Nvanungi is not a real Buganda Princess

Standard

Sheila Nvanungi

I am writing to set the record straight about the TV programme which was aired on Sunday 7th March 2010 on BBC Three at 9pm.

I am a true Princess from the Buganda Kingdom and my brother Kabaka (king) Ronald Muwenda Mutebi II is the present ruling King of Buganda. The woman featured on the programme Sheila Nvanungi IS NOT A BUGANDA PRINCESS OR A MEMBER OD THE BUGANDA ROYAL FAMILY. This woman started out using the name Princess Sheila Nvanungi as a stage name but now to put in reality, it’s shocking. She is well known in Uganda capital Kampala as a singer and has appeared in a film but since 2004, she has hardly brought out any songs and was rumoured to have many problems.

We are angry and shocked that BBC could make such a programme without verifying the authenticity of this person. I watched last years programme ”The Undercover Princes” and enjoyed it but after seeing this one yesterday, it has made me question if these people are true Prince and Princess or has it all been staged by the BBC for the sake of getting viewing ratings and good entertainment!

1. I hope the people who watched the programme yesterday wondered why we never went inside any Palace. The Buganda Kingdom has three Palaces named Banda, Kireka and Bamunanika. None of the three was shown on the show let alone see this woman inside.

2. What this woman was wearing as our tradition attire is not what we were. Our attire is called a busuuti but this woman was dressed like a Zulu from South Africa.

3. This woman acted very primitive but Members of the Buganda Royal Family are well educated who have attended Schools, Colleges and Universities here in Britain and America. Even at this moment, we have young members of our Royal family at boarding school here. Yes, we do know what jacket potato, beef burger and coleslaw are but this woman did not have a clue.

It is shocking how primitive this woman came across in the programme. She has ashamed, humiliated and embarrassed the Buganda Kingdom. I hope you will be able to print this for us in order to set the record straight.

Princess Elizabeth Mpologoma.

  1. you will even be more shocked that when the ‘Princess’ was setting off for the prpogramme recording, she was ‘set off’ with all the blessings from the Katikiro of Buganda. In fact, the process of setting her off was televised on all TV stations in Uganda and radio stations. So if the Buganda institution ‘blessed’ her, why do you raise a finger? By the way, i all along thought that she was a real Princess!!!!

  2. Hello
    Re: BB3- Undercover Princess on sundays at 9.00pm.
    Please could you clarity for us whether Princess Nvanugi is really part of our precious royal family. It is in a way embarrasing to see one from our royal family parading on British TV looking for a husband. If she is a fake then we request that you as our flag beareres contact the BBc and correct this wrong.
    Thank you

  3. Mr. Joshua Kato

    As a journalist working for Uganda’s leading newspaper, I am sure that you base your statements on Facts.

    I would, therefore, be grateful for some clarification on the following:

    1. You state that “Nvanungi was set off with all the blessings from the Katikkiro of Buganda.” Can you provide proof that the Katikkiro actually recognizes her as a Princess of Buganda? I am not interested in just an article by “Our Reporter”, the contents of which could have originated from anywhere and without the Katikkiro’s knowledge.

    2. You also state that “I all along thought that she was a real Princess.” Can you tell us who her father is/was? At one time, she claimed to be a daughter of the late Prince. George Juuko. She then went on to say that she is 31 yrs old. However, Prince Juuko died long before she was born and could not possibly be her father.

    I honestly hope that you can provide the above information. If you cannot, it will make us doubt the level and intensity of research that goes into the articles in New Vision and sister papers. In other words, you will have dealt a big blow to the credibility of your newspapers.

    Princess Elizabeth Mpologoma.

  4. Some of our reporters in the Entertainment section have picked up the story. We shall have the truth and nothing but the truth soon.

  6. Hi!

    This is what the editor of http://www.ugandarecord.co.ug has had to say on the matter.

    Editor’s note: A website on world royalty (http://www.royalark.net/Uganda/buganda8.htm) lists Nvanungi as a princess:
    17) Prince (Omulangira) George David Onesiphorus Juuko. b. at Mengo, 9th May 1930 (s/o Sara Nayiga), educ. King’s Coll., Budo, Namilanyo Coll., and Makerere Univ.

  7. As I previously stated, this woman (Nvanungi) is not a daughter of the late Prince George Juuko. The Editor of Uganda Record, in his annex to my letter on this issue, has correctly shown that Prince Juuko died in March 1971. How, therefore, could he have fathered a child who was born on 1st January 1982, as Sheila Nvanungi is claiming? Going by the dates, Nvanungi was born a whole 11 years after Prince Juuko died. We know Prince Juuko’s children and she has never been or will never be one of them.

    I rest my case for the time Being.

  8. Ms Mpologoma Elizabeth,

    1/4 There are some of us on the UAH forum with a terrific propensity for being unnecessarily confused and we might need your assistance here.

    2/4 You say, and I quote you, “I am a true Princess from the Buganda Kingdom and my brother Kabaka (king) Ronald Muwenda Mutebi II is the present ruling King of Buganda” . This probably means you are Kabaka Mutebi’s sister. We tend to assume that Kabaka Mutebi’s father had 18 offspring, 11 of whom are male and 7 of whom are female.

    3/4 The seven females, whom we suppose would properly call the reigning Kabka their brother are listed below:

    1. Princess Dorothy Kabonesa Namukaabya, Nassolo, whose mother was Damali Nakawombe born in 1951.

    2. Princess Dina Kigga Mukarukidi, whose mother was Beatrice Kabasweka.

    3. Princess Anne Sarah Kagere Nandawula, whose mother is Kate Ndagire. Born at Mengo in 1951.

    4. Princess Catherine Agnes Nabaloga, the current Lubuga; whose mother was Kate Ndagire.

    5. Princess Alice Mpologoma Zaalwango, whose mother was Edith Kasozi. She was born in 1961, she died on March 23, 2005.

    6. Princess Stella Ndagire, born in Nairobi Kenya, whose mother was Lady Ngatho.

    7. Princess Diana Balizza Muggale Teyeggala, born in Kampala in October 1966.

    1/4 Who, exactly, of those seven princesses are you?

    Lance Corporal (Rtd) Patrick Otto

  9. Otto Patrick,

    Elizabeth Mpologoma is Omumbejja – its not appropriate for you to address her as “Ms Elizabeth Mpologoma”
    It does no require you to be a genius in order to understand Mpologoma’s comments unless you have some other motives.
    In case you want to interact with Omulangira Juuko Walugembe Kaasabbanda, i have all his contacts just let me know.

    Peterson Ssendi

  10. Ms Elizabeth Mpologoma,

    1/6 After we have heard from you on who of the seven sisters of Kabaka Mutebi you are exactly, you might also have to help us further to clarify on the question of the parentage of Sheila Nvanungi.

    2/6 Although you are now telling us that she cannot possibly be a daughter to the Late Prince George Juuko (and you are right) because the latter died in 1971 and Sheila Nvanungi was born in 1982, it would appear that your assertion is nothing but a straw man.

    3/6 Why? Because according to available information, there are two Prince George Juukos:

    1. Prince George David Onesiphorus Juuko (1930-1971), the one you refer to above, one of the twenty sons of Kabaka Chwa II.
    2. Prince George William Walugembe Kassabbanda Juuko (b.1954).

    4/6 The first one is the father of the second one and the second (first-born of his nine offspring), the latter is the father of Sheila Nvanungi according to the information we have. The Prince Juuko who passed away in 1971 would therefore appear to be the grandfather of Sheila Nvanungi. Not so?

    5/6 This puts your crusade and line of argument into serious question, hence my straw-man-claim above. Most importantly, this leaves us wondering who you are exactly, especially given that as a Royal, you should know the rest of your family.

    6/6 So, again, before you dismiss Sheila Nvanungi as a Royal, are you yourself a royal?

