The Kabaka’s birthday run, which normally attracts thousands of Ugandans and Buganda loyalist is annually staged to commemorate the Birthday of His Majesty Ssabasajja Kabaka of Buganda, Ronald Muwenda Mutebi II. The Kabaka’s birthday run for the last three years was carried out under the theme, Fight against fistula will this year support the sickle cell patients.
In his speech, the Katikkiro of Buganda, Charles Peter Mayiga pointed out the lack of awareness among the population has been the major factor leading to the spread of diseases. “The strongest and most dangerous of the factors is lack of awareness. For example, HIV AIDS when it first appeared in the early 1980s around Masaka-Kyotera areas of Uganda, it was attributed to witchcraft, and the witch doctors pretended to diagnose what was afflicting a big number of young people then. In a similar vain for many people in this country, the sickle cell culprits are off springs of parents with what people term, bad blood or those who are cursed. This is because they are not aware, that is the level at which they can reason out things,” Mr. Mayiga noted.
