His Majesty the Kabaka of Buganda Ronald Muwenda Mutebi II has today launched a book, ‘THE BRAVE KING’ by Patrick Makumbi at Bulange Mmengo.
The book highlights Kabaka Sir Edward Muteesa II’s strength and determination during the struggle for Uganda’s independence and the way how he was exiled.
The book also centers on Muteesa’s two exiles. The first exile was imposed by the colonial power in 1953 when they deported Him to the UK until His triumphant return to the throne in1955.
The second and final exile occurred in 1966 when he was head of state of independent Uganda and escaped after a fierce battle at His palace where he was attacked by a battalion commanded by army chief Idi Amin Dada on the orders of coup maker and prime minister Milton Obote.
While launching the book, Kabaka Mutebi highlighted the importance of keeping the records and history of Buganda for the benefit of the future generation.

The 3rd Deputy Katikkiro and Buganda’s minister for constitutional affairs, Apollo Nelson Makubuya said that the book highlights how the people of Buganda worked together to see that King Muteesa II returns from the exile and the issues that led to the decline of Buganda hence descending from the helm.
The author Mr. Patrick Makumbi is a well exposed and experienced public administrator. In the book, he gave his own perception and opinion of the situation in Uganda and the future of Buganda, which not just a Kingdom, but by translation, oneness, brotherhood. He said he was influenced by his father Thomas Makumbi as one of the brains behind the author of the book.

His Majesty the Kabaka of Buganda Ronald Muwenda Mutebi II has directed leaders at all levels in the Kingdom to exercise good governance.
He asked them to avoid turning into rulers but exhibit leadership based on dialogue and amicable negotiations.
His Majesty was speaking at the annual Buganda Local Government Day celebrations held at Gombe Sub County, Kyaddondo Wakiso district.
This year’s celebrations were marked under the theme, ‘Strong, truthful and democratic leadership at all levels’
Chiefs from all Counties of Buganda led the delegation that matched before the Kabaka, carrying banners and traditional drums that were surrendered to the royal regalia.
The Ssaza (County) chiefs donated gifts to the Kabaka that included food items, goats, and cows among others.
His Majesty explained that, “The theme of this function should be understood in its true context; leadership means leading the way, managing and guiding others in order to achieve your goals,”
He further explained that leadership is about understanding each other and listening to one another.
Leadership is not about ruling, which has no space for dialogue
“In Buganda we always cherish dialogue and we should therefore emphasize strong and firm leadership based on dialogue and resolving issues amicably,” he added

He handed over prizes including cash to the winner of the 2015 Buganda farming competition, Bashir Mayiga (28yrs) from Buddu County and Patrick Luwagga Mugumbule, whose Kyaddondo county emerged the best in good practices for development initiatives.

The Katikkiro of Buganda Charles Peter Mayiga said the chiefs should play a leading role and guide their people on how to move forward in terms of development.
He said the Kabaka directed them to strive to revive agriculture and livestock farming as one of the strategies to fight poverty and asked the youth especially to love and engage in farming in order to accumulate wealth.