    Lance Corporal (Rtd) Patrick Otto

  11. Thank you mr Otto for that information,i also searched for Elizabeth Mpologoma on Royal ark but her name didn’t come up.It will be very helpful if “princess Mpologoma” could tell us from which linage she descends from.Otherwise we will add her on the long list of buganda royal pretenders.
    muwangamusisi@yahoo.com

  12. Mr Sendi,

    My messages clearly show I do not understand Ms Mpologoma’s; that is the very reason why I am seeking for some clarity. And no! I have not sought to interact with Omulangira Juuko Walugembe Kaasabbanda as you want to make it appear! So, I will not ask for his contact from you.

    What I was trying to clarify in mind is clear for all to see, except probably you Mr Sendi who has chosen to interpret my message in a very interesting manner.

    Before you force me to address Ms Mpologoma as anything else but “Ms”, may be you could help me. She says she is Kabkak Mutebi’s sister. Kabakak Mutebi has seven sisters listed below:

    1. Princess Dorothy Kabonesa Namukaabya, Nassolo, whose mother was Damali Nakawombe born in 1951.

    2. Princess Dina Kigga Mukarukidi, whose mother was Beatrice Kabasweka.

    3. Princess Anne Sarah Kagere Nandawula, whose mother is Kate Ndagire. Born at Mengo in 1951.

    4. Princess Catherine Agnes Nabaloga, whose mother was Kate Ndagire, the current Lubuga.

    5. Princess Alice Mpologoma Zaalwango, whose mother was Edith Kasozi. She was born in 1961, she died on March 23, 2005.

    6. Princess Stella Ndagire, born in Nairobi Kenya, whose mother was Lady Ngatho.

    7. Princess Diana Balizza Muggale Teyeggala, born in Kampala in October 1966.

    Mr Sendi, of those seven, who is Ms Mpologoma Elizabeth? No hidden motives here Mr Sendi.

  14. Omumbejja Elizabeth Mpologoma,

    Webale nnyo. Might the confusion be arising out of two Juuko’s?

    We have:

    Prince (Omulangira) George David Onesiphorus Juuko. b. at Mengo, 9th May 1930 (s/o Sara Nayiga), educ. King’s Coll., Budo, Namilanyo Coll., and Makerere Univ. Internal Examiner of Accounts, Buganda 1952-1963, Assist. Accountant Uganda Electricity Brd. 1963. He d. at Kampala, March 1971, having had issue, four sons and five daughters:

    The above mentioned prince was born 9th May, 1930 born of Sara Nayiga and dies March 1971.

    The above prince produced four sons and five daughers one of the sons seems to be

    * a) Prince (Omulangira) George William Jjuuko Walugembe Kassabbanda. b. 1954 (“elder brother of Kabaka Ronald Mutebi) (s/o the Naabagareka Damali Catherine Nnakawombe). JW Victoria Agro Industries. m. Muzaana Miriam. He had issue, a son and a daughter:

    Born 1954 and still living???? son of Naabagereka Damali Catherine Nnakawombe.

    The latter Juuko is the ALLEGED father of Sheila Nvanungi?

    That is according to the information from the website.

    Hope this helps.

    GSK

  15. I am finding it hard to understand Mpologoma’s protest. Ok it’s fine that you are living in the UK as a Royal family member but does it also have any kind of way it contributes to the morals up bringing of the next Buganda generation?
    Her (Mpologoma’s) claim is that she feels mis represented and she questions the authenticity of Nvanungi. I am as well wondering just in case Nvanungi was from the Balangira clan wouldn’t she count as a Princess and then what is the relevance of the Balangira and Bambejja clan.
    KHARIM NTAMBI

  16. WBK,

    Is she different from the Princess Sheila Cinderella Nvanungi, daughter of Prince George William Walugembe Kassabbanda Juuko (b.1954), grand daughter of Prince George David Onesiphorus Juuko (1930-1971), and great grand daughter of Kabaka Chwa II.

    Check on this webpage: http://www.royalark.net/Uganda/buganda8.htm and look under offspring No.17 of the 40 children of Kabaka Daudi Chwa.

    It might be Sheila Nvanungi’s co-royals who are “bammaring” and not the journalists, unless the lady is an impersonator of the real princess in the Kabaka Chwa line.

    On the contrary, it is Elizabeth Mpologoma who seems to generate a bit of wasi wasi at leat in my corporal’s mind.

    Lance Corporal (Rtd) Patrick Otto

  17. L_Cpl otto:

    I do not know much about Ms Nvannungi. I know she is a good singer. I suppose the issue here is her claim to be the duaghter of someone who died long before she was born. But that is not conclusive. What if her birth involved fertility clinic? She could come out and say that. I just do not know.

    Let the media help and clarify matters once and for all. It should ask her the contradiction about the gaps in the death of her alleged father and her birth. Who knows.

    BBC used to be good and still is, but it has made a few errors about stories in uganda. Why did not they go for a real princess?
    WB Kyijomanyi

  18. WBK,

    After all, it seems my message was not that clear. To illustrate, I think one of these days when Kabaka Mutebi states the obvious by noting that his father was Kabaka Mutesa some people will jump up to dismiss him as fake on grounds that Kabaka Mutesa died in 1854; that the only possibility is Kabaka Mutebi’s birth involving a fertility clinic.

    Sheila Nvanungi claimed that her father is Prince George Juuko and indeed, there is a Prince George Juuko who passed away 11 years before Sheila Nvanungi was born; just like there is a Kabaka Mutesa who passed away 101 years before Kabaka Mutebi was born. The Kabaka Mutesa who happens to be Kabaka Mutebi’s father is Mutesa II, whereas the one who passed away in 1854 was Mutesa I. So Kabaka Mutebi would be perfectly in order to state that his father was Kabaka Mutesa. We would only require Kabaka Mutebi to be specific, or to convince that he is not an impersonator. …(to avoid similar confusion when Prince Jjunju in future states that Kabaka Mutebi was his father, let us call the reigning Mutebi, Kabaka Mutebi II, given that there was a Mutebi I…and may be we should talk of Jjunju II, since there is another Jjunju in the past)

    Likewise, the Prince George Juuko that fathered Sheila Nvanungi is Prince George (William Walugembe Kassabbanda) Juuko, born in 1954 and according to available information, still living; while the Prince George Juuko that many of you have interested yourselves in for the sake of excommunicating Sheila Nvanungi from royalty is Prince George David Onesiphorus Juuko (1930-1971). The latter George was the father of the former. Like the Kabaka Mutebi situation, Sheila Nvanungi should only be required to specify that her father is Prince George Juuko II, or alternatively, to indicate that her father is the “William Walugembe Kassabbanda”, not the “David Onesiphorus”.

    I don’t think you looked at the details on the link in my message. What you would see there is that, Prince Juuko I was the 17th of Kabaka Daudi Chwa II’s sons (one of 46 offspring in all). Prince Juuko II (Sheila Nvanungi’s father) is the first born of Prince Juuko I’s nine offspring, one of whom, the 8th, is Princess Irene Jemimah Ndagire the lady that vigorously challenged Kabaka Mutebi’s accession to the throne and even went ahead to assume Nalinyaship for two weeks in mid-january 1999. Sheila Cinderella Nvanungi is Princess Ndagire’s niece.

    The only question should be whether the Nvanungi that appeared on BBC TV is impersonating the actual Princess Nvanungi who actually exists. For some of you, the problem with Princess Nvanungi seems to be, “ayeyisizza nga Otto, omukopi”….omukopolo…I am reminded here of some forumists that were dismissive of Namasole Sarah Natolo when she correctly stated that she is Kabaka Mutesa II’s mother. I do remember someone asking this question: “Do you know more about Ms Sarah Natolo? She is certainly not the mother of the late Kabaka Mutesa II. So who is she?”

