The Ekyooto Ha Mpango Cultural and tourism festival that was scheduled to run from the 11th to the 14th of November will now run from the 25th to the 28th of November 2021.

The Ekyooto Ha Mpango festival was launched by His Majesty Oyo Nyimba Kabamba Iguru on the eve of his 26th coronation anniversary at the Tooro Kingdom’s palace.
