President Yoweri Museveni has donated 9 vehicles to the Kingdom of Busoga.
Two of the vehicles are for the Kyabazinga, His Highness Nadiope William, while the remainder are to be used by Busoga Kingdom Chiefs to help them in the running of the Kingdom’s day-to-day mobilization of the masses in various sectors for national development.
The hand-over ceremony that took place yesterday at State House, Entebbe, also saw a medical-ambulance vehicle donated to Bishop John Baptist Kaggwa of Masaka Diocese.