    Anyhow, what many of you should be doing instead is asking Ms Elizabeth Mpologoma who she is exactly. She has called herself Omumbejja and that seems to be enough for many of you for now!

    But clearly, and most importantly, the establishment seems to be uneasy with the non-Mutesa side of Kabaka Chwa II’s lineage. Have I seen them in the news ref. Kigo land claims? Plenty of in-roads; multitudes of weak flanks for the flame bird, Wakasanke! Interesting times are yet to come.

The quotation you are posting,I was referring to “Princess elizabeth mpologoma” and i agreed with you that there is a question mark on her royalty, in today’s posting i was clearly talking about Princess Sheila Nvannungi that she’s listed as one of the great granddaughters of Kabaka Chwa. Buy some reading glasses my Brother.
    EDWARD MUSISI

  23. L_Cpl Otto:

    Like I said, it is up to Ms Nvannungi to clarify. She can call a press conference at reveal details about her births now that she has been challenged. She can end this thing right now by telling the press who her parents are or were.

    I have nothing against her because I do not know much about her. you see this thing would not have arisen had Uganda had proper birth registration in place.

  24. Greetings Princess Elizabeth! Thanks for this enlightment. I am
    actually related to some of your family members. Regards. James
    Galabuzi Mukasa

  25. WBK,

    The issue you raised is a non-issue! It was based on lack of very basic information/being mobilised by a Ms Mpologoma whose status you should rather be questioning. Princess Nvanungi’s father is Prince George William Walugembe Kassabbanda Juuko, and he is still alive. He was born in 1954, he is the first born of Prince George David Onesiphorus Juuko (1930-1971). Like I say elsewhere, if Kabaka Mutesa stated that his father was Mutesa, one would not be justified to dismiss his claim on grounds that Mutesa died 101 years ago, long before Mutebi was born.

    All that business of “away games” ought to be too low for you to invoke especially in light of a message of yours on harassment of women.

    The person you claim to be Princess Nvanungi’s father is actually her grandfather. Both her father and her grandfather are Prince Juuko. The grandfather, Prince George David Onesiphorus Juuko, is one of Daudi Chwa’s 17 sons. Her father is one of the latter’s 9 offspring, one of whom is Princess Irene Ndagire of the 1999 controversy. Princess Ndagire is an aunt of Princess Nvanungi.

    I still recommend that you look at this link: http://www.royalark.net/Uganda/buganda8.htm.

    90 get Independence medals at Kololo

    Publication date: Friday, 9th October, 2009

    By Steven Candia

    OVER 90 people, both civilians and soldiers were awarded medals at the 47th Independence celebrations at the Kololo Ceremonial grounds yesterday.

    Though the Master of Ceremony of the Chancery Gen. Elly Tumwine at the beginning of the ceremony said a total of 83 people would be honoured, it later turned out that up 97 of them were honoured with either the prestigious Nalubaale or Luwero Triangle Award.

    President Museveni personally decorated the first five nominees and left senior army officials to decorate the rest.

    While the Nalubaale award is given to civilian activists who contributed to the political development of Uganda through armed struggles or civil disobedience, the Luweero Triangle medal is awarded as climax of the armed struggle of the people of Uganda to army officers who joined the struggle against dictatorship or civilians who worked closely with freedom fighters against the dictatorships, Tumwine said.

    Of the 97 who received medals at the public ceremony, 39 people among them Maumbe Mukhwana of Mbale, Isreal Kayongo, Rhoda Kalema and Christine Muhindo, a Presidential Assistant in charge mobilisation western Uganda, were honoured with the Nalubaale medal. Also in the category was Mzee Lusiano Kerifa, who was honoured posthumously, having passed away a fortnight ago. His son Brig. Peter Kerim received the medal on his behalf.

    Those in this category were honoured for their contribution to the political development of this country between 1981 and 1986.

    Another seven people among them Prince Juuko Walugembe and Olive Zzizinga received Honorary ranks under the Luweero medal along side 51 army officers, ranging from the rank of Lieutenant to Colonels.

    Tumwine said those recognize yesterday were part of an earlier list of over 3000 people who President Museveni approved to receive the three medals––Nalubaale–Luweero and Damu medals. Part of those on the list were awarded medals during the Heroes Day celebrations in Hoima.

    “The purpose is to encourage patriotism so that Ugandans are willing to sacrifice for our country and do what it takes to make our country a better place,” Tumwine said, adding that more people on the list will be honoured at future functions.

    “This function will continue at many public functions given that there are many names and we are picking just a few. We can not read all of them on one occasion. We shall be serialising them,” he said.

    He appealed to the public to forward names of people they think qualify to be awarded.

    “If you know of any person who you think deserves being given medals contained in the Act, you are free to suggest those names and send them to our Chancery of the Presidential Awards Committee on Bauman House,” Tumwine said.

  28. It is obvious from the available information that Sheila Nvanungi is a Muganda princess (AKA Mumbejja). On the other hand, Ms Mpologooma (for now I hesitate to call her a princess) who claimed that she is a sister to Kabaka Ronald Mutebi has so far failed to back up her claim. This leaves her looking like an imposter. I also doubt that all Buganda royals have attended schools in UK and or Britain -given Ugandans recent history and the fact that some may not have had access to royal assets
    Bila

  29. Dear All

    I find the comments generated by Om. Sheila Nvanungi authenticity quite interesting. What intrigues me the most is that apart from Om Mpologoma, most of the commentaries are from individuals with little knowledge of the structure of the Royal Family.

    It is true that i do not know her parentage but she is surely,without any shade of doubt a royal.

    We have three structures of Royalty; 1) Abengooma 2) Abakanaabba and 3) abemituuba depending on how close you are to the throne. Obviously abengooma are the Kabaka himself, his siblings and children, cousins and distant cousins fall in the other two.

    But it does not matter how distant you are from the throne, a Princess is a Princess. We are a family or lineage and not a clan. That is the difference between Abalangira and Bambejja from the other clans.

    As you may imagine since the abolition of the Kingdoms, some members of this royal lineage were not as fortunate as others and so there is a big likelihood of finding many uneducated members of the royal family. It is not right to use knowledge of burgers to tell a royal apart from the other clans.

    i would like to sign off by saying that it is unwise to bring such a discussion on such fora. Granted that it is news worthy but it is not the right place to question Nvanuungi’s parentage. I would not contribute to this but when read Om Mpologooma’s contribution, i felt obliged to clear the air on this subject.

  31. This is the Walugembe who took part in various liberation struggles, including as a member of UFM and Museveni`s NRA. He is a fairly known public figure too. However, intil now, i did not know that he is Princess Nvanungi`s father. More light needs to be shade on this-probably by the Princess herself.
    KATO

  32. I have read the debate about Princess Sheila Nvanungi with interest. The views of the ‘rival’ Princess Elizabeth Mpologoma have been of particular interest. Since I am no royal and am unlikely to become one any time soon, it follows therefore that I have no techniques or instruments to measure royalness. Therefore I will avoid becoming cannon fodder for those fighting over for royalty and royalness.

    However, I allow me to pick a bone with Princess Mpologoma over the allegations she has directed against her fellow royal Princess Sheila Nvanungi.

    1) I think it was improper for Princess Elizabeth to rush to denounce Princess Nvanungi without doing proper research. Since Princess Elizabeth is a royal why didn’t she call the Katikkiro to establish the true facts about Princess Sheila Nvanungi? She could have even called her brother Kabaka Mutebi the chief royal to give guidance on the issue! What if it turns out that indeed Princess Nvanungi is a true royal how will princess Elizabeth correct the damage she has done to her?

    2) Are all members of the Buganda royal family really highly educated and is high education one of the requirements to be a royal? Me thinks no! I know one or two royals from Buganda who are respected but whose education levels are not something to write home about!

