In response to critics, Nsibambi has defended himself saying that it was not his fault that the cake had such a shape.

He revealed that the shape and colour of the cake was decided by the royal family.

“I would like to make some points clear here about Kabaka’s cake. It’s not the baker that decides the colour and shape of the Kabaka’s birthday cake but the royal family does and this time around, that’s the color and shape that was prepared. Sorry for all those that have been negatively affected. Long live the king of Buganda,” Nsibambi said on Wednesday.
