The Katikkiro of Buganda Kingdom, Charles Peter Mayiga has revealed that the kingdom will not endorse any presidential candidate in the forthcoming 2021 elections because doing so will leave the people of Buganda divided.
“I am not going to endorse NRM, FDC, People Power, or any other party. If I endorse DP, how am I going to deal with those who don’t subscribe to that party yet they are all subjects of the Kabaka?” Mayiga said.
The Katikiro made this revelation on Thursday, May, 28 while appearing on an interview with a local television.
Mayiga also revealed that a lot of people had asked him to endorse particular candidates but he reasoned that their request wasn’t right.
Mayiga maintained that by endorsing a particular politician, it will divide the Kabaka’s subjects on political grounds which may affect the kingdom negatively according to him.
Similarly, Mayiga urged all the politicians who want to be supported by Buganda to pursue and support Buganda’s aspirations.
