The Buganda Kingdom Kabaka Ronald Muwenda Mutebi II and the Nnabagereka (queen) Sylvia Nagginda on Friday received their first dose of the vaccine against Covid-19 at the Lubiri (palace) in Kireka, Kampala.
“Ssabasajja Kabaka Ronald Muwenda Mutebi II and the Nnabagereka Sylvia Nagginda Luswata were vaccinated against COVID-19 at the Lubiri in Kireka today,” senior lawyer, David F.K. Mpanga, who doubles as the Minister for Special Assignments in the Kabaka’s office tweeted on Friday.
The Kabaka’s appearance at vaccination session is his second since his 66th birthday celebrations in Mengo where he appeared to be struggling as a result of his health.
The vaccination also came hours after the Ministry of Health on Thursday reported 26 new cases as the number of Ugandans infected with the virus rose to 41,263.
The ministry also said they had vaccinated a total of 206,708 persons against the virus that has so far killed 338 Ugandans since March last year when the outbreak was confirmed in the country.
Yesterday (Thursday) the Kabaka was seen in Ntinda at Capital Shoppers supermarket.
