Mayiga was responding to speculations and banters raised by social media bloggers who demanded to know the whereabouts of the King.

“Where is the king? Stop fooling us,” a one Mwoyo gwa Gwanga tweeted.

Mayiga responded on his official Twitter account “Mujja kumulaba nga asiimye,” loosely translated “You will see him when he deems it necessary.”

Now showing up in public on Tuesday to attend his 66th birthday celebrations, the King looked frail and unwell thus prompting a section of netizens to question the state of his health.
