The Minister for Sports, Youth and recreation in Buganda Kingdom Owek. Henry Ssekabembe Kiberu calls upon all Baganda to come in numbers and grace Bika football competition final.
“As we congratulate you for a successful end of Masaza Cup season, it’s the right time to remind you that we first became Baganda to belong to respective counties.
“It’s our responsibility as grandsons and daughters of Nambi and Kintu to know that Buganda’s back bone is the clans (Bika). Our clans reflect who we are right from origin, norms and the rich culture we hail from.
As we came in numbers for Masaza Cup final, we have an obligation to double the figure and fill Wankulukuku for the most valued tournament which reflects much more about us.
As the saying “ours is ours but mine is mine” goes, this should start right from the clan chiefs to family levels in oneness as Baganda to embrace this year’s finals.
Let drop the hearsay “Bika football competition collapsed”, it’s our noble responsibility to revive the glory of what belongs to us and you turn up will speak volumes for the future”. Owek. Henry Ssekabembe Kiberu.
