The Kabaka of Buganda launches a book on Ssekabaka Muteesa II struggles:

Posted Friday, 27 May, 2016

Kampala in the State Kingdom of Buganda:
Kabaka Ronald Mutebi on Wednesday, 25th May 2016,  launched a book about the struggles of his late father and former Buganda king, Edward Muteesa II, touching on Uganda’s history before and after independence.

The book titled The Brave King, revisits the stories of Muteesa’s exiling, first between 1953 and 1955, and again from 1966 to 1969 when he died in London. The author, Mr Patrick Makumbi, drew from the documents preserved by his father, 99-year-old Thomas Makumbi, who was an official at Mengo, Buganda’s power capital.

“I was very happy to write the preface to this book,” Kabaka Mutebi said, adding: “It will help the readers understand what Kabaka Muteesa went through in those days.”

When Mutesa was exiled in 1953, the older Makumbi, the father of the author, led a team of six Buganda officials to negotiate with the British about the king’s return to Buganda, which was secured in 1955. The other members of the team were Mr Apollo Kironde, Mr Matayo Mugwanya, Mr Amos Sempa, Mr Eridadi Mulira and Mr Ernest Kalibbala.

Kabaka Mutebi, while officiating at the function, called on more people to document what they saw during those days, saying “it is a good thing” that some of those who witnessed or participated in the events are still alive. Muteesa himself wrote about the period in question in his autobiography, The Desecration of my Kingdom, and Kabaka Mutebi’s endorsement of Mr Makumbi’s new book will be seen as an extension of the kingdom’s bid to manage the narrative.

Mr Apollo Makubuya, Buganda’s third deputy Katikkiro, at the launch held at Bulange-Mengo said there have been attempts to misrepresent history by “those who do not like us”.

Accusations and counter accusations of betrayal between Buganda Kingdom and Obote are rooted in a rather happy start, when Buganda’s party Kabaka Yekka (KY) teamed up with Obote’s Uganda People’s Congress to defeat the Democratic Party and form government at independence in 1962.

But the two centres of power soon quarrelled violently and were involved in what many have regarded as a critical turning point in Uganda’s history. The army, on Obote’s orders, stormed Muteesa’s palace on May 24, 1966, killing multitudes and forcing the king-president into exile.

Mr Makubuya said his grandfather was among those killed during the attack, an occasion the kingdom commemorates yearly on May 24. He said in addition to explaining how Buganda and Muteesa suffered during that period, Mr Makumbi’s book will clarify a number of other issues, including how colonialism thwarted Buganda’s development efforts.

He said Buganda stiffly resisted colonialism and the demands of colonial governor Andrew Cohen in particular, to the extent of winning a court case in London against the exiling of Muteesa. In all its efforts, Mr Makubuya said, Buganda was consistently seeking autonomy, and that the kingdom can “never” lose sight of this objective.

Mr Makumbi, the author, said his father could not attend the launch due to old age.

The publication of the book was financed by Dr Colin Sentongo, who said at the launch that KY, which ceased to exist in the 1960s, is the only political party he has ever belonged to.

The fathers of Mr Makumbi and Dr Sentongo met with Muteesa as students at Kings College Budo, from where, Mr Sentongo said, the three men forged a life-long friendship. It is probably much for this reason that Kabaka Mutebi warmed up to Mr Sentongo and Mr Makumbi at the launch.

Omuzikiti guno gwali mu Lubiri e Mmengo, gugambibwa okumenyebwa okuva mu Lubiri e Mmengo ku ntandikwa ya 2013 era Abasiraamu bangi bakissa ku Mayiga ebiseera ebyo eyali Minisita w’ebyamawulire e Mmengo okuba mu kkobaane ly’okuggyamu omuzikiti guno.

Interesting videos these days:

 

 

In Uganda, most likely, Archbishop Lwanga will be conned of State House money he has accepted:

May 9, 2018

Written by Yusuf Serunkuma

 

 

Those who have visited the bowels of State House at Entebbe or Nakasero tell glowing stories of piles after piles of cash securely stashed in there.

 

Entrance is highly restricted. Lanky mean-looking fellows – keep close guard of these mega-size coffers. For those who have been lucky to drop in either as fumigants, electricians and sometimes helping hands with counting (big money is counted via weighing scales or estimated in bundles), or packaging for dispatch to different missions, the experience is overwhelming.

