A concerned Kabaka Mutebi on Tuesday met with all his former Kattikiros in his palace at Mengo, a meeting where Katikkiro Mayiga was also in attendance.
Sources that were in the meeting informed us that the Kabaka quizzed Mayiga on the rampant alleged allegations of corruption and general lack of transparency in Mayiga's administration as well as claims of dictatorship.
"The Kabaka was specifically upset when he examined documents and discovered that the actual cost of reconstruction of the Kasubi tombs was supposed to be Shs.3.5bn yet at the current budget of over Shs.10bn already used by the Mayiga administration, the tombs are still incomplete",one source said.
Mayiga had already got wind of the discussions in the palace before hand, and had reportedly paid up to 20 youths who came with placards at the entrance of Bulange.
This was in a bid to show that he still has support among the people of Buganda. This also annoyed the Kabaka who told off Mayiga, stating that it was not proper for individuals to abuse their offices and later blame their critics as enemies of the Kingdom.
In the Kasubi tombs documents, Kabaka learnt that during JB Walusimbi tenure he presented a 3.5bn budget . On this UNESCO contributed shs. 2.5bn and the Ugandan government also contributed an additional Shs3.5bn.
This was in addition to the Shs11bn that was raised from the Ettofaali fundraising drive.
The Kabaka was also not happy to learn that the incumbent PM has on several occasions received advice from his seniors but instead thrown it into the garbage. It’s reported that he had further more used the people in his social circles to attack and blemish the former Katikkiros.
It should be noted that just last month, Mr. JB Walusimbi and Muliika told NBS TV that they were worried about the direction of the kingdom as Mayiga was heading it to crush.
