His Majesty Oyo Nyimba Kabamba Iguru Rukidi IV, King of Tooro Kingdom has been awarded for trying to improve their lives of his people.
Oyo, also the UNAIDS Goodwill Ambassador for Youth and Youngest reigning monarch, was honoured by Ichange Nations INC.
“…who awarded me with the World Civility Award for my efforts in serving and improving the livelihood of my people,” the King tweeted.
He added: “Appreciation goes to Dr. Clyde Rivers, the President and Founder for presenting the Award.”
Oyo who recently celebrated his 24th coronation anniversary, is also credited for preserving the environment through waste management.
In line with this year’s Empango theme on environmental conservation, he this week oversaw collection of plastics that were floating on the river banks.
“We have put in place several rubbish bins to help with waste management and disposal and I urge our people to use them correctly,” he said.