Once in, one is welcomed by the compelling fragrance of new bills. Like freshly cut wood. Either recently shipped from Bank of Uganda – the budget allocation of State House donations – or brought in by cheerful fellas looking for or appreciating favours from the president.

 

Our loquacious chroniclers tell stories of overwhelming spread-out rooms of cash in all forms: local and regional currencies, the US Dollar, the Pound Sterling, Francs, Riyals, the Ruble, and Euros. Even the highly restricted Chinese RMB, I am told, is plentiful behind those walls.

Bundles of cash are meticulously lined up like books in a library. My mind drifted back to these State House money fables when the president offered my mentor, Archbishop Cyprian Kizito Lwanga, Shs 500 million to support church projects.

For those who may not know, the archbishop and I come from neighbouring villages in Kyampisi sub-county, Mukono district.

The archbishop is one of our village heroes. My parents settled here in the early 1990s, and we were lucky to become neighbours with the archbishop’s family. I studied at Bishop Cyprian Kizito Lwanga secondary school, Kyabakadde.

While Bishop of Kasana-Luwero diocese, Lwanga immensely contributed towards building this secondary school – which would be named after him. In the late 1990s, as one of the stars of the school (I was football team captain, and chairman of debating club), we looked to Bishop Lwanga for inspiration – and he offered a great deal of it!

During mass – and bishop often visited and led them – I was often selected to read the day’s scripture. To this day, Archbishop Lwanga remains a major source of inspiration. So, when he was offered money amidst claims the church he leads was suspected of subversive activities, my mind started racing.

It raced not because I would visit and remind him of our shared village roots and ask for some money, but I was tense of fear that my archbishop could be fleeced of this money.

Our president is on record saying most of his handlers are thieves. (Recall he had started moving with his money in sacks so as to give it out on the spot, cutting out handlers.

But we are told handlers made duplicate sacks which they filled with smaller bills!) Since donations are rarely wired through banks – often given out in sacks, vans, or envelopes depending on the amount – I started wondering from whose desk was the archbishop’s money going to come.

I need to explain this thing about money desks at State House: for presidential donations, there are two desks – both manned by women Maj Gen Proscovia Nalweyiso or Lucy Nakyoobe.

Nakyoobe is the official State House comptroller and responsible for dishing out official government donations.

But handlers do not like her desk since all monies departing it have to be signed for. Political offers, like the one my archbishop was receiving, may not necessarily be signed for.

This makes Nalweyiso – although her position in State House is not properly defined – the most popular teller as her monies are free of encumbrances. Once the president makes an offer, the beneficiary is given an intermediary to lead them to Nalweyiso who takes their details and offers to contact them when the delivery is ready.

Please do not harass her with phone call reminders. When Nalweyiso’s go-betweens contact you to deliver the package, they act like ghosts.

They may ask to find you at City Square at 10pm, but later change to Sheraton hotel parking yard. Interlocutors narrate that these God-blessed intermediaries, convinced it will take you years to see the president again, choose to deliver either half or quarter of the sum the president promised.

This was the basis of my worry. But while I grieved, I chastened myself with the thought that being the archbishop, Lwanga had a direct line to the president.

My friend Yusuf, such big time State House Money for the Africans has been flowing much since when the first Prime Minister Benedicto Kiwanuka resumed power around 1958/62. There was real shed of catholic tears when Benedicto Kiwanuka failed to make a come back after being defeated in the repeat national polls of early 1961/62.

 

 

 

Kabaka receives heroic welcome in Kayunga as he enters town on foot:

28 November, 2016

 

 
 
 
 
Kabaka Ronald

Mutebi together with His entourage in Bugerere County, Buganda Kingdom

The Kabaka, who arrived at Ssezibwa bridge at about 6.00 Pm, disembarked from his vehicle and after being greeted by the Katikkiro Peter Mayiga, decided to walk as he entered Kayunga District drawing ululations from his subjects.

Ssezibwa is where the then Katikkiro of Buganda JB Walusimbi was in 2009 blocked from entering Kayunga District.

The beaming Kabaka after walking across Ssezibwa Bridge entered his car but upon reaching Kayunga Town, he disembarked from his vehicle and walked along the main street covering a distance of about half a kilometer.

He walked through the crowds that had lined at the roadsides as he waved to his subjects, some of whom, prostrated before him amid tight security.

