The monarch of Buganda kingdom his majesty Kabaka Ronald Muwenda Mutebi II has held a private meeting with President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni, at the State Lodge, Nakasero.
Kabaka Mutebi was accompanied to the private meeting by the Katikiro Owek. Peter Mayiga, Prince David Wasajja and a few other Buganda kingdom officials.
Although the matters that were discussed between President Museveni and Kabaka Mutebi were so private that they opted to keep them confidential, the President described them as ‘matters of mutual interest.’
