Kabaka Ronald Muwenda Mutebi II paid a courtesy visit to the Uganda Wildlife Conservation Education Centre (UWEC) commonly known as Entebbe Zoo early this October.
The king, who first made a stroll around Entebbe Botanical Gardens, later visited the animal centre, where he was welcomed by UWEC executive director Dr James Musinguzi.
Musinguzi was flanked by UWEC board chairperson Ssebina Katumba and manager in charge of conservation education David Musingo.
Mutebi, together with close family members, fed different animals at the centre, including giraffes, elephants and chimpanzees in what is termed as Keeper for a day program.
He lauded UWEC for keeping the mantle in conserving flora and fauna, as well as preaching the gospel of conservation.
The King’s visit at Entebbe Zoo comes at a time when the centre is gearing to celebrate 70 years of existence, at a function which will be climaxed on December 2, 20
