Uganda: Ekitoobero Draws Thousands
When the monarch stepped on stage to address the crowd, he said he felt like dancing as the artistes sang.
Before speaking to the crowd Kabaka "ordered" that artistes Joanita Kawalya, Jose Chameleone and Mesach Semakula sing for him because he would be leaving soon.
About the CBS FM's staff who sang an anthem for the radio, the Kabaka said;
"I wish you had included me. Next time include me and I will sing."
His suggestion was welcomed by wild cheers from the throngs of people...

Rwenzururu kingdom restored

More on the restoration of the Rwenzururu kingdom in Uganda.

Nursing assistant returns to Mountains of the Moon to reclaim crown | World news | guardian.co.uk

20 October 2009; excerpts:

Nursing assistant returns to Mountains of the Moon to reclaim crown


On Monday, Charles Wesley Mumbere's royal title became official once more when he was crowned head of the 300,000 strong Rwenzururu kingdom at a ceremony in western Uganda. Thousands of people in Kasese turned to celebrate the restoration of the monarchy, which was abolished in 1967 along with the country's other kingdoms by the then president Milton Obote.

Mumbere, who was 13 at the time, had inherited the title a year before after his father died while leading a rebellion seeking to end oppression of his Bakonzo people by the Toro kingdom. The young king stayed in the snow-capped Rwenzori mountains until 1982 when he and his soldiers handed over their weapons to the government in the hope of restoring their kingdom.

Following 10 years of talks, Museveni announced in August that Rwenzururu would become the country's seventh kingdom.

The various Ugandan kings have responsibility for cultural and social issues but no political power.

Buganda kingdom rejects new Uganda land law
BBC article

Tension is high between the Buganda kingdom and the government of President Yoweri Museveni.
The kingdom feels the new law encroaches on the king's territory.
The king currently has absolute jurisdiction over land within the kingdom.
The new law gives tenants more rights to resist eviction by landlords.

Gadaffi rocked by talk of affair with African queen
5 Jul 2009

As Colonel Muammar Gadaffi, the leader of Libya, hosted an African Union summit last week, his name was romantically linked in a court case with the queen mother of an ancestral Ugandan kingdom.

Two editors of a Ugandan daily newspaper are being prosecuted for alleging that he is having an affair with her.

The prosecution arose from a series of articles that portrayed Gadaffi, 67, as being in love with Best Kemigisa, 42, the attractive mother of King Oyo Nyimba Kabamba Iguru Rukidi IV of Toro, one of five ancient kingdoms that make up Uganda.

HRH Princess Aaliya Sultana Babi of Balasinor (Western India) and Princess Xenia Florence Gabriela Sophie Iris of Saxony (Germany) will participate in the show too.
The princesses are going to share a modest three-bed semi, ironically called Queen's Lodge. They will try to find Prince Charming.

The tombs of five Buganda kings are destroyed by fire

The famous Kasubi Tombs were destroyed by fire on March 16th 2010 in the kingdom of Buganda.
Four of Buganda’s kings; Muteesa I, Mwanga Basammula, Daudi Chwa and Sir Edward Muteesa II are buried at the Kasubi tombs. Muteesa II is the father of the reigning king, Ronald Muwenda Mutebi II.
Situated on Kasubi hill, within Kampala, Uganda, the Kasubi Tombs site is an active religious place in the Buganda Kingdom. To the Baganda the Kabaka is the unquestioned symbol of spiritual, political, and social state of the Buganda nation. As the burial ground for the previous four Kabakas, therefore, the Kasubi Tombs is a place where the Kabaka and others in Buganda’s complex cultural hierarchy frequently carry out important centuries-old Ganda rituals.
Kasubi Tombs are the part of UNESCO World Heritage.

An incalculable loss to the world and the loyal subjects of the Kingdom of Buganda. My sympathies lie with them during this time and NOT with the 'president for what looks like life' Musevini, whose actions in this case are 'somewhat suspicious'.
