This weekend, Tooro Kingdom celebrates 26 years since His Highness Oyo Nyimba Kabamba Iguru IV was crowned King following the death of his father, King Patrick Kaboyo Olimi III.
To celebrate his coronation, King Oyo has previously hosted jubilant crowds from all over Tooro region at the Royal Palace traditionally known as the Karuzika in a series of celebratory activities.
However, this year, the celebrations will be held virtually in adherence to the COVID-19 SOPs.
According to the King’s Principle Private Secretary, Prince Jonathan Baguma, preparations are underway to still make this year’s occasion a memorable one.
“We are working with our friends from Talent Africa Group whose history of remarkable hybrid event execution is undoubted to ensure that everyone can catch the virtual celebrations from the comfort of their homes.” Prince Jonathan Baguma noted.
The celebrations will start on the 11th as the King officially closes his silver jubilee celebrations and launches the Ekyooto Ha Mpango Festival and end on the 12th of September with a thanksgiving service alongside other celebratory activities.
