Preparations are in high gear as people of Busoga prepare to celebrate the much anticipated Kyabazinga day.

The day has been celebrated every February 11th since 1939 when 11 hereditary chiefs from the chiefdoms that make Busoga kingdom adopted the title of Kyabazinga as the titular head of all the royal chiefs.

The name Kyabazinga at adoption meant someone who unites all the chiefs and their subjects in Busoga and the day remains memorable to all people in Busoga.

The chairman of the organizing committee for this year’s celebrations, Owek Richard Mafumo, while addressing journalists at the kingdom headquarters in Bugembe-Jinja on Tuesday evening confirmed that preparations are moving steadfast to have the day successfully remembered.

“It’s true that we have not been celebrating the day since the former Kyabazinga Henry Waako Muloki died because immediately after his death, there was a six year long impasse of who takes the throne and even when the legitimate Kyabazinga was enthroned, he first moved abroad to pursue further studies. But now that he is fully on his land, we can’t miss it” Mafumo said.

According to the organizer, this year’s Kyabazinga day will be held at Namutumba district headquarters in the hereditary chiefdom of Busiki under the theme, “Obusoga Okwisanhia N’amaani” literally meaning unity is the strength of Busoga.

Flanked by the information minister Andrew Ntange and security minister Moses Balidawa Ngobi, Mr Mafumo said that the celebrations will be proceeded by numerous activities including a medical camp where people will be screened and treated of different illnesses freely, agricultural exhibition especially on methods of farming that can help farmers withstand the current weather variations and dry spells, culture and tradition exhibitions and wrestling among others.

“We have extended invitations to numerous people our leaders inclusive to come and celebrate with our Kyabazinga and we shall use the forum to address pertinent issues in our area” he added.
