1/7 What do you mean by “Nabakooba is a partisan Muhima on a pro ‘Nyakazaana’ anti people mission” ? You mean support for Nyakazaana is pro-Hima and probably anti-Ganda?
2/7 Bahima particularly Maama Nyakazaana, have given Buganda Kabakas and Chiefs. The prominent Nyakazaana is of the Bahinda clan of the Royal family of Nkore (“Ankole”) and the earlier you got to know her, the better for you in your effort to be in good stead with Buganda royalty. Thus far, things may not be good for you.
3/7 This is what I mean: Nyakazaana was the wife of Zachary Kiwanuka Sensalire, and together, they were the parents of Ham Mukasa Rwamujonjoza (1871-1956), one of the greatest sons of Buganda. Ham Mukasa as you know was the Sekibobo of Buganda (i.e., the Chief of Kyaggwe), the longest serving chief in the history of Buganda. Zakariya Kiwanuka Sensalire was himself a descendant of a long line of Sensalires, i.e. heads of the balalo clan of Njovu who are known to have gained prominence right from the days of Kabaka Kintu as the official balaalo. Up to now, it remains the duty of the Njoveu clan to educate every new Kabaka on the art of bulaalo (herding). Like other balaalo, Sensalire married from among his fellow Bahima, hence the Nyakazaana that you are now vilifying.
4/7 Nyakazaana, a Muhima, was the mother of Ham Mukasa as we have seen. Ham Mukasa, with his first wife Anna Mawemuko, then went ahead to father Victoria Sarah Nalwanga (b. 1910). Nalwanga was the mother of the two Kisosonkoles, Sarah and Damali, the wives of Kabaka Edward Mutesa II.
5/7 Sarah Kisosonkole, (the great grand daughter of Nyakazana), was Kabaka Mutebi’s mother. The Kiganda version of the Hima name, Nakazana has stuck around up to now. Kabaka Mutebi’s first Namasole was known as Edith Nakazana. She passed away recently in London, I think on 02 Sep 2008, and you may have even attended her funeral service!
6/7 So, by vilifying Nyakazaana are you may be launching a calculated assault of Kabaka Mutebi’s parentage or you really do not know what you are talking about. From my instinct, I suspect the latter.
7/7 Baganda had better educate you on the roots of Buganda royalty or start being weary of you as a “green grass in the snake”. Your anti-Nyakazaana vitriol is as venomous as it is inimical to Buganda.
