Thousands of fans from different Buganda Kingdom counties have today stormed St Mary’s Stadium in Kitende to catch a glimpse of the Kabaka at the Masaza Cup final match. 

The final is between Buwekula and Buddu. The two counties will be meeting for the second time in this year’s tournament, having played out to a 2-all stalemate in the group stages.

Kabaka of Buganda Ronald Muwenda Mutebi is expected to be the Chief guest as the two sides lock horns for this year’s Masaza silverware.

URN sampled some of the fans, who were full of joy. Derrick Kakaire told URN that he is neutral in the final, adding that he basically wanted to have  a look at his King.

//Cue in nze nzize kuwagira … //

Cue out mbeera mukono wantoni.”//

Usama Mawanda, a fan from Buddu County said he came to cheer his side as they battle in the final.

//Cue in: nzize kulaba nga …//

Cue out: … mulabeko olwaleero"//

Gideon Mukisa also another fan of Buddu said he traveled a long distance from Kyanja to cheer his side to win this edition of Masaza Cup.

//Cue in: mpagira buddu ..//

Cue out kumulabako bwawereza."//

On the road  to St. Mary’s Kitende, almost every trading center organised people bedecked in the Buganda Kingdom cultural code of dressing, with drums on the road side as they wait for Kakabaka Mutebi. 

This is the first Masaza Cup final to be graced by Kabaka  Mutebi since 2019 when Bulemeezi won the trophy at Mandela National Stadium in Namboole.
