Peter Charles MayigaA new Buganda Heritage and Tourism Board or BHTB has recently been inaugurated by Peter Charles Mayiga, to promote tourism potential in the kingdom.

The new board is headed by Jane Nankabirwa Kabugo, with Daniel Yiga as the vice chairperson.

Other members include Musitwa Namaganda (human resource), Remegio Kigongo (conservation committee), John Kitenda (treasurer), Emmanuel Nsubuga (head of promotion and marketing), Amos Wekesa (product development), Prof. Edward Kirumira (resource mobilization), Rosemary Senabulya (restoration committee) and Bashir Kizito (land matters, research and gazetting cultural sites).

Buganda has rich and exotic heritage. Mayiga said that it can earn a lot from tourism provided it’s well marketed.

He said, “What we need is to do good public relations for people to know what we have both locally and internationally and I believe with your expertise and experience we shall achieve our goal.”

Uganda doesn’t have good public relations for “what we have”, a reason for receiving fewer visitors than our potential, explained by the kingdom premier.

To quote Mayiga, “Buganda, with a history of about 700 years in existence, is worth visiting to see its installations and sites. Uganda as a country has different people with different unique customs; Toro and Kigezi areas also have the best sceneries and landscapes you can’t find anywhere. But how come more tourists visit Seychelles and Dubai? This is because of poor public relations.’’
