President Yoweri Museveni has instructed the Ugandan Parliament to allocate Shs60 million monthly to all recognized cultural institutions for their smooth operation, as revealed by Deputy Speaker Thomas Tayebwa during the wedding reception of Kyabazinga William Gabula Nadiope IV and Jovia Mutesi.
Tayebwa affirmed Parliament’s commitment to implementing the president’s directive and urged the newlywed Kyabazinga to leverage Busoga’s positive influence for regional transformation.
Encouraging the Kyabazinga to capitalize on Busoga’s momentum, Tayebwa emphasized the collective effort needed to support and uplift the region’s economy.
Additionally, Prime Minister Joseph Muvawala announced plans for a commercial plaza construction post-wedding, aiming to generate revenue for the Kingdom.
President Museveni and others made significant contributions to the royal couple, including 20 cows from Museveni, 10 from his son Muhoozi Kainerugaba, and five from Deputy Speaker Tayebwa.
The directive encompasses various Ugandan Kingdoms, such as Buganda, Busoga, Tooro, Bunyoro, Rwezururu, Bamasaba, and Acholi, reflecting a broader commitment to cultural institutions across the country.
