FORT PORTAL, UGANDA: The king of Tooro, His Majesty Oyo Nyimba Kabamba Iguru IV has postponed his 29th birthday celebrations and will not be holding any public activities until further notice.

The announcement was made by the Kingdom’s information minister Charles Mwanguhya saying that the move is intended to conform to the standard operating procedures and curb the spread of covid19 and related new variants.

However, Mwanguhya says the king has advised the people of Uganda not to take the easing of covid-19 measures for granted but rather take personal initiative to protect themselves and follow all covid-19 guidelines put in place by the government.

The King has also rallied the youth in Uganda and the world to guard against contracting HIV/Aids, and work hard to ensure the development of the country.
