At the function, the Katikiro has warned Baganda who have made it tendency of asking him to pressurise the government to give Buganda Federal governance to first uplift their personal standards of living.


“In very many areas I have been visiting, people have been asking me to advocate for Federal but will it pay tuition for your child or will it bring you food? I know federal governance more than you do, so you should not tell me such again. I have written many books about Federal, so you should work first and then mind the Federal later.”


He further cautioned all youth work hard so that they may become successful as most prominent Kampala businessmen.


He clarified that most businessmen in Kampala started from humble backgrounds but due to their patience, they have become successful.

He lastly called upon all traders to be more trustworthy in their businesses by avoid cheating their customers through the sale of counterfeit goods.
