The Assembly of Catholic Bishops of Uganda has condemned the brutality with which security responded to the Makerere University students strike over fees.

The Ugandan clergy had come under criticism from a section of Ugandans for their loud silence on the brutality of the security forces against its citizens. When a students strike broke out on October 22, the army with the help of police responded with highhandedness and broke into students' halls of residence and hostels - arresting and torturing students. Security also descended on journalists who were covering the strike; arresting, torturing and destroying their equipment. 

Then last week on November 4, severe savagery and brutality were again manifested by police as they almost washed away former Forum for Democratic Change president Dr Kizza Besigye with a highly pressurized water cannon in Kireka. Besigye was waving to supporters from the open roof of his vehicle in Kireka enroute to his party headquarters after police blocked their party conference in Namboole.

On the very same day (November 4), police again brutally arrested journalists who were marching peacefully to Naguru to hand in a petition to the police boss, Martins Okoth Ochola to protest against brutality meted out on journalists covering the Makerere University strike.

Now in a statement, the bishops observe that the amount of force used by security agents while arresting protesting students, journalists and opposition groups over the recent weeks was uncalled and violated human dignity. 

The statement signed by the chairperson of Uganda Episcopal Conference Joseph Anthony Zziwa, the Bishop of Kiyinda Mityana Diocese, the bishops have termed the brutality as abuse of power. 

They called for respect of Article 24 and 44(a) of the Constitution which mandates everybody to respect human rights and dignity.

“The same constitutional provisions guarantee the right to protection from inhuman and degrading treatment by prohibiting any forms of torture or cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment” the statement dated November 8 reads in part. 

The bishops acknowledge the condemnation of the brutality by members of parliament and government; urging all parties in the disagreement to choose dialogue over violence. 

“It will not help to make our country a family where everybody can [not] live in peace and harmony. We, therefore, call upon government to promote dialogue and to always listen to the grievances of its citizens”.  

The statement drafted during the November 4-8 Assembly of the Uganda Episcopal Conference was released to the press on Sunday by Father Phillip Odii, the executive secretary for social communications.

It calls on individuals, communities and institutions to respect the rule of law and endeavor to seek peaceful ways of resolving conflicts. 

The Makerere University fees strike broke out on October 22nd as students protected institution policy to annually increase tuition by 15 per cent. Students opposed to the increment assert that it will affect private sponsored students and deny them basic fundamental human rights – education. 

Although the violence has subsided, scores of students were injured or suspended by the university administration.  


And with such military violence happening in the country of Uganda, the Kabaka of Buganda is one of the vulnerable institutions that must keep quiet at all costs. In the whole history of formulating the new country of Uganda, the Ancient Monarch has suffered the biggest brunt of this self inflicted violence. Now that this country is independent, parliament as the most powerful institution is unfortunately very much in sync with all that the current Executive President of Uganda is doing wrong.






There is now a 46-page report that mentions how Kabaka Muteesa II annoyed the Queen of England when he refused for his country to join the Colonial Federation of East Africa in 1955:

The Ganda love for King and Country on the African Continent

Even the small African black kids are very Patriotic

The Queen tried to withdraw the African recognition of the Kabaka Muteesa as the King of Buganda: 

Muteesa by refusing to join up with this British order,  was blindfolded, bundled into a powerful  plane of the British Royal Air Force and flown into exile in the United Kingdom:

Thursday, October 17, marked exactly 64 years since Kabaka Edward Muteesa II of Buganda returned from forced exile in London, England.
He had lived in England since November 1953 when he was abducted and bundled into a British Royal Air Force plane that was waiting at the Entebbe International Airport tarmac. Muteesa was forced into exile on the orders of Queen Elizabeth II of England.

The arrest
On November 30, 1953, Muteesa was abducted at the Government House, now State House, on Nsamizi Hill in Entebbe.
Muteesa had been in a meeting with then Governor of Uganda, Sir Andrew Cohen, which ended bitterly with the Kabaka opposing the orders given to him by the governor on behalf of the Queen of England.
Some of the contentious issues that that they failed to agree on during their meeting were that Buganda should not secede from Uganda; Buganda to adhere to the 1900 Agreement and Buganda to accept the formation of the East African federation – all of which Muteesa rejected.

