The Family of Sir Edward Mutesa II has petitioned the Constitutional Court challenging the legality of Kabaka Ronald Mutebi as King of Buganda.

Ms Sarah Namasole Natolo who claims to be the mother of late Kabaka Mutesa II and Prince David Simbwa, the son of Kabaka Daudi Chwa claim when the government passed the 1967 Constitution, it tampered with the kingdom constitution that provided for the election of the Kabaka.

The petitioners claim Article 2 of the Buganda Kingdom Constitution states that “the Kabaka who is ruler of the Buganda Kingdom shall be elected by the Majority Votes of the Lukiiko”.

They argue that although any prince including the Kabaka is entitled to nominate or choose his own personal successor upon death, the Kabaka remains to be elected by majority votes of the Lukiiko.

According to the petitioners the past Kabaka’s of Buganda nominated their personal successors but the Lukiiko went ahead to elect other people.
