Buganda kingdom monarch Kabaka Ronald Mutebi II was Monday secretly flown out of the country and is said to have travelled to Germany, although his departure was done quietly, without thousands of his loyal subjects knowing about it.
However, secrets why Kabaka Mutebi, who recently celebrated his 25th Coronation Anniversary, was flow to German have emerged.
We have since established that Kabaka Mutebi traveled to Germany with three high ranking kingdom officials and some palace helpers.
Although the Mengo establishment opted to keep Kabaka Mutebi’s travel to Germany a secret and have not revealed for how he will be there, our insiders in the palace reveal that there are two chief reason that could have prompted the Monarch to make such a lengthy journey.
According to insiders, the Kabaka is said to have gone on a short vacation during which he expected to hold meetings with several investors in a bid to attract them to invest their money in Uganda.
Others however contend that the Monarch is likely to have traveled to Germany on matters related to health and physical wellbeing.
It should be noted however that this is not the first time the Kabaka is travelling abroad without his subjects not knowing it.
Last year, he surprised many of his subjects in Buganda and all Ugandans after he made a surprise trip to Nairobi, Kenya, where he paid a courtesy call on President Uhuru Kenyatta and the Prime Minister Raila Odinga.
It should be noted that the Kabaka raised dust a few days ago after rallied all Baganda to rejects the government proposal to abolish Mailo land ownership.
The proposal by government to make reforms in the Act in a bid to abolish Mailo land ownership which was suggested by President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni, who reasoned that the reforms are aimed at protecting Bibanja land owners from being evicted by people who own Mailo titled on their land.
Actually, as a way of cooling the rage that was brewing among the Baganda over the matter, Kabaka Mutebi and President Museveni held a private meeting at the State Lodge, in Nakasereo, during which they discussed what the President referred to as ‘Matters of mutual interest’ to both of them and Uganda at large.
