King Oyo overturns decision to turn kingdom headquarters into a hotel

The King of Tooro Oyo Nyimba Kabamba Iguuru overturns a decision by his cabinet to turn the Kingdom headquarters at Mucwa into a modern hotel.

Early this week, the kingdom premier revealed that cabinet had decided to turn the headquarters into a multi-billion hotel, which would fetch revenue for the cultural institution.

In a press statement Jonathan Baguma the Principal Private Secretary, said that the King has reversed the decision made by Tooro parliament in order to reserve the history and core cultural values of the kingdom.

 

The king’s decision follows protests by his subjects, the latest being Princess Elizabeth Bagaya who said the block is historic to the kingdom
