Take On The Pearl, the domestic tourism campaign by Uganda Tourism Board, had a third trip that saw the winner Findlay Adams enjoy an all expense trip to Lake Bunyonyi, Kabale. She enjoyed an action packed weekend which included zip-lining, hiking, bird watching, swimming, boating, island hopping, silent disco, cultural performances and an epic Indepedence Day celebration at the Birdnest Resort featuring entertainment by Anne Kansiime, Daniel Omara, Pulse Band, Shine Omukiga, Mad Rat and Chiko. 

Lake Bunyonyi (‘place of many little birds’) is one of the most scenic lakes in Uganda located in south-western Uganda between Kisoro and Kabale close to the border with Rwanda.  Lake Bunyonyi is the second deepest lake in Africa, its contorted shore encircles 29 islands, surrounded by steep terraced hillsides. Bunyoni is bilharzia, croc and hippo free making it safe for swimmers. Lake Bunyonyi is popular for its green and lush terraced hills that are punctuated with a plethora of over 200 bird species making it a perfect place for bird enthusiasts. The area is also underlined by various nature hikes, all of which offer more than just nature and pleasure. A sense of traditional culture is also felt during the community walks, since one can get stop overs at the Bakiga Cultural museum as well as the blacksmith sites. For more cultural adventures, one can also visit the village of Bufuka for Batwa and Bakiga experiences.

UTB’s CEO, Lilly Ajarova commented that the Take on the Pearl campaign aims to create awareness and educate Ugandans on the various tourism destinations around the country; with emphasis on What? When? How? Who? And Where to Travel. She concluded by encouraging all Ugandans to love and travel Uganda and enjoy the Pearl of Africa.

Top Police authorities are slated to meet the Katikkiro of Buganda Charles Peter Mayiga this morning to tackle the security raid on a thanksgiving function organized by the Mbogo clan head, and religious leaders at Mugulu in Mityana town over last weekend.

Mobogo Clan head, Kayiira Gajuule had invited Bishop Emeritus John Baptist Kaggwa the retired Bishop of Masaka Diocese to grace the thanksgiving ceremony when anti-riot police stormed the area and sprayed teargas to disperse everyone.

This incident has since drawn widespread criticism from both Buganda kingdom loyalists who have since marched to Bulange Mengo demanding an apology from the Police besides the public condemning police actions

Just yesterday afternoon,. Police were forced to use teargas and live bullets to disperse a group of Buganda loyalists at Mityana municipality protesting the incident and demanding that District Police Commander, Alex Mwine Mukono unconditionally releases all the motorcycles he confiscated during the raid.

This compelled the police boss IGP Martin Okoth Ochola to apologize to the bishop and the Catholic Church.

The police political commissar led by a team of senior officers announced that they would be visiting Bishop Kaggwa at his home to announce their apology to his family and the church on behalf of IGP Ochola .

On Monday, the police spokesperson Fred Enanga apologized to the Catholic Church defending the police action on preventing the spread of COVID19.

He said the firing of teargas was caused by a group of uninvited politicians including Francis Zaake among others who had attracted youth.

Now according to the Buganda kingdom spokesperson Noah Kiyimba, a meeting between the Katikkiro Charles Peter Mayiga and the top police leadership is scheduled for 11:00 am at Bulange Mengo.
