Thousands take part in Kabaka birthday run


An early morning downpour did not deter thousands of Buganda kingdom loyalists from taking part in the 5th edition of the annual Kabaka birthday run.

Kabaka Ronald Muwenda Mutebi II flagged of the runners at Lubiri – Mengo shortly after 7am.
proceeds from the run will go to the treatment of people living with sickle cells.

JIMMY SSEMAKADDE and ELLY KYEYUNE covered the event through the lens.
