The Prime Minister of Uganda Rt.Hon. Robbinah Nabbanja has given the greenlight to the organisers of the famous Nyege Nyege Festival to go ahead with the event.
Nabbanja’s directive follows squabbles from some Members of Parliament, who for reasons known to them, if not greed, wanted to block Nyege Nyege Festival from happening.
We have established that the through the Prime Minister, government has okayed Africa’s most anticipated festival, Nyege Nyege to happen from the 15th to the 18th of September at the Itanda Falls, in Busoga Kingdom.
Listening to the plight of Ugandan youth who only not only look forward to making merry but also making money from the mega festival, Nabbanja, who will also officiate the festival, gave the event organizers a go ahead with preparations for the upcoming festival which is due in 8 days.
The festival serves as a tourism, social and economic hub for thousands of Ugandan youths who not only come together to have fun but also trade in arts, culinary, culture and music experiences.
