Space is still the only problem so far but Bakiga Nation’s ‘Rukundo Egumeho’ series of events is a very cool idea that unites the great tribe of Bakiga who live in Kampala and neighboring places. This an event where you get meet your old friends, old boys, old girls and this is what happened at the 5th edition

Naggulu Hilltop Gardens were filled to capacity once again for this edition which was a fun filled one that boasted of lots of activities taking place. Among them were the different games like rope skipping, tag of war, Kikiga dance competitions amongst Bakiga clans and off course, without forgetting artistes’ performances

It was a slay, eat, drink and interaction kind of set up as the revelers enjoyed the last bit of the weekend which also doubled as the annual Uganda Martyrs Day. Whereas thousands had flocked Namugongo Shrine to celebrate Martyrs Day, Naggulu Hilltop was another place people thronged to have fun.

All the Bakiga local foods and drinks like the bushera, omuramba, enturirre among many others were there on sale and those who had never had a taste of them finally got one.

It was a well spent Sunday had  performances from Kadingidi, Haka Mukiga, Amani Amanigga, Isaac without the live Dj mixes which kept the revellers’ vibe grooving .

‘Rukundo Egumeho’ which is Rukiga/ Runyankore  for ‘Let the love keep on’ was an idea of unity that the organisers of this event  thought about  5 years ago. In a way, this event has turned into a meeting place for Bakiga from all walks of life where they meet and interact at fun day out.
