Addressing the media on Monday, Sengendo said the launch of AQWCLN is a follow up of the resolutions which were made in Ghana Capital, Accra, in 2012.

“All preparations have been finalized for the launch of the African cultural leaders network (AQWCLN)” said Sengendo.

He said the organization was founded by the Nabagereka of Buganda, Sylvia Nagginda together with the queen mother Nanaheema Awindor of Ashanti Kingdom in Ghana last year.

Mrs Solome Nakawesi Kimbugwe, a representative from the office of the Nnabagereka, said “this network has no political affiliation because its initiators are cultural leaders who lead people from all political circles.”


She said the queens agreed to establish a special relationship with other high profile and international development partners such as United Nations and African Union to support poverty eradication programmes.

The representatives further decided that it was very crucial for all the cultural leaders to get involved in community work so as to improve the living standards of their people.

The Launch will be held under the theme “African Queens and Women Cultural Leaders; A Vehicle for Social and Economic Empowerment of Rural Women and Youth in Africa –Looking Beyond 2015, The future that We Want.”

President Yoweri Museveni is expected to preside over the opening of the retreat where at least seventy Queens from all over Africa are expected to attend.
