Mukaabya Walugembe Muteesa is the architect of Uganda

Standard

The role of Muteesa is not under estimated. Just read STanley’s Trhough the Dark Continent. At first Muteesa thought that Buganda was the World’s super power. After hearing aboput other powers, at least it was the one in Africa. Thus he befriended Arab and Europeans. His diplomatic resistance of colonialism including offering to marry Queen Victoria, helped Buganda and Uganda to be administred as a protectorate other than a crown colony like Kenya was. His letter brought missionaries who were negotiators between African chiefs and colonial masters. The westernisation that was brought by the missionaries was partly due to Muteesa’s letter and the one of Stanley that was written in Daily Palagraph.

According to Baganda, Muteesa was the Kabaka that was between the ancient kingdom and the new generation. He was admired , imitated and resisted but not ignored by the rest of Uganda and beyond.

Mukaabya Walugembe Muteesa was the actual archtect of Uganda. No wonder, Prof.Matiya Mulumba Ssemakula Kiwanuka, wrote a book entittled “Muteesa of Uganda”
