Uganda: Tombs to be reconstructed

Charles Peter Mayiga   plans on helping and restructuring the Kasubi royal tombs and re-capturing the kingdoms assets that the central government is currently retaining. Such a move can cause problems between the Buganda and the Ugandans.

Just last week reconstruction of the royal tombs tock place and since Mayiga’s mission started the mission has been gaining momentum.   The royal tombs are a world cultural heritage site.

 A mysterious fire in March 2010 has burnt down four of the Buganda’s former kings tombs which later caused a few protests among the Buganda. Fund raising was implemented and the government has chipped in with a Shs 2bn for restructuring.

After the burning of the tomb there has been a fair amount of interest in the reconstructing of the tombs for the Buganda Kingdom. This has brought about a notice that only the interest of the Buganda people will keep the culture alive.

Only two months ago Katikkiro Mayiga implemented a fresh new plan to raise Shs 3bn to build a perimeter wall around the treasures now being rebuilt. He hope that the building will be completed by March 16th,2014

Over the past few months the drive for the rebuilding of the tombs has been able to bring about a Shs 738m.

The roads of Kasubi where awash with a great deal of people as they all came out to praise the kingdom in which they were in support of Mayiga’s campaign.

Supporters showed their support by bring bricks and some parted with money as this was all going to be used to help rebuild some of the structures. Mayiga swore that not a brick or ounce of cement would be lost.

According to a member of the tombs reconstruction committee named Charles Sserugga Matovu  the kingdom has been able to obtaine all the needed funds for the reconstructing of the buildings.

“Its construction is moving on as planned, and the new drive we are spearheading has nothing to do with its restoration” implemented Sserugga.

Katikkiro Mayiga is overwhelmed with the construction that has taken place so far.

Amazed by the speed in which the construction  is taking place and the pase at which it is going Mayiga plans of extending the mandate of the Gwanga Mujie committee to cover other stalled projects.
