Buganda’s un-changeable borders

Standard

1/4. When opening the 16th session of Great Lukiiko under his reign on 24th August 2009, The Kabaka said, “…the boundaries of Buganda Kingdom were well demarcated and ‘cannot just be changed’ because they are well spelt out in the Constitution”.

2/4. The Kabaka was as usual being just magnanimous. He could have as well continued, “….the borders of Buganda are ‘God made {natural}’. Buganda extends from lake to lake and from river to river. Rivers and lakes cannot be shifted by man”.

3/4. Well, H.H. did not want to sound arrogant but every one knows that, whatever the wishes and designs one may harbour , the lakes Nalubaale [Victoria, southern border] and Kyoga [northern border] plus the rivers: Nile, the Kafu, the Kagera, etc cannot be shifted by man.

4/4. Concluding: It is therefore impossible to wish away, the alone remove Buganda from existence, however powerful [politico-militarily] one may (temporarily) be. First, because it can’t be removed from the peoples’ mind but important as well, because “God created” Buganda [through the people’s effort] within ‘secure, natural’ borders. Only awareness of his self evident fact, not envy, will stabilise Uganda as a politico-economic space.

  1. Buganda changed the boarders of many of her neighbours at will and with malice and aided by a powerful [politico-militarily] power which was known also to be temporary.
    It is therefore impossible to wish away, let alone remove peoples like Baluuli, Bakooki, Banyala, basoga, etc from existence, however powerful mengo may have (temporarily) been. First, because it can’t be removed from those peoples’ minds but important as well, because “God created” Bugandathem [through the people’s effort] within their own ‘secure, natural’ borders. Only awareness of his self evident fact, not envy, will stabilise buganda as a politico-economic space.
