Nnabagereka in the UK for cultural education

The Nnabagereka of Buganda Sylvia Nagginda is in the United Kingdom to teach cultural education to mainly Baganda youth in the diaspora through her flagship Ekisaakaate.

Her travel coordinator, Mr Enock Mayanja Kiyaga, who is also Buganda Kingdom’s representative in Manchester, yesterday said Ms Nagginda arrived in the UK last Friday.

“Teenagers are eagerly waiting for the wise teaching of her majesty that is already here with us. She will be officiating at the Kisaakaate (camp) that will last three days”

The camp will take place at St Phillips Primary School at Laxford Street from tomorrow up to Friday with participants paying £50 (about Shs237,000).

The camp will cover a wide range of themes including good behaviour, learning how to prepare a Kiganda meal, good conduct at home, sexuality education for youth, knife-crime and financial intelligence.
It is being organised by the Nnabagereka Development Foundation.

Away from Manchester, the Nnabagereka is already holding the camp in London for the second time. It is taking place at St Jude Church on Thornton Road with participants having paid £70 (about Shs330,000).

Buganda Kingdom spokesman Noah Kiyimba confirmed the trip.

About ekisaakaate

Last year at a dinner with Ugandans in Manchester, the idea of the Ekisaakaate was mooted.

At the event, Ms Nagginda told Ugandans; “Buganda tradition and morals have been of great importanceto instilling morals in children to prepare them to face challenges in life.”

The 12th Annual Ekisaakaate Kya Nnabagereka was last year hosted by St Joseph of Nazareth High School in Kavule-Katende, on Kampala- Masaka highway.

It is a leadership development and mentorship camp that uses cultural education and heritage to reshape the traditions.
