Justin Muturi’s encounter with Uganda’s famous kneeling culture
Speaker of the National Assembly, Justin Muturi, was recently treated to a famous Ugandan culture when a male adult knelt before him.
Muturi is currently leading the Kenya contingent that is competing at the East Africa Assembly Games in Kampala.
While on a tour of the Vipers Stadium, alongside his Ugandan counterpart Rebecca Kadaga, Muturi sat and watched as a smiling chap knelt before Kadaga in a bid to help her sign the guest book at the venue.
Kneeling before adults, especially prominent personalities, is a common occurrence in Uganda.
As part of the practice, women are encouraged to kneel before their husbands while exchanging greetings and when serving them food.
