Buganda Tourism EXPO 28th June 2010- Uganda Cultural Tour

Come 28th June 2010, Buganda, one the greatest Uganda kingdoms will hold a tourism EXPO. Buganda kingdom is located at the “heart of Uganda” in Kampala which happens to be the country’s capital city and center of trade. Buganda possesses a strong political structure and clearly defined ministries headed by the kingdom ministers and the Buganda tourism ministry, led by Florence Nakiwala Kiyingi, has partnered with Makerere University to ensure a successful week-long tourism EXPO that will run through to July.

Makerere University Department of Zoology led by Dr. Ann Acol, bears the responsibility of ensuring that all animals attached to the Buganda clans are available for the EXPO and a survey for the places where the animals are to be stationed for view has been made and attendants have been guaranteed that all Buganda animals will be available! The kingdom has also set up a separate museum dedicated to the king’s life and achievements which is deemed to boost the week-long event that will be characterized by great Ugandan food, culture and tremendous drama! Meanwhile, works are underway to ensure great accessibility to the site and exhibitors outside the Buganda kingdom and Uganda too are warmly welcome.

Well, you may have heard of, and attended different EXPOs around the world, but this one is exceptional!! Miss only if you can but I would bet you if it is anything less than captivating and a memorable event. The EXPO will be unveiled by her majesty Nnaabagereka, Sylvia Nagginda-the queen, on Monday 28th June 2010, and closed by the king his Royal Highness Kabaka Ronald Muwenda Mutebi II.