    3) That princess Nvanungi ashamed Buganda because she did not know certain terms such as jacket potato, beef burger and coleslaw! etc Really?! Is Princess Nvanungi expected know English street words that are not commonly used in Uganda where she grew up and lives most of her life?

    4) Does being seen and pictured in the corridors of a palace qualify one to be a royal? I know that most Buganda princes’ and princesses’ never get into the palaces as a matter of right. They can only go there as visitors of the King. If Princess Nvannugi had claimed that she was the daughter of Kabaka Mutebi, then probably we would be right to demand a picture of her strutting in the palaces. But she has not!!

    5) We must note that Princess Nvanungi is not one of those royals who live off the sweat of the of the Buganda peasants – so she must work for her survival. This explains her singing career as well as her appearance in the BBC program The Undercover Princes. .

    Should Princess Nvanungi be thrown out of the BBC program then Princess Elizabeth Mpologoma should be sued if it is found out that Princess Nvanungi is in fact a genuine royal.

    Peter Okello Maber

  33. peter okello,
    in the actual fact, l know one Ugandan Murundi from Buddu who was in C.A. and 6th parliament claiming to be a Mulangira (prince), and he now wants to be a Buganda Regional Premier.
    there is a difference, between the royal family (olulyo olulangira) and royal clan (ekika ekirangira). Among olulyo olulangira (royal family) there are abalangira (princes) n’abambejja (pricesses) of Mujaguzo (sons and daughters amd bropthers and sisters of the reigning king) and aba Kanabba. Then the rest under Ssaabalangira belong to the royal clan where the clan head is the Kabaka assisted by Ssaabalangira. Given our history, the royal clan, are the descendents of Kabaka Kimera. Howver on and off disputes have been around where some disxcedents of Kabaka Kintu like Mpoligima (Lion), Ngo (Lepord) and Mbwa (dog) clans have been claiming some royalty. Then there are those adopted (okutta emikago) by early Kabakas), then royal families from conquered and neighbouring kingdoms like Ababiito of Kooki, and the like.
    One journalist told me, that Prince Jjuuko Walugembe had made an impression before NRA chief during bush days, that he was a brother of Sir Edward Muteesa. That on learning that it was not so, the President started distancing himself from him for being a false claimant. But what is true is that Jjuuko played a prominent role for the the consolidation of the then Ssaabataka of Buganda, Ronalad Muwenda Mutebi ll. His spritual/cultral role is also acknowledged by Brig. Pecos Kuteesa.

  34. Dear All

    I find the comments generated by Om. Sheila Nvanungi authenticity quite interesting. What intrigues me the most is that apart from Om Mpologoma, most of the commentaries are from individuals with little knowledge of the structure of the Royal Family.

    It is true that i do not know her parentage but she is surely,without any shade of doubt a royal.

    We have three structures of Royalty; 1) Abengooma 2) Abakanaabba and 3) abemituuba depending on how close you are to the throne. Obviously abengooma are the Kabaka himself, his siblings and children, cousins and distant cousins fall in the other two.

    But it does not matter how distant you are from the throne, a Princess is a Princess. We are a family or lineage and not a clan. That is the difference between Abalangira and Bambejja from the other clans.

    As you may imagine since the abolition of the Kingdoms, some members of this royal lineage were not as fortunate as others and so there is a big likelihood of finding many uneducated members of the royal family. It is not right to use knowledge of burgers to tell a royal apart from the other clans.

    i would like to sign off by saying that it is unwise to bring such a discussion on such fora. Granted that it is news worthy but it is not the right place to question Nvanuungi’s parentage. I would not contribute to this but when read Om Mpologooma’s contribution, i felt obliged to clear the air on this subject.

    Omulangira Richard Ssuna (Dr)

  35. It’s good to hear from Omulangira Ssuna(Dr). To be honest, i dont know where this is going because i also remember being told when i was young that ‘TULI BALANGILA BE SSESE’. I was told the whole history by one of my late uncles, around 1987, about the whole thing but i completely forgot. What i remember though is that the ‘BALANGILA BE SSESE’ had big chests and were mainly fisher men. So im looking out as i watch my chest grew bigger to see if i indeed have royal blood in me.

    The point im trying to make here is that Buganda is a bundle of different tribes. Some of these tribes were kingdoms themselves and had their own royal lineages. But these kingdoms were assimilated into Buganda and are now paying alligiance to the current recognised royal family , now headed by Kabaka Mutebi. So probably, Nvanungi may be one of those princesses/princess like me. BINO EBINTU SIBYAKWESOKA.You see even Brother Katerega of Newvision is some form of a prince.

    Yours faithfully,

    Prince Abbey Kibirige Semuwemba

  36. Brother Abbey Ssemuwemba, l appreciate your explanation and l entirely agree with it. But what l want to clarify is that, l am a discendent of Kabaka Kimera, and we annually gather at Kibula in Songo every end of August and beginning of September, my sub clan is of Kateregga Luguma at Bukakkata, we gather every December. l am the lineage head of Makaato at Kisawo-Buddu, we always gather there or at Nnambiriizi-Mawogola, Mbaale-Kitaasa-Bukomansimbi or Ng’ando Butambala in the month of June. So lam not”kind of prince” the way some Barundi in opposition labbelled me, but l am a true prince. But l am not claiming for any thing, for l am an active politician and a republican, who is interested in serving my country and my people without accident of birth or heredity. But l believe in traditional institutions which are not politically partisan.
    AHMED KATEREGA

  37. Ahmed Kateregga, thank you very much for your good and informative contribution on this topic. I would also like to add on the following:

    1. Juuko Kassabbanda Walugembe.

    Poor man, no one should have involved him in all this. This is a guy who, when he first went to join the bush war, lied that he was a brother (yes, a brother) of the late Sir Edward Mutesa. Somewhere along the line, he changed to become a son of Sir Edward Mutesa and, therefore, a brother to Kabaka Ronald Mutebi. He was still claiming this as recent as last month in the Observer newspaper. Now some people are trying to pass him on as a son of the late Prince George Juuko. When Museveni and Co found out his lies, they dumped him. (Point of Information here: the Juuko who was one time Uganda’s High Commissioner to Nigeria is a totally different person from this guy)

    2. Sheila Nvanungi.

    This woman is not related to Juuko Walugembe. It is even quite possible that they do not know each other at all. After making some discreet inquiries, I have been informed by several people in the know that Sheila Nvanungi is the daughter of the former driver of the lateNnalinya Ndagire (Sir Edward Mutesa’s sister). There you have it.

    If anybody wants information about another person’s family, it makes sense to make that person (s) the first point of contact. This is what I have done by speaking to some of the surviving children of the late Prince George Juuko. They are adamant that Juuko Walugembe is not their brother and that they do not even know him at all.

    It is really surprising that a number of people have totally depended on websites on this issue. This has resulted in a lot of confusion and speculation. The source of information on these websites is, at best, unknown and therefore unreliable and, at the very worst, possibly fraudulent.

    Before anyone disputes or challlenges what I have stated above, it will be better for Sheila Nvanungi herself to make a comment one way or the other. However, I know that she cannot do so because her lie has now been rumbled.

  38. Miss Mpologoma, Please to be a descent royal as you are called it is not for you to address these issues.. Royals leave these to their publicist… what are you doing.. is this due to lack of education on your side too and protocol alignment in your life?

    JBR KAVUMA (BOSTON)

  45. Mr. Deo Kansansula,
    What does Juuko Walugembe say about Nvannungi? Does he acknowledge her as his daughter?
    When Juuko Walugembe made the claim that he was Kabaka Mutebi’s brother, did he make that statement in Luganda? Remember in Luganda, your father’s brother’s son (your cousin) is called Muganda wo which literally translates to your brother. Even the lady who complained to BBC claimed she is a the Kabaka is her true brother. We are not even sure she is his cousin.

