The Buganda government on Saturday launched a campaign to sensitise the public on good leadership, culture, economic development and the federal system of governance.

The drive was launched at the Ssaza hall in Mityana town by the chairperson of the Buganda youth council, Joseph Kawuki. Present was Mityana South MP Ssozi Kaddu Mukasa.

Kawuki, who is also the commissioner for education in Buganda kingdom, said Kabaka Ronald Mutebi gave the order to sensitise masses on development to the youth.

“We have started from Mityana in Ssingo county, but we shall go to Kyaggwe at Mugulu on Saturday. We expect to cover other counties in the coming weeks,” he said.

He explained that the seminars would address the increasing immorality and help people to preserve their culture.

Kawuki said Buganda would sensitise the public on the federal system of governance first before Uganda goes into the East African Federation.

Speaking at the opening of the first seminar, Mukasa said the federal system of governance was the basis of good leadership.

“It respects the cultures of different societies. It is the only system which can ensure good leadership,” Mukasa explained.

He appealed to the public to avoid discrimination basing on political beliefs.

“Let us unite for development,” he said.
