I trust the Kabaka but not Mr Museveni – Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago

Kampala lord mayor Erias Lukwago made his sentiments about President Museveni further known after the President met with the Kabaka of Buganda.

Yesterday saw the two influential figures engage in a meeting at State House Nakaseero.

The meeting was also attended by Katikiro Charles Peter Mayiga and Prince David Wasajja.

Mr Museveni said the two parties discussed matters of mutual interest as as was asserted by OM Charles Peter Mayiga.

“Held a meeting with His Majesty the Kabaka of Buganda Ronald Muwenda Mutebi II at Nakasero State Lodge. His Majesty was in the company of Owek. Charles Peter Mayiga and Prince David Wasajja. We discussed matters of mutual interest.” President Museveni tweeted.

It was clear however that the two figures main topic could have been the issue of mailo land with their two governments seeming at loggerheads.

President Museveni feels the land policies especially in Buganda should be reformed whereas the Kabaka sees this as an attack on the kingdom to weaken it’s influence.

It was from this that Lukwago while appearing on NBS TV’s Barometer on the 3rd of August 2021 said that he doesn’t think Mr Museveni will respect the agreements arrived at with the Kabaka.

This is according to Lukwago to the fact that the central government has never fulfilled some of it’s pledges to the Mengo government.

“Issues of ebyaffe (Buganda properties) are still pending. Mr. Museveni is being deceitful in handling it.I trust the Kabaka, but I don’t trust that Mr. Museveni will stick to the agreements made regarding Mailo land.” Lukwago said.

However according to Minister Haruna Kasolo who was also in the studios, he said that government has shown it’s willingness to engage people.

Unlike the previous governments, this one has shown the urgency to talk with people before making land reforms.

And with the Kabaka being the biggest landlord in Buganda, it was right for the government to engage him.

Mr Kasolo went ahead to say that the Kabaka had shown that it’s not wrong to meet the President as has been circulated over time.

Political analyst Charles Rwomushana also chimed in saying that the two leaders decided to meet to cool the blazing fire.

He added that however things could get more intense among the two governments.
