Buganda loyalists in Ssese have constructed a temporary palace to accommodate the Kabaka due to the poor state of the old palace.
Kabaka Ronald Muwenda Mutebi arrived in Kalangala today ahead of his 22nd coronation anniversary celebrations tomorrow.
Traditionally, the Kabaka spends a night in his palace in the county which is hosting him.
However, the palace in Kalangala is dilapidated because of years of neglect.
The palace at Ssozi village on Bugala Island was built during the reign of Kabaka Edward Mutesa.
According to residents, the palace is in a sorry state and is overgrown with grass.
Bruce Ssenkubuge, the deputy chief Ssese under the Mengo administration says they have decided to construct a temporally palace to host the Kabaka at Bujumba sub county headquarters.
He says they opted for temporary palace due to lack of resources to rehabilitate Ssozi palace.
Thousands of Buganda subjects are heading for the Ssese Islands in Kalangala district to grace the historical function.
By 2.00pm and his subjects were already waiting to welcome him at Bugoma landing site where the ferries dock.