The British had anticipated Muteesa’s response, and so they sent two British commandos to arrest the unsuspecting Kabaka. The two soldiers, who were also pilots, had landed at Entebbe the previous night.
As Governor Cohen engaged Muteesa over the sticky issues, the two commandos listened in from the next room. And when Muteesa rejected the British’s demands and got up to leave the room, the governor opened a door to a room where the commandos came out from.
They pounced on the Kabaka, covered his head with a blanket and they headed to the waiting plane. A few minutes later, they were in the sky, heading to England.


There is the Former Governor of Uganda Andrew Cohen (left)  who had no respect at all for the Native African Aspirations. He stands next to the King of Buganda who happened to love his country and his African people with all his life (Kabaka Edward Muteesa II).



Queen unhappy
Kabaka Muteesa’s insistence on Buganda’s position infuriated the Queen of England. Indeed, many did not know that the Queen herself ordered the exiling of Muteesa until a report was later published.
The 46-page report titled Withdraw of the Recognition of Kabaka Muteesa as the King of Buganda: By Her Majesty the Queen of England mentions how the Kabaka irritated the Queen.

“The Kabaka repeatedly made it clear at this meeting that he would not drop the demand for independence (or separation) of Buganda. Moreover, he made it plain that he intended publicly to oppose the decisions of Her Majesty’s government in the Lukiiko and would not undertake to advise the Lukiiko to accept them,” the report reads in part.
The governor repeatedly emphasised the gravity of the situation which would be created by the persistence in this attitude.
He pointed out more than once during the interview that while the Kabaka was entitled to make confidential representations to Her Majesty’s government, if he persisted in his determination to publicly oppose the decisions of Her Majesty’s government this would constitute a breach of agreement.


“It was made clear to the Kabaka that open opposition to the decisions of Her Majesty’s government might lead to the withdraw of recognition from him as native ruler,” the report adds.
The report also quoted governor Cohen mentioning of a meeting in which Muteesa vowed to oppose the Queen of England in as a far Buganda was concerned.
“When at the meeting on November 6 [1953], the Kabaka repeatedly made it clear that, so far from accepting the decisions of the Secretary of State, he would not even agree to keep silent when they were discussed by the Lukiiko [parliament], but would publicly oppose them. It was clear that a very grave situation had arisen.”

Other meetings were held, but Muteesa still stuck to his guns.
The report further mentions that when Muteesa returned with three of his ministers on November 30, 1953, he brought with him a telegram and a letter addressed to the Secretary of State, informing him that he could not sign the undertaking without consulting the Lukiiko.
The governor explained that this consultation was out of the question since the undertaking concerned the line which he would take in his speech at the opening of the Lukiiko.

Finally, the governor, in accordance with his instructions, specifically said if the Kabaka persisted in his attitude, it would involve a breach of the 1900 Agreement which would entitle Her Majesty’s government to withdraw recognition.
The report further reads: “The governor was, therefore, obliged to sign a formal document notifying the Kabaka that that Her Majesty’s government had withdrawn recognition from him under Article 6 of the [1900] Agreement and that was no longer recognised as native ruler of the Province of Buganda.
“He also signed a proclamation bringing into force in Buganda the provisions of the Emergency Powers Order-In-Council, 1939, and signed the necessary regulations under that order.”
Under these regulations, Cohen made an order for the deportation of the Kabaka who was then escorted to Entebbe airport from where he was taken to the United Kingdom.

Governor announces Kabaka’s forced exile
It was almost four hours after the plane lifted from Entebbe that the country got to know about the banishment of the Kabaka.
In those days, the best and quickest means of mass communication was through radio. So governor Cohen went to Radio Uganda and personally announced that Edward Muteesa II was no longer the Kabaka of Buganda and that he had been deported on the orders of the Queen of England and that he was on a plane en route to the United Kingdom.
The news of the deportation of Muteesa was so shocking that one of Buganda’s princesses, Nalinya Zalwango, died upon hearing the announcement on Radio Uganda. Zalwango was close to Kabaka Muteesa.
In his book, The Desecration of my Kingdom published in 1967 when Muteesa was again in exile after the 1966 Buganda Crisis, he mentions the death of his sister.

Muteesa says the morning before he left for meeting with Cohen, he confided in Princess Zalwango and told her that he felt that something peculiar was bound to happen to him in Entebbe.
Meanwhile, from Radio Uganda the governor proceeded to Mengo and addressed the Buganda legislative council, the Lukiiko, during which he suggested that since Muteesa was no longer the king of Buganda, a new Kabaka should be elected. There was a protest inside and outside the Bulange, Buganda’s legislative house.
After tempers cooled, the Buganda parliament decided to take the matter to the courts of law. However, a diplomatic course was also later adopted. In both, Buganda won.

