While making her submission before the Committee on Tourism, Trade and Industry on Thursday, 01 September 2022, the Minister of State for Gender, Labour and Social Development (Gender and Culture), Hon. Peace Mutuuzo, proposed a new clause to be introduced on the Museums and Monument Bill, 2022 to authorise cities and municipalities to have public museums.

“This bill should provide for a clause which obliges all gazetted cities and municipalities in Uganda to establish a public museum,” Mutuuzo said.

This, according to the minister, will help to promote and protect cultural and natural heritage in different regions. Mutuuzo was presenting the ministry’s views in regard to the bill that was tabled for first reading by the Minister of State for Tourism, Wildlife and Antiquities (Tourism), Hon. Martin Mugarra on 13 July 2022. Cities and municipalities will be mandated to establish public museums if Parliament adopts a proposal from the Ministry of Gender, Labour and Social Development.
