The run is scheduled on Sunday 7th April 2024, under the theme “Men are stars in the fight against HIV/AIDS to save the Girl Child”.

Buganda Premier Charles Peter Mayiga has expressed support for Youth Minister Balaam Barugahara's effort in urging President Museveni to release Opposition National Unity Platform (NUP) supporters who were arrested during the 2021 general election campaigns.

Last week, Balaam asked the President to release NUP supporters detained for political reasons.

Katikkiro Mayiga affirmed his support for Barugahara's efforts and stated his willingness to engage with the NUP to facilitate release of the party supporters.

The Buganda Kingdom premier was speaking after meeting members of the Patriotic League of Uganda (PLU) at Bulange Mengo where they had called on Mayiga to buy kits for the Kabaka Birthday Run.

Members of PLU led by the State minister for National Guidance, Godfrey Kabbyanga, bought kits worth Shs20 million.

Minister Kabbyanga expressed gratitude to Buganda for its inclusive hospitality, irrespective of race or political affiliation.

‘’We are so grateful to the Kabaka and the entire kingdom for the open-door policy, welcoming everyone regardless of the religion or political affiliation,’’ Kabbyanga said.

The team had more than 10 members of Parliament from different regions as well as Balaam and Lilian Aber, the minister of state for relief, disaster preparedness and refugee affairs.

The Katikkiro also welcomed Bishop Wilson Kisekka of Luwero Diocese, who led a delegation from Bulemeezi, Katikkiro Mayiga asked leaders there to collaborate and fight defilement, which is so rampant in the area.

They also bough kits for three million Uganda shillings in support of the Kabaka Birthday Run.

Schools and institutions are increasingly visiting Bulange to purchase kits for participation in the run whose proceeds will go toward the HIV/AIDS prevention efforts.

This year's Kabaka birthday run is witnessing unprecedented popularity.

The run is scheduled on Sunday 7th April 2024, under the theme “Men are stars in the fight against HIV/AIDS to save the Girl Child”.