    DId Prince (Omulangira) George David Onesiphorus Juuko bear a son called
    George William Walugembe Kassabbanda Juuko? It is not enough that some members of the family refuse to acknowledge him. That can happen especially if the mothers were different and/or they grew up without knowing him. Is that Juuko Walugembe different from the Juuko walugembe presented here.
    Did you try to inquire from Juuko Walugembe himself on this issue or you only inquired
    from those opposed to the royalty claim?
    Thank you

  46. Until we see that information posted here, some of us do not believe that Mpologoma or Nvanungi is a princess as claimed. No we are not going to be baited into joining her facebook page. We are not her groupies. It is not for nothing that Baganda engage in Okulanya during which one clearly cites his or her parental lineage. Iti is to avoid confusions such as we have be entertained to by this saga. S

  47. OMUMBEJJA ELIZABETH MPOLOGOMA

    You are starting to worry me a little, why are you so bothered about Nvanungi’s claim to be a princess. Is it because you had to kind of fight for you place in the royal family cause am sure you are not the only princess so where are the others in all of this?
    I like the Nvanungi and I have always known her unlike you the so called real mumbejja. So do us a favour and get a life cause if you are a royal, its in your blood no matter what people say or claim to be.
    Unless you are telling us something.

  48. Maybe they couldn’t find a ‘real princess’ willing to take part in their program.

  49. At that rate it seems like a very high percentage of people in Uganda/ Buganda must be princes/princesses. Nobody could possibly know them all.
    This is a very interesting twist to the BBC’s Reality TV Fairytale for Grownups.

  50. @ Bilrungi

    Please think before you post. I was responding to earlier posts who were saying that they wanted to know what Princess Nvannungi Sheillah had to say, regarding how she fits into the royal structure. It is common sense to seek information from the source to help to come to a conclusion. I did not tell you to join her page. Simply that if you have facebook you can view her page (without joining) where she has stated her family tree.

  51. Thank for all your comments.

    I just wonder why that woman Mpologoma should contest about Nvanungi that she is not a true Princess.

    Mpologoma is not a Princess and ask any of the late Sir Edward Mutesa’s children, if you happen to be close to them. They tell you the same story, we don’t know that woman, we don’t know where she grew up, which schools she attended, when she left Uganda, who her mother was, she never attended the Muteesa’ s funeral as a child, etc

  52. I must say that Mpologoma is a complete waste for judging Nvanungi that she is not a true Princess. Mpologoma herself is not a Princess and no hidden agendas.

    She is full of jealous of a girl who is supposed to be her daugher since Nvanungi and her children are of the same age. She a hypocrite, cornwoman who has corned so many people through lies that she is a Princess. She is an opportunist who has nothing and lives in Ilford – Goodmayes, in a tiny flat, consuming state benefits with her husband, David Mukasa. She has hurt so many people, here in the UK, London and Uganda. She is not wanted any where because of her character.

    People just despise her, nobody respects her because of her arrogance. She has nothing despite bragging that she is very rich. She is a woman in question. If you happen to be close to Sir Edward Mutesa’s children, they all tell you the same story.

    This is what they say: She is not our sister, don’t know her mother, we don’t know where she grew up, we don’t know which schools she attended, we don’t know how old she is, we don’t know who she is following in terms of her age, we don’t know her husband and her children, we don’t know who named her “Mpologoma”, she was never introduced to us as our sister and never participated in any kingdom rituals, she never attended the funeral of Sir Edward Mutesa. The facts are there and the list is endless.

    Mpologoma, you should be ashamed of yourself to query Nvanungi. Alot of Baganda are questioning her royality and it’s on each and everyone’s lips. If she doesn’t know, then she is the only one. Mpologoma, if you know what people think of you, you should have strangled yourself along time ago. Mind your Business and you will see what God will do for you. LIVE PEOPLE ALONE. STOP CREATING ENEMIES EVERY WHERE YOU GO. FOR YOUR SAKE!!!!

  53. WELL THIS IS MY FIRST TIME TO COMMENT ON THIS… I HAPPEN TO LIVE IN LONDON N I WATCHED THE SHOW… I HV TO SAY NVANNUGI DID US A GRATE FAVOUR.. UGANDA WE ARE NORMALLY SHOWN OFF AS MALARIA , HIV/AIDS VICTIMS …. BUT HERE COMES A WOMAN TO PRESENT HER COUNTRY N PIPO ARE CRITCIZING HER INSTEAD OF SUPPORTING HER….

  54. Do you know I have read all of the above comments about Elizabeth Mpologoma disputing that Sheila Nvanungi is not a princess. And my thoughts are: “for goodness sake how pathetic and sad, discourteous and unroyal” for this apparent ‘royal’ ie Elizabeth Mpologoma to do something so private in a public forum. She should be ashamed of herself and should have gone through the correct channels and to have got her facts right before she posted the initial letter in this chain. I bet she is spitting feathers now because it has all turned back on her now in the fact that it seems Sheila Nvanungi’s heritage has been confirmed ie as a true princess and that her own claim as a princess is being questioned. Like the saying goes ” what goes around comes around” and hasnt that turned out right? everything has come back against Ms Mpologoma.

    It also appears that Ms Mpologoma is living in the UK on state benefits paid for by hardworking UK citizens taxes and should therefore be more critical of her own behaviour and get a job, come off the benefits and get on with her life as a non-princess instead of pretending or claiming to be a princess in the UK, because surely if she was a true princess, she wouldnt need to be living off state benefits, and because being a non English princess in the UK wont do her any favours, because people wont bow down to her there because she is not their royal family and if that is what she is expecting it will NEVER happen, hell will freeze over first and people wont be impressed with her statement especially when they see she is living in a council flat living off their state benefits.

    If she doesnt like it in the UK, where she is obviously jealous of the attention that Princess Sheila Nvanungi is getting, then she should go back to Uganda face the music, whatever that may be, if youve done a crime, then do the time, then she can do something more proactive for her people like Princess Sheila Nvanungi seems to be doing and maybe then she will get the attention she so obviously craves.

    On a final note I have watched some of Undercover Princess and I found ‘Cinderella’ charming. The only thing I didnt approve of was her getting into bed with Paul. I know they claimed not to do anything, but it was very ‘unladylike’ especially for a princess. However, it is modern times I know, and I hope for Princess Sheila Nvanungi that her family and the government didnt disapprove of her behaviour and that they allow her to marry Paul if she wants to marry him, because he seems a nice guy who is truly besotted with her and she is obviously deeply smitten with him.

  55. Folks,
    I can see in BBC 3 now the said princess that caused the headlines in Uganda.Her face looked painted with massive make up
    Angol Daviv

  56. Angol
    I have watched it today for the first time because the lady in the house wanted to. One thing for sure: our Ugandan girls find it easy to say ‘i love you’ to a man. Nvanungi spent a night with a man in bed on TV, just like the other BB guy who had sex on TV. Where is the morality gone in Uganda?

    On a good note, Nvannungi has been promoting the Buganda kingdom and its culture on TV, and we are happy about it. Yes, she may not be a real princess but she is now one of th few faces representing Buganda internationally. Let me hope that she will get herself a real man when she goes back to Uganda. there is no point wasting herself with the Caribean guy other than just remaining friends. Those elders in Kampala should organise and get her a man. There are lots of good guys in Kampala from good families.

  57. Mr Semuwemba,

    What is really what in the Buganda royal house?

    The other day when we were responding to one Elizabeth Mpologoma on her dismissal of Sheila Nvanungi as a princess, the Royal Ark website had her as one Prince George William Walugembe Kassabbanda Juuko’s the offspring. He himself was at the time shown to be the first born of Prince George David Onesiphorus Juuko (1930-1971).

    Now, the website has been edited. George William Walugembe Kassabbanda Juuko is missing together with all his children, including Nvanungi. One other offspring of Prince George David Onesiphorus Juuko has also been deleted together with GWWK Juuko.

