Bakiga Nation 4th edition festival dubbed ‘Rukundo Egumeho’ at Hilltop Naguru on Sunday was massive and the attendance overwhelmed the organisers.
The event is slowly taking over Kampala by storm as the most attended cultural social event. Hundreds and hundreds of Bakiga as well as their well wishers from other tribes joined each other for a fun filled day.
The venue was packed to the capacity as Bakiga danced to their traditional songs, played games and sipped on their favorite drink ‘Enturire’.
Well over 6000 people turned up for the festival, the Bakiga and well wishers. ‘Rukundo Egumeho’ is a cultural festival organised by Bakiga Nation team.
All tribes are welcome on that day to celebrate the Bakiga culture, meet friends network have a family chill as they enjoy all kinds of drinks, eats entertainment, games tag of war, enturire, bushera, music kids play area.
The 4th edition was powered by Coca Cola, Uber, Roke telecom.
The space became too small for the crowds and service providers were overwhelmed as beers and sodas got done by 7pm. There was restocking but still drinks were consumed immediately.
The attendance was big sign of success and will help the team to be more prepared next time because they now expect close to 10,000 people or plus to turn up for the next one.
The organizers are thinking of getting a bigger venue to accommodate the expected massive attendance in the next edition slated for June 2018. “Since more people will be traveling from many places to come attend the fun filled festival, we are thinking of getting a bigger venue,” Owen said.
The festival is organised buy some very energetic and committed youth with huge passion to get people together with Owen Katwesigye as the Head of the team.
So far this event is becoming more popular than the ‘Blankets and Wine’ and the next one is going to be bigger and better.
Bakiga Nation team is very thankful to Coke Cola for believing in them by offering tents and chairs and sodas.
