The Katikkiro of Buganda Charles Peter Mayiga has come out dismissing reports which have been circulating about the Kabaka of Buganda Ronald Muwenda Mutebi being bed-ridden.
The Premier described those peddling these rumors on social media as enemies of the Kingdom.
Addressing the press at Bulange Mengo on Monday, Mayiga said he and other Kingdom officials had received an overwhelming number of calls from various people seeking clarification about the rumors.
“I want to make it clear to everybody that the Kabaka is doing fine and he is not admitted to any hospital as is being alleged,” he said.
Mayiga blamed the rumors on bloggers who want to use fake news as an opportunity to grow their fan base as a way of earning a living from social media companies.
He asked people to only trust information about the Kingdom from reliable sources as well as the known Kingdom platforms and officials.
