April 2011 is when the four year term for current Buganda kingdom Katikkiro, JB Walusimbi, expires. According to the Redpepper(2010),’‘Katikkiro JB Walusimbi recently met the Kabaka and communicated his unwillingness to go for a second term. This, the Katikkiro maintains, is consistent with his inauguration speech of 2007 when he assured the Kabaka that he would do just one term.
Having served at Mengo for a very long time (he was finance minister for a very long time including during Joseph Mulwanyammuli’s reign), Walusimbi has naturally generated fatigue and wants to retire to private life and redeem his businesses some of which have been affected by his busy schedule while serving at Mengo since the 1990s.However, palace insiders tell us the Kabaka didn’t want to renew Walusimbi’s contract because of his soft approach to the Buganda issues, thus his shopping for a radical and anti Museveni prime minister. ”
So who do you want to be your next Katikkiro? Any Ideas?