    What the person who edited the website forgot to do was to reconcile the detailed entries of the children and the grand total. Where as the grand total is now being stated as 8 (four sons, four daughters), the detailed entries show three sons.

    Now, Sheila Nvanungi is no longer a princess! What is what?

  58. I think Nvanungi did not differeciate acting in that film and finding a man, I am sure Nvanungi did not fail to find a man in uganda but what the film was all about is to find a man who will not be following who you are or what you have.

    With this issue of bagandas and their kingdoms princesses and balangira i have no comment but if Nvanungi is not a princess then she got the right man.
    The man that they met in a super market and fell in love plus renting A B&B in southend then spent the night together, she represented Buganda exactly the way the kingdom wanted as the katikiro sent her when he knew exactly who she was.

    But just to remind you all that Gaetano and Nvanungi both represented buganda not any other region of Uganda. Yes the whole world thinks that they represented uganda but in my view they represented Bagandas because we have different cultures which sometimes divides us.

  60. Hi Ms Mpologoma (Omumbejja Ow’ebbaluwa), I hope you have read all the comments and have a life for yourself.

    Stop being jealous of other people, stop being a hypocrite, stop putting your nose where it doesn’t belong, that’s why you are a hated figure Sweden, UK and Uganda.

    What are you doing in Ilford hidding? I suppose Nvanungi is not far from where you live since that is all Essex? Why don’t you go back to Uganda and live happily like other Princesses and princes we know instead of hidding in a tiny house and make a alot of noise like an empty tin? Princess Nvannungi is so pretty and beatiful and her face is now know all over the world unlike your
    own. stop being fake, back off, complete waste of time and energy. We know you very well and one day, we will expose you and the whole world will know who you are. If it was you on BBC3, people would have said the same.

    You are so filthy, arrogant, ignorant, liar, bastard and the list is endless. Back off and go back to Uganda and see if you will live as comfortable like Nvannungi.

  61. Nvanungi- Princess of Hearts or ‘Kiwanyi’?

    I am writing in response to a publication about Sheila Nvanungi a.k.a Cinderella who has appeared as an undercover Princess on BBC three programmes in the UK.

    Honestly speaking this is one of the most interesting programmes to watch for us Ugandans or indeed Africans living in the UK, where most programmes reflect the UK society. Cinderella with two other colleagues; Xenia of Saxony Germany and Aaliya Balasinor of India are undercover princesses who came to Britain to find love as they claim they failed to find true love in their native countries due to their status and fame.

    In response Elizabeth Mpologoma who claims to be the true Princess of Buganda and brother to the ruling Kabaka(King) of Buganda Kingdom, Ronald Muwenda Mutebi has written a letter to the BBC expressing her anger and dismay over Cinderella’s authenticity as a true Princess of Buganda.

    Abange temukika nsingo, muwagire Princess Cindy (Guys do not be angry with Princess Cinderella). Rather than throwing stones at her for her actions, give her the support she deserves. So what if she got it wrong. She at least has tried, was brave enough to appear on UK national TV but most important of all she will not be broke much longer.

    I understand Princess Cindy is a singer in Uganda. I hope she releases a new single that sales volumes to add to her riches. As a new found fun, I will not hesitate to buy it should it come out or even attend her performances.

    Not surprisingly Gal friend is being paid big time by the BBC to appear on such a popular programme. For those who us who have seen the programme so far, Cinderella is truly the most entertaining out of the three in such away that Britain and the rest of the world are now talking and writing about the programme. This has not only made her more famous, possibly beyond Buganda Kingdom itself and its true royals.

    Let us face it how many British, Germans, Indians, Caribbeans and the world over in this current generation knew about Buganda Kingdom’s existence until now? More still how many Ugandans know about Michael Owen, Theo Walcott Arsenal Footballer, Sean Connery, and Hugh Grant (of Essex) and would go on to make comments that they are her ideal men on national TV

    So what if she is not a true Princess? How many of us are true to our origins/tribes like Baganda, Banyarwanda or Sudanese as it were? I was once told that my paternal grand father migrated from Rwanda and my maternal grand mother who I only knew as ‘Daada Salima’ was not only Muslim but half Arab yet I claim to be a true MuSoga.

    Muleke ‘gal friend ‘yekolere emaali abogerera mwogere’ (Let the big mouths shut up, Gal friend is only trying to make money) ‘Yekorela nsimbi abogera mwogere’.

    Cindy may be kiwanyi (fake, false or replica) but she is good entertainment. She has good taste and with the likes of the most desirable men in showbiz, Cindy’s standards are set very high and she is set to do whatever it takes to obtain her high standard. I mean how many Ugandans adore Angelina Jolie an American film actor and partner to Brat Pitt, as one of the sexiest women in the whole world; know about Peter Andre an Australian-Greek Singer who recently divorced from Katie Price a.k.a Jordan: Britain’s ex-glamour girls and now British Millionaireness.

    Cindy has won the hearts and minds of many in spite of her somehow acidic tongue. She is indeed the Princess of Hearts, though she does not mince her words and could not help but make open comments about some suitors as being ‘too pink’ or ‘too fat’. Not even David Beckham was spared from Cindy sharp tongue as she commented she does not find him attractive. In a world where people are good at faking their feelings about black people even when they hate their guts, Cindy makes very little effort to disguise her facial expressions, feelings and disappointments about some suitors. Being Cindy she is not bothered about calling bowling a childish and boring game in another English suitor’s face!

    Cindy oozes with confidence and intellect beyond one’s imagination. She is knowledgeable and seeing how entertaining she is cracks me up. Nange ndi Princess Nak. Ani ampakanya? Mwaliyo? (I am Princess ‘Nak’ who dares question that? Who was there when I was being conceived? Only DNA will confirm my Princess in the making. May be the Kabaka or other royals fired elsewhere and never told all the ‘Watoto’ (children) he had.

    My advices stay calm. If Cindy is ‘Kiwanyi’ she has just borrowed the title for a few weeks and will return it soon. Due to Cindy’s actions, Uganda is at par with Germany and India if not ahead in the dating game. She put Africa and indeed Uganda on the map and most important she has got us talking. Cindy pulled big time whilst in an English night club. She was a magnet to English men as noted by her colleagues; with her sexy curvaceous and tight ‘butt,’ similar to Beyonce and Jennifer Lopez plus her cleaverage that left no imagination Cindy pulled the blokes by their balls; yet none of them met her taste.

    Better still Princess Cindy has generated so much interest in British TV and there is now a quiz set on BBC about her. She is also mostly being used in advertising the programmes for the following episodes than the other two.

    What happens next? Is Cindy going to be interrogated by ISO/ESO or Crime Watch UK or will she like Makosi, a Zimbabwean nurse who appeared on Big Brother House UK and like Geatano had sex on live TV resulting in her work visa being revoked by British authorities; and she ending up seeking asylum in the UK for fear of reprisal if she had been sent back to Zimbabwe. Makosi’s action of having sex in a swimming pool with a British house mate while on camera made her an over night celebrity as she covered UK magazines for a while.

    While Cindy may be seen as disgrace by some Buganda, we should also remember to be grateful and embrace the many tourists that will flock into (B) Uganda as result of the publicity she has created for the Kingdom. To end the fairy tale to its true and happy ending nature, Cindy was able to find her Prince, known as Paul, a famous, handsome basket ball player and hank from Tobago in the Caribbean

    Muleke Cindy asibe ekiwanyi kye, anti ayiya. Ndaba Kampala yatusobera dda buli omu asiba kiwanyi (Leave Cindy alone she is trying to survive, after all this is what most people in Kampala do)

    Thanks to Cindy. ‘Obuganda Buladde’ (The Land of Buganda is at peace) and more popular than ever

    Let the fun continue. Like many others, I can not wait to see the next programme which is being aired twice a week on BBC three at 9.00pm for four or so many weeks.

