MUSEVENI ARRIVES AT BANDA TO MEET KABAKA
President Yoweri Museveni has this morning reached the Banda palace for a meeting with the Kabaka of Buganda, Ronald Muwenda Mutebi.
The agenda of the meeting remains a secret but sources within the presidency say part of the discussion could be centred around the issue of Kyadondo East legislator Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine.
Sources say, President Museveni is angered by Mengos continued silent support to Mr Kyagulanyi.
This is the first time Mr Museveni is visiting the Kabaka at his official residence. The presidents convoy arrived at the palace at about 11.30 am and he was received by the Kabaka himself.
It is true, the head of state has a scheduled meeting with the Kabaka and this meeting is special because instead of the usual way of Kabaka visiting State House, it is the president visiting the Kabaka. However, the discussion between the two is unknown to us but we suspect, the remarks made by the Katikiro over the arrests of Bobi and his colleges in Arua angered the president and the continued utterances by some people in Mengo have annoyed him and so this could be part of the reason he has opted for one on one with the king| a sources who spoke on anonymity told www.mknewslink.com .
In one of the press conferences at State House last year, journalists asked President Museveni on the remarks made by Katikiro Peter Mayiga concerning the arrests, and in reply, Gen. Museveni said that he would ring the Kabaka and find out what his Katikiro had said.
Sources further say that Mengos continued identification with the Kyadondo legislator on official functions graced by the Kabaka hasnt been received well within the Kampala establishment because this sends messages that Mengo is actually behind the singer turned politician.