Muteesa returns
And on Monday, October 17, 1955, Kabaka Muteesa returned from exile in England. He arrived aboard the British Overseas Airways Corporation (BOAC), which later became British Airways.
He was welcome by thousands of people who lined up along Entebbe Road. He was entertained by the King’s African Rifles and Uganda Police bands as well as traditional dancers from Buganda.

The following day, October 18, at Namirembe the 1955 Buganda Agreement, also known as the Namirembe Agreement, was signed.
The agreement was a changer in the politics of Uganda; the Kabaka ceased being an absolute monarch.
The 1955 Buganda Agreement stipulated that the Kabaka of Buganda and his prime minister (Katikkiro) would be elected by the Lukiiko.

KABAKA akyalemeddwa okusulamu maka ge amatongole aga Twekobe agasangibwa mu lubiri lwe e Mengo wadde nga gaamalirizibwa ne gakwasibwa mmengo mu Butongole.

Ennyumba ya Twekobe yaddaabirizibwa yonna n’ezzibwawo bulungi era kati etemagana, kyokka kabaka tagisulangamu.


Omulimu gw’okugiddaabiriza gwamalirizibwa mu 2009, nga gwakulirwa Mw. James Mulwana.

Okuva olwo, abantu ab’enjawulo bazze basaba Mmengo ekole enteekateeka esobozesa Kabaka okusula mu Lubiri lwe luno olukulu mu Buganda.

Okusaba kuno kwakulemberwamu Abataka abaasisinkana Kabaka gye buvuddeko ne bamusaba atandike okusula mu Lubiri e Mmengo.

Kabaka, mu kwanukula yabategeeza nti okusaba kwabwe yali ajja kukutuukiriza era n’alagira gavumenti ye ekole enteekateeka ezimusobozesa okutandika okusula mu Twekobe.

Wabula omwogezi w’Obwakabaka Mw. Peter Mayiga bwe yatuukiriddwa, yagambye nti ekikyalemesezza Kabaka okusula mu Twekobe kwe kuba nti temuli ntebe ne kalonda omulala ateekeddwa okubeera mu nju.

Wabula ensonda e Mmengo z’ategeezezza nti Kabaka, agera ekiseera n’asulako mu lubiri lwe kyokka tasula mu Twekobe, ajja ne weema ye gye basimba wabweru wa Twekobe ne yeebaka omwo nti era ne ku mulundi gwe yasembyeyo okusisinkana Abataka mu Lubiri yasuzeemu.

Mu twekobe ye ayingiramu kuba mulimu ofiisi ye mw’akolera emirimu gye n’okusisinkana abantu be. Ate era buli lw’aba agabula Obuganda, abatwala mu Twekobe ne Nnabagereka gy’agabulira abagenyi be.

Twekobe erimu buli kintu kyonna ng’amasannyalaze, amazzi n’ebirala kyokka Mw. Mayiga yagambye nti ekikyabulamu z’entebe n’ebikozesebwa ebirala ebitonotono. Naye teyayogedde kiseera bintu bino lwe binassibwamu Kabaka asobole okugikozesa.

Kangawo ayogedde ku Twekobe Kangawo Gideon Kisitu yagambye nti, Kabaka tasula mu Twekobe, Nnaabagereka yekka y’asula mu Twekobe, Kabaka alina okuzimbirwa ennyumba eyiye emabega wa Twekobe. Ate era ne Namulondo erina okuzimbirwa ennyumba yaayo mu Lubiri.

Kuno kw’ogatta eng’oma za Mujaguzo. Kangawo yagambye nti ennyumba eziwera nga musanvu ze zeetaagisa okuzimbwa mu lubiri nga Kabaka tannadda mu butongole okusula mu Lubiri. Bino nga biwedde, Kabaka asobola
okusiima n’asalawo okudda mu lubiri lwe era tulina kufungiza okulaba nga Kabaka azimbirwa ennyumba eyogeddwaako.

Yagasseeko nti waliwo n’ensonga enkulu etesaana kubuusibwa maaso ey’okunaaziibwako omusaayi ogwayiikaamu mu
biseera by’entalo. “Abantu bangi abattibwanga mu Lubiri nga lufuuliddwa enkambi y’amagye.

Naye ensonga eno ya bajjajjaffe abataka be balina okugikwatako bagitereeze,” Kangaawo bwe yagasseeko.