  62. Hi all

    it would have been really good if the “Princess” was an authentic princess, however if she is not but represented much of the culture of Buganda and the “Royal” I can see no issue there.

    I can see at least some members of the “Royal Family” getting upset because of “Desired image and Name”. For this reason I can understand why it may touch nerves, however, I must say as a British national and one of proud African-Caribbean ancestry I wasn’t at all embarrassed and besides “Princess Cinderella” was adored by my colleagues and my wife said the same of her work mates. As a matter of fact, it was my wife who invited me to watch the program with her after overhearing her colleagues talking so excitedly about the “princess of Buganda”.

    In spite the fact that I am well educated, currently pursuing a doctorate in Christian apologetics (I’m not a Christian) and embarking on studies for my Masters in Bio-Science and I’m well read and traveled much but I still didn’t know that there exist a “Buganda Kingdom”. Even my wife who is from Kenya and knew of it from taking history in school, even she was unaware that the Kingdom still exists. So, if “princess Cinderella” did nothing else she brought Buganda, its Kingdom and its royal to the awareness of the world.

    Therefore, I see no need for all that insults that were hurled at the young lady. I think instead it makes the attacker rather common in her way, aggressive and spiteful. After all, she is one of your own. Is that what she calls being educated and civilized? She even went on to indicate that she and the rest of the “royal” are civilized because they were educated in Europe and America and associate with these nations. She made no mention of any other African nation’s Kingdom except where she mentioned “ZULU” dress with disdain.

    I am so sorry for Princess Elizabeth Mpologoma, she is a sad self denying creature. I hope She soon awake from her slumber.

    Princess Cinderella we love you!!

    Ben, Essex.

  63. Surely there are different ranks of royalty everywhere in the world?

    I have watched all episodes of “Undercover Princesses” and, being German, I can say that Princess Xenia (a.k.a. Gabby) is a princess, but not a very highly-ranked one. I’d venture to guess that about 90% of the German population wouldn’t recognize her. She still IS a princess though. If it’s the same for “Cinderella” then that’s good enough for me! Did she end up marrying Paul then?

  64. i love Cinderella too, whether shes a princess or not, shes still a great woman. honest, friendly,respectful all round great.you people are just jealous because shes making a lot of money. and Elizabeth whatever is just embarrassing herself. its not a shame that she didn’t know what coleslaw is, it doesn’t mean she not educated. how does not knowing what coleslaw is and education mix anyway? im a university students but there are foods here in UK that i don’t even know! she DID NOT embarrass anyone!!!

  65. I think the problem here is what Elizabeth Mpologoma wrote. She was so proud to say that Members of the Buganda Royal Family are being sent abroad to be educated, this is nothing to be proud of. Why can’t she go back to her country use her influence (if she is indeed royal) to do something about the education system. Honestly how is knowing what jacket potato, beef burger and coleslaw going to help the country? Now that the members of the royal family have been educated let them go back and put it to some use!

  66. It is a great shame that one could be this bitter to ‘Cinderella’ and yet she has no idea of what her own true origin is….Mpologoma!
    ?????????? what have you done for your Kingdom and who knows you anyway. I suggest you wake up woman and catch up with Cindy that is if you can.

    I love the humbleness in you Princess Nvanungi, You represented both Buganda and the Zulus which I am a part of.Bless
    Judy, London

  67. If u loved watching ‘Undercover Princesess’ like me, there are more shows being aired the whole of this week. These include unseen footage. they have called it the best of the ‘Undercover Princes and Princesses.

    I hope more of our Cindy and her Prince Charming Paul is aired.

    For more gossip visit BBC3 blog by googling nvanungi and look out for the gossip… link

  68. So did Cinders & Paul get married in the end?
    This Is all I’m interested in as in my opinion; this programme forfilled it’s purpose to entertain. To be honest I think you’re all abit jealous, get a life yeah?

  69. QUESTIONS

    why did the buganda prime minister appear in the last episode ? i think you all knew about the programme and had a share of cake from BBC……

    Mengo is where the kingdom has their main offices, thus you can tell me that people considered didnt know her where abouts…. the whole kingdom from king, princes and princesses are primitive…sorry

  70. I’m German by myself and I can tell you that Xenia is not a real princess, too.
    She is not really that famous in Germany (Z-List Celebrity) and she is only famous for her Name which is “Prinzessin von Sachsen Herzogin zu Sachen” and it’s just a Name not a Title we don’t have royality anymore.
    In Germany ( you used to be only the “real deal” if you have this Name by your father and not by your mother like Xenia. But the TV call everyone a “real” prince/princess even if they are not, even people who are adoped are called “Real” which is not true at all. But the most people have no clue about (royal-) history so you can deceiv them really fast and good, and this a an entertainment industry it’s not about “what is the truth?”, it’s about “what sells better?”.

    Xenia is the illegitimate daughter of Iris Princess of Saxony (German family law accords her her mother’s last name which is “Prinzessin von Sachsen Herzogin von Sachsen”) and an unknown father. Iris herself is the legitimate but morganatic daughter of Prince Georg Timo von Sachsen and Margit Lukas, who was the daughter of a butcher.

  71. I would like to know whether Cindy is living happily with Paul now? Did Cindy’s family accept Paul? I really wanna know the things that happened after the BBC programme!

  72. Princess Elizabeth Mpologoma, thanx alot for the clarification we need people like you to stand out for the kingdom Buganda and put some facts on board. I too thought the lady Nvanungi was a real princess.. BBC what really happened to the best of ma knowledge i know this is a big corporation very systematic, how could you host this lady as a Buganda princess? This did not come out so well with Baganda in Buganda Kingdom of Uganda. Please we wish next time you point out to OUR BBC audience how your guests earn their title.

    Thank you

    Julianne

  73. I’d just like to add as a South African that, the outfit worn by Cinderella was not a Zulu outfit. I enjoyed the programme. Princess or no princess. Am also keen to find out if the couple is still together.

  74. What is special in being a princess. For your community to be aired in UK, instead for u guys to roll out the drum. I am a Nigerian i have never heard of Buganda, thanks to Princess Sheila. I trust my country Nigeria for Show, put ordinary our begger to contest with a queen, we shall fight for our own.
    Elizabeth its a shame. U want to pull Princess Sheila down but sorry madam you have failed.
    I am even planning for Nollywood to invite princess S soon. HAPPY UNION TO SHEILA AND PAUL

  75. I WATCHED THE SHOW YESTERDAY, I SAE PRINCEE SHEILA SITTING A ROYAL SEAT, PLS MADAM PRINCESS ELIZABETH IS THAT SEAT FAKE. I SAW SOME SCHOOL PUPILS LINING TO GREET HER AND PAUL, ARE THOSE CHILDREN FAKE? I SAW HER PA, HER MOTHER, HER BROTHER ETC, WERE THEY FAKE.

    I AM SORRY DOE U MADAM PRINCESS, THE BIBLE SAYS IN PSALM 109 THAT YOU NEVER LIKE GOOD THING, GOOD THINGS SHALL BE FAR FROM YOU. I SUGGEST U CALL PRINCESS OF OUR HEART, THE BEAUTY OF AFRICA, THE PRIDE OF EVERY WOMEN, PRINESS SHEILA, CALL HER AND APOLOGISE. HUMBLE YOURSELF AND LET GOD LIFT U UP OR ELSE I PITTY U.

  76. Its not being educated abroad, knowing what a jacket potato is..bla..bla..bla..all boring…that matters ..what matters is the royalty in you…I know Cindy from my country and she portrays a good picture in Uganda..a princess..true or not..what the hell!!!!….i have always known her as a princess and listened to many of her songs..i just watched the show,i must say..it was great..i was so proud of Uganda and i rooted for her all the way…..would it be bad if someone does not speak English because its her second language..no..please let us be civilised and being a muganda and ugandan myself,i must say that this is a good publicity for the nation..Cindy we love you ,love you,did i say love you. You three girls had an amazing bond and you are the reason why i watched the show..all the way from Australia…atleast the world now knows that Buganda kingdom and Uganda exist…because you always have to add next to Kenya….

