In his remarks, Katikkiro emphasized the people of Buganda to work hard as this will be the best solution to Buganda in its bid to be at the top of everything, such as health, education, social services among others.
He said there are a number of Buganda Kingdom’s properties and assets which are still under the control of the central government in which Buganda would have collected revenue to sustain itself. But Since Buganda needs to go further miles in development, we cannot wait when those assets will be returned back, we are only required to work hard, tirelessly so that we can develop our Kingdom. He added’
The traders urged the Katikkiro to deliver their message to Kabaka that they yearn to host him at Kikuubo because of the thirsty they have in him.
