A section of legislators in the eleventh parliament have expressed overt Solidarity towards the Kabaka of Buganda His Majesty Ronald Muwenda Mutebi II following his 28th coronation remarks confirming the cultural position on the proposed land reforms.
The opposition Chief whip John Baptist Nambeshe says he feels motivated to see that even the Kabaka now has the courage to speak for his people. “I feel energized to see that even the Kabaka is ready to defend his people. At least as a whip, I have a starting point in quelling these oppressive reforms,” Nambeshe told media on Monday.
The Leader of opposition Mathias Mpuuga reiterates that all MPs despite their political denominations should join the noble cause of fighting for Buganda’s Mailo land which seems to be under threat from ill intentioned people in the central government.
“The Kabaka sounded a drum and it’s prudent for us to respond with affirmative action. These people think they own the country. We should not be silent on trivial issues,” he says. “It’s time to put our differences aside and work together on this land issue,” he adds.
On the same matter, Hon. Abed Bwanika of Kimanya Kabonera says, “On Mailo land issues we won’t be quiet. As MPs from Buganda we shall be at the forefront of fighting for our land.”
Juliet Nakabuye the Woman MP of Masaka City adds that: When the Kabaka speaks it is a directive to us in Buganda. We are expectant that even MPs from other regions will step up their efforts in fighting for what rightfully belongs to us.”