    Love you Cindy…Princess Sheilla Nvannungi

  77. But whats all this my fellow ugandans,i don’t think Elizabeth mpologoma is fair in her criticisms ,coz am 21 now but i hv neva heard of her among our royal family and thats why i can’t give her a title of a” princess”.We all respect our royal family members and we know they hv no time to start posting such doubts online.I n the first place Elizabeth you r contradicting yo’self coz at one moment u said Princess nvannungi is a daughter to juuko kasabanda,and in a different post after this you were on juuko kasabanda’s side saying he didn’t know about nvannungi.the point is if u knew she wasn’t a princess you could hv reported to BBC instead of wasting time in these postings coz u gained nothing .me am in uganda and we know she is a royal and nothing can change that coz if she wasn’t there r royals in uganda who r in a good position to stop her from doing this BBC show.I think the problem here is JEALOUSY and can u imagine how idle this made u look,coz in the first place Nvannungi had the right to stand up and answer yo criticisms but her confidence in her parentage and knowing she is a true royal she just had no time to mind all this.As for me am behind Princess Nvannungi 100%.elizabeth enough is enough with this.For those supporting Princess Nvannungi thank you coz she is da one you know in person unlike elizabeth who we hv never seen in uganda.

  78. She lied about her age her alleged grandfather is really her father and she is a princess

  79. I know this is a little too late too post but I might as well do it now. Being a princess in Buganda or any of the other four kingdoms including Ankole chiefdom means that you are a descendant of the one of the Kings. Its is through Lineage and no matter how far you are from the ruling throne you are still considered a princess. The Balangira and Babembejja have special names because of their orgin in Abyssinia and if anyone is keen enough to know the culture, you can tell a princess from a commoner just by them telling you their maiden or last night ( this excludes imposers from Burundi and Rwanda). The only mistake that I think that Omubejja Elizabeth Mpologoma did was to implicitly exclude Ombejja Nvanugi from being a princess. She may not be apart of the ruling royal family, but she still a princess. The only problem that I have with the image presented in the show was that they protrayed Om. Nvanungi was part of the ruling royal family yet she is not. True she is a princess, I myself I am a princess but everytime I mention that I am, I have to clarify that I am Princess although I am not a part of the ruling royal family. For those who addressed Omubemjja Mpologoma is such abusive language shame on you, how dare you talk to a princess like that? In her case too, it doesn’t matter if she is a part of the ruling royal family or not, she is still a princess.

In her case too, it doesn’t matter if she is a part of the ruling royal family or not, she is still a princess.

  81. Princess Elizabeth Mpologoma is a princess and the daughter of Sir Edward Muteesa .This I know and can vouch for because I was there in Ndaiga when her mother met the Kabaka. But of course very few people are aware of this but those who were on that last trip of the Kabaka to ndaiga will be aware of this!! But despite this it does not give her the right to derrogate other people . The royal family is such an extended family affair that it would be quite arrogant to emphatically say that so and so is royal or not royal unless you are the mother of that person and therefore, you should definately know the father of your chil!!.To me, Nvannungi acted superbably although I also had an issue with the Gaetano scene!!.

  82. I have gone through all comments but I would like to clarify is this; there hvae been a number of Kings succeeding the Buganda throne and as one of the decendants of the 13th King of Buganda (Kabaka Kateregga) I proudly introduce myself as a Princess. Some people think that to be a princess you have to be one of the immediate relative of the King, remember (Abalangira na Bambejja) is a Clan just like Emamba or Nyonyi therefore all children and grandchildren from all Kings of Buganda are Prince and Princess. Therefore, it would be better for Princess Nvanungi to identify exactly which King line she belongs to and I am sure her name is registered at Mengo just like any other Balangira and Bambejja.
    Akuume

  83. Genuinely no matter if someone doesn’t understand after that its up to other visitors that they will assist, so here it occurs.

  84. Are you a Buganda Prince or Princess? Would you like to trace your lineage and educate your children about the Kingdom and why they should not shy away to say they are Prince and Princess from the Buganda Kingdom.

    The following are the known Kings of Buganda, starting from around 1300 AD.[1]

    Kato Kintu, early fourteenth century
    Chwa I, mid fourteenth century
    Kimera, c.1374-c.1404
    Ttembo, c.1404-c.1434
    Kiggala, c.1434-c.1464 and c.1484-c.1494
    Kiyimba, c.1464-c.1484
    Kayima, c.1494-c.1524
    Nakibinge, c.1524-c.1554 (Followed by a period of Interregnum, c.1554-c.1555)
    Mulondo, c.1555-1564
    Jemba, c.1564-c.1584
    Suuna I, c.1584-c.1614
    Sekamaanya, c.1614-c.1634
    Kimbugwe, c.1634-c.1644
    Kateregga, c.1644-c.1674
    Mutebi I, c.1674-c.1680
    Juuko, c.1680-c.1690
    Kayemba, c.1690-c.1704
    Tebandeke, c.1704-c.1724
    Ndawula, c.1724-c.1734
    Kagulu, c.1734-c.1736
    Kikulwe, c.1736-c.1738
    Mawanda. c.1738-c.1740
    Mwanga I, c.1740-c.1741
    Namuggala, c.1741-c.1750
    Kyabaggu, c.1750-c.1780
    Jjunju, c.1780-c.1797
    Semakookiro, c.1797-c.1814

    Muteesa I, 1856 – 1884
    Mwanga II, 1884 – 1888 and 1889 – 1897
    Kiweewa, 1888 – 1888
    Kalema, 1888 – 1889
    Daudi Chwa II, 1897 – 1939
    Muteesa II, 1939 – 1969 (Followed by a period of Interregnum 1969 – 1993)
    Ronald Muwenda Mutebi II, 1993 – present.

    Probably, this will help other people to understand that they are so many Bambejja na Balangila decending from all those Kings. Once again I emphasise that Abalangila na Bambejja is a CLAN just like any other Buganda clans, the only difference it is a royal clan.

    Akuume

  85. what about us balangira and bambejja from the mpologoma clan whose descendants are ssebuganda one of the sons of ssekabaka kintu who other clans refer to us as mediocre royals.?? we will remain royal as for as long as the world exists. kasagga anthony

  86. Kato let alone setting off, when the man she met (Paul) came to Uganda, he was ushered into the lubiri and had dinner with the royals including the katikiro. Does Mpologoma insinuate that all the royals agreed to cover up for Cindrella?

  87. There are several resources on the web that offers courses that are equipped with the needed info about written prescriptions and documentation for the use of
    medical medicinal marijuana merchant account, medical medicinal marijuana merchant
    account therapy identification cards, patient evaluation, and
    of program a complete information about the federal laws.

    Distribution of the drug should only be given to patients with legal documents supporting
    that they’re indeed undergoing a treatment utilizing the medical medicinal marijuana dispensary merchant account.
    Athletes are known to be healthy people who do right by their body
    and as a consequence they are able to endure the hardship of long and tiring training
    in preparation for their game.

  88. I truly believe we should do some research before all this nonsense is posted.

  89. The rise of these machines has triggered such excitement among
    viewers that almost everyone iss switching to an Some companbies manufacturing these units provide specially
    prepared software for an even better viewing experience. In
    these seasons the viewers are given a treat of those episodes
    that are reallky breathtaking. Furthermore, you should confirm that thee general culture andd atmosphere at the interior design school you choose fits youu well.

  90. Hello I am so grateful I found your blog, I really found you by accident,
    while I was researching on Google for something else, Anyways I am here now and would just like to say thanks a lot for a incredible post and a all round interesting
    blog (I also love the theme/design), I don’t have time to read it all
