RESTORATION OF THE ROYAL TOMBS

The Ambassador of Egypt to Uganda and his wife, and Mr. Muhozi (son of President Museveni),
at the official opening of the Royal Tomb of Omukama Kaboyo Olimi I, founder of the Toro monarchy.

The ancestral burial shrines of the past kings of Toro are in deplorable state, due to 26 years of neglect. Restoration efforts are currently going on and will continue until these sites are restored to their original condition. Recognizing that the Royal Tombs are a part of the cultural heritage and history of the batooro and their kingdom, their importance cannot be minimized. In addition  to their cultural and historic roles, the Royal Tombs will become a part of the tourism package that Toro has to offer. Not only will they educate the world, but they will also provide employment to several people; thus contributing to the Foundation's efforts in poverty alleviation. Our appeal for funding to restore and maintain the ancestral resting places of the kings of Toro, therefore, goes out to all our friends and well wishers.
