Mohamood Ssemambo Ssekimpi. The group was led by the clan leader, Omutaka Walusimbi Yusuf Kigumba Makubuya Mbirozankya, who presented Shs 3.5 million (US$1,130) to the Deputy Katikkiro.
Omutaka Yusuf Kigumba Makubuya Walusimbi used the occasion to announce that he has introduced a birth registration certificate for members of Effumbe Clan, which describes the holder’s lineage and Baganda ancestry.
The Luwalo Lwaffe initiative is different from the Ettofaali program, where the Katikkiro, other Buganda Government officials and volunteer businessmen travel across Buganda and other parts of Uganda to directly solicit contributions from Baganda and well-wishers. Luwalo Lwaffe, which Katikkiro Mayiga launched in mid-January 2015, delegates the solicitation of funds for buying certificates to Ggombolola chiefs, clan administrations and other Baganda institutitions. Since the Luwalo Lwaffe was launched, 18 clans have brought their contributions to Mengo Bulange
