Since 1993, Buganda Kingdom has been at it. The Buganda Golfers Association (BGA) have always held the Kabaka Coronation Golf Tournament albeit the last two years when the Covid-19 pandemic hit hard and halted any sporting activity.

After the two-year hiatus, the Kings Cup returns in full throttle with the 29th Kabaka Coronation Cup that has an aim to fundraise for the Kingdom’s fight in ending HIV/AIDS in the country by 2030.

Kabaka Ronald Muwenda Mutebi II is the UNAIDS Goodwill Ambassador in the fights of the Aids scourge in East and Central Africa and has more recently been to the islands alongside Katikkiro Charles Peter Mayiga where men have been urged to lead the fight and save the girl child.

Wellness driven causes

A very high-profile Buganda Kingdom official will tee-off the event and preside over its closing ceremony on Saturday.”
