Ouganda: Comment empêcher un Roi de se mêler de politique?!
He reiterated the need for a cultural law to regulate the cultural institutions.
In his own words:
"We need to strictly enforce the principle of separating cultural institutions from politics through enacting the cultural law."
"There is need to provide in the law that any gifts exceeding a certain magnitude should be declared to a government authority like IGG. Failure should attract penalties."
"In order to stop the kabaka and the Buganda Kingdom from meddling in politics, there should be a meeting of all leaders in the kingdom (Tabamiruka) to give contribution to the way forward."
"NRM government will implement the idea of the regional tier government next financial year without fail. We have waited for too long on this issue and we shall wait no longer"
"The standoff was not just about Kayunga or Buruli tensions, the real issue is whether we should have political kings wielding political authority. This concept is totally rejected by NRM because it is not democratic"
"I don’t care about monarchies. Ankole is thriving without a monarchy. Our view was that those who want it, let them have it as long as they follow the constitution."
"Its not the duty of kings to decide on land laws or federo. Some of the kings have been contrary to our original agreement. "
"Since Saturday, I have been trying to ring the kabaka again without success. The key for these issues is with him."
"We have got more important challenges affecting the country and we cannot be here talking about kings only"