After walking through the Town, the Kabaka was driven to his palace at Ntenjeru, where he spent the night.

“Land lord you are welcome to your Bugerere County,” an elderly man, wearing a bark-cloth shouted as the Kabaka waved towards him.

This was the Kabaka’s second official visit to Kayunga District since 2009.

On Sunday morning, the Kabaka separately met members of the Bugerere County Lukiiko executive, sub-county and parish chiefs at his palace.

During the brief meetings, the Buganda elders led by John Lubega, complained about the memorandum of understanding (MoU) that signed between Mengo and the central government in 2013, saying it has many loopholes, which they said have resulted into the Banyala taking over some of the Kingdom properties in the county.

“Efforts should be made to have the MoU amended so that our property is not grabbed by some people here,” Mr Lubega told the Kabaka.

In his speech, the Kabaka said: “We shall not fight with anyone in this area who doesn’t respect our culture and norms but we shall only work with those who respect our culture.”

Under the MoU, the properties that include land and former administrative units of Buganda were given to the Banyala, an ethnic community in the area which claims that Bugerere is not under the Kabaka. The Banyala in October stormed Bbaale sub-county headquarters, where they constructed the Ssabanyala’s palace. Mengo asked them to vacate the area in vain.

The Kabaka, later graced the finals of the Bika football and netball championship. The football championship was won by Nte clan which beat Balangira clan on spot kicks.

 

 

Mayiga the Kattikiro of Buganda, let us all do Ettofaali for a cancer hospital in the State of Buganda for once:

By Mike Ssegawa
 

Posted  15 April, 2015

 

One Charles Peter Mayiga is worth 100 ministers in a banana republic.

Mayiga, who took over from Walusimbi as Buganda kingdom prime minister, has done for his cultural institution only a few would dream of two years ago when he was appointed. From mobilising people who describe themselves as poor to donate money voluntarily towards projects such as Amasiro, to raising money for real estate like the Masengere building that was donated to the Kabaka as a birthday gift on Monday.

It is difficult to convince people to part with their money for a project they see no direct benefit. Those who have organized fundraising for weddings, funerals or religious activities know better.

However, Mayiga has managed to get people to appreciate his fundraising initiatives. One of the fruits of his fundraising drive is Masengere, a building in Bulange Mengo, that was rotting away for three decades, but has been completed at a tune of Shs5 billion. That was no mean feat.

Mayiga and his Ettofaali team have proved that Ugandans can be donors – poor or rich. Secondly, that dedicated and transparent leaders can get support from everyone especially when doing noble causes.

Mayiga puts across a strong message of accountability and empowerment. That is why he is trusted by thousands with their shillings.

For a long time, it was known that it is bazungu who donate $10 or $20 for poverty stricken Africans. When they stop their taps, all projects on the continent dry up. Mayiga proves that thinking wrong – actually, we can support our own noble projects.

Against demeaning remarks from critics calling him a beggar, Mayiga is like John Walker who keeps walking, ignoring naysayers. And this is why the Katikkiro should now embark on other projects that would address the cries of the helpless.

This country has pleaded with its government. Patients have died. Many are bedridden and in pain. However, no solution has come to save.

Uganda needs a specialised hospital for ailments that our national hospitals cannot undertake due to resource constraints. Of course our government has money, but, there is simply no will to make a revolutionary difference in the health sector.

To be a heart and cancer patient in Uganda, you have to pray for a miracle, be rich to afford medication abroad, or get yourself ready for death.

The funding to the heart and cancer institutes at Mulago hospital can’t do much despite our good doctors wanting to make a difference. I know – at least the doctors at the heart institute treated my daughter. It is the tools that frustrate them.

Again, it is not because we have no money. We do, because, we have some to steal, and some to donate to neighbours to build schools.

This is where Mayiga’s Ettofaali project comes in. Kabaka’s subjects can live better with a specialized hospital where Ugandans can get treatment in country. This is Ettofaali I am itching to give.

Thinking about Rosemary Nankabirwa, the former NTV news anchor who succumbed to the disease on Sunday, or Bbale Francis and Dan Kyazze, among others who die every day from cancer related diseases, I wish Kabaka’s subjects got their good health back from a Kabaka’s hospital.

As I pray for Kabaka’s good health and that he lives longer, I also pray another birthday gift for him of a specialized hospital, from Mayiga’s gifted hands, comes to pass.
