The Katikkiro of Buganda Charles Peter Mayiga has today launched the new Buganda Heritage and Toursim Board headed by Mrs. Jane Nankabirwa Kabugo the IT consult of DFCU bank.

While launching the board, Katikkiro said that Tourism is about history because people come to see the installations and icons that depict the heritage of a given community of a given country, and in our case in BUganda a history of about a thousand years is very well depicted through the different sites and installation that we have in place and we believe that toursim can bring out that very well. And more so history defines what we are.
He added Tourism is about public relations, because through tourism the world gets to know about a given country, people and their ways of life and the kind of impression they get upon visiting that particular place is what may determine the foreigners that are going to dwell or even invest in that country. Therefore its important that we use tourism to promote public relations for the Kingdom and the country.
Among other benefits , Tourism also generates income.
