The Kabaka of Buganda, Ronald Muwenda Mutebi II has thrown his weight behind a move to revive calls for a Federal System of government in Uganda.
He made the remarks during the Youth Day Celebrations at Kyaggwe in Mukono late last week.
Dozens of youth groups from different parts of Buganda turned up in large numbers to celebrate this important annual occasion with their cultural leader.
Kabaka was responding to Buganda Youth Chairperson Paddy Ssenkungu Kiganda who argued in his speech that the issue of Federal government was being neglected.
He said Buganda Kingdom needs to “do something about it” as a Federal system of government would lead to development of the central region and other parts of the country.
He also suggested that one of the MPs from Buganda should present a motion before Parliament seeking Federal System of government in Uganda.
Kabaka break silence
In response, the Kabaka observed: “Paddy Ssenkungu Kiganda touched on a very important issue of Federal system of government. I don’t take this suggestion lightly.”
He added: “Now that we are in the period of amending the Constitution, I don’t see why this issue can’t be given enough attention.”
The Kabaka asked parliament to give chance to those people who want to table a bill on federal system of governance.
The remarks of Kabaka forced Mukono North Member of Parliament Johnson Muyanja Ssenyonga to stand up and showed his support to kabaka’s words.
During the tabling of age limit bill in parliament Muyanja tried to table a bill on federal system of governance but the speaker of parliament Rebecca Kadaga did not give him a chance his bill to see light in parliament.
