However, the kingdom has been reeling in untold financial turmoil. This was reportedly caused by closure of CBS radio for a year and the torching of Kasubi tombs.

Sources in the kingdom say the two events have overshadowed the kingdom’s plans to raise money for the aircraft.

Kyanjo had argued that given the nature of his demanding job, the Kabaka badly needed a jet to fly him around his kingdom.

Kyanjo said the kingdom was targeting a $1.5m (Shs 3.5bn) chopper, but the figure would rise to Shs7bn including taxes.

“The idea came up as a result of the increasing need for the Kabaka to move more easily. He has a lot of work yet his kingdom is vast,” Kyanjo said then.

The legislator said they had even contacted a supplier in Canada, who had referred them to his regional agent in South Africa.

“The South African agent told us to get back to him with the specifications of the helicopter we want and, God willing, before June, the helicopter will be here,” Kyanjo said then.

Considering that Buganda has one million subjects, each was expected to raise only Shs7,000, according to Kyanjo.

It emerged over the weekend that even a television station Mengo intended to put in place by 2009 is still a dream.

Nevertheless, insiders reportedly blame the kingdom’s Premier J B Walusimbi for not taking the projects seriously.

With inflation soaring, time will tell whether Mengo will get their beloved cultural leader a helicopter.
