Traffic and business in Masaka city were Saturday paralyzed as people jostled to have a glimpse of Kabaka Ronald Muwenda Mutebi II upon his arrival to officiate at the launch of 2022 Masaza Cup Football Tournament.
The Kabaka (king)arrived in the city at 2:30pm to the excitement of his subjects, most of whom had been waiting on the roadsides for hours as they braved the scorching sun.
Huge crowds lined on the streets of Masaka City , many yodeling, blowing whistles and vuvuzelas or waving, as the motorcade of the Kabaka snaked to Masaka Recreation Grounds.
Before arriving in Masaka City, the Kabaka made several stop overs in townships along the Kampala-Masaka highway, waving to his ecstatic subjects.
In Masaka City, he disembarked his car near Dfcu Bank branch and walked a distance of about 200metres to the venue.
At the Masaka Recreational Grounds, the Kabaka was welcomed by Buganda Premier (Katikkiro), Charles Peter Mayiga and Sports Minister Henry Ssekabembe Kiberu and he launched this year's tournament.
This year's opener was a Group B encounter between reigning champions Buddu and Mawogola, it kicked off at 3 pm at Masaka Recreational Ground and both teams settled for a goal-less draw.
