about the Kingdom’s master plan of setting up a Children and Women Hospital and a Youth Training Centre on 15 acres along Entebbe road.
One of the delegates Adilitia Oionibaravi from the Parliament of the Republic Fiji expressed interest to learn more about the Kingdom and Uganda so that she and other delegates may consider replicating what they have learnt.
