KAMPALA. Buganda Kingdom, through its investment arm Buganda Investments and Commercial Undertakings Limited, has unveiled a platform to transform its communities through development partnerships.
The platform dubbed “Partnering for Community Transformation” was launched at a symposium held in Kampala on Tuesday.
Speaking at the function, Buganda premier Charles Peter Mayiga said the kingdom is aiming at achieving economic transformation that is people centered.

“The Kingdom of Buganda is totally focused and committed to achieving economic transformation aimed at uplifting the standards of living for the people of Buganda and Uganda at large,” Mr Mayiga said.
“The Kingdom is eying holistic growth by setting in motion a healthy population, ensure sustainable household food supply, boost education and encourage community development,” he said, adding that all these aspects are well articulated in the Buganda Kingdom Development Strategic Plan 2014-2018 locally known as Pulaani Nnamutayiika.

He added the symposium had come at an opportune time in the kingdom’s development journey as it seeks to create a more resilient and prosperous kingdom that adheres to the fundamental principles of sustainable development.
Mr Mayiga assured partners that he will continue to foster transparency and that his agenda of “Obwerufu” (transparency) will be key in the activities the kingdom plans to undertake with its partners.
The kingdom’s finance minister, Mr Robert Waggwa Nsibirwa, said Buganda Kingdom is mainly focused at transforming people’s lives.
