Baganda hand over Kampala, Buganda Kingdom Ends

Baganda must have a say in Kampala policy-making decisions.

Now consider this. Mukono town council has an industrial area, the sector after Mbalala on Mukono –Jinja road where the Abcus factory is located. Then nrm (idi amin) wakes up one day, take over Buganda land in Namanve, an exclusive wetland (examine the plant diversity) to start a similar industrial area to be given to investors (foreigners) by Dr. Kigozi!

What is the pension and social security funding amounts to for the Baganda; Chapatti makers, Boda Boda cyclist, Food Vendors, and Baganda petty traders will get on their pension day?

planning process

Who were the city planners of Garden city and Nakumat placed on a busy city road

Who were the city planners and umeme engineers that planned relocation of city electrical installations, i.e. umeme transformers on Ben Kiwanuka street, Mini Price corridor (Gaza Buiilding), high voltage power leaves – can they produce the design on paper?

Who were the city planners who planned for the relocation of city schools

Who were the city planners who planned change of the road in Bugolobi

Who were the city planners who planned the degazzeting of Lugogo play grounds and green belts

nrm self-deception and hypocrisy, becomes even more apparent in these matters. Let us look at all City Council workers, ministers and other public workers, who were actually approved by the state;

Can the state through the igg, public Accounts, ura, cid; investigate property ownership and who own what and how in Kampala!

How did government workers as opposed to common moneyed Baganda have access to these properties and land

Where the funds for buying those properties relative to their wages or borrowed from banks

Where government valuers valued those properties

That is the very issue and the essence of Kampala problems (who are Kampala planners and authors!!) – basically nrm and specifically its compatriot adversaries, the so-called opposition parties predominantly designed Kampala so-called master plan and even roads. The facts are there for everybody to see in reports and so on.

And 90% of uganda police force is in kampala, which is however expanding according to the planners and politicians, now extending to Wakiso, God knows where else!!! What are the police policing?!

Buganda must cede from Uganda. Denmark has left Iceland cede and this must be taught to each and every Muganda wherever they are; children, old, lame, women and men!

Coffee, Cotton;

The political elite, media and moneyed class, should stop being ambiguous, vague, double faced, and stupidly misleading poor Baganda into temptation and confusion. When nrm (including DP) destroyed coffee and cotton factories in Luwero, they said it was sabotaging the Obote regime and not Buganda Kingdom! Ask how many factories have been built or replaced there today?

None! These people are imperialist and worse than colonialist and in the likes of Boers with a destructive agenda for Buganda. Have you ever thought of how many (numbers) Baganda survived on that above-mentioned trade!

Milk and Cattle

Who said Baganda were not cattle breeders? That is nrm indoctrination that they even started offering (teaching!) Baganda women Friesian cattle, to breed albeit without the veterinary and technical support i.e. drugs! What arrogance! However, all modern cattle farms in Luwero, Kiboga, Mubende, Ngoma, Nakasongola 90% owned by Baganda (commercial cattle farmers) and if not the church and seminaries, were systematically destroyed by nrm and dp!!

Luwero, Ngoma, Nakasongola corridors are among the largest milk and fruit producers, in the region. nrm thugs ate the cattle but all what we hear is that – all dairy production factories, milk plants and policies are being located and implemented in Ankole! Not a single milk plant, has ever been built in Buganda Kingdom, milk producing region by nrm and why?

How many Baganda survive at the whims of the state? Accept for Prof. Nsibambi, Prof. Bukenya, Speaker Ssekandi, Presidential advisers Nagenda, Ssebunya and their likes?!

99% of Baganda provide for their families and children with sweat and toil;

School fees

Medicare

Feeding

Accommodation

Baganda effortlessly used to provide for themselves through farming (coffee, cotton, cattle farming, maize, banana, cassava, oil nuts, fishing and seeds) (now the coffee industry is an exclusive business run by nrm individuals = Oyite Ojok!)

Baganda are on the verge of total destitution.

Kampala E’kibuga

Once upon a time, Muteesa I found Kampala City as E’kibuga kya Buganda –the King was very clear and firm in his actions the reasons were the following;

1. Entry in Kampala was limited to certain corridors.

2. Strategic Economic Interest of Buganda Kingdom, read Baganda.

3. Security Wise Kampala is well defended topographically

4. Geographically Kampala has a tri-lateral import, in that it is near the largest Lake Catchment region, an Agricultural region and a long time Traditional transport corridor in Buganda Kingdom

5. Topographically Kampala could settle much more Baganda than any other region in Buganda without the Kingdom being bothered much with their welfare.

6. With the above there was low social conflict.

Kabaka Muteesa I’s genius and foresight, is reflected in his spatial planning method of E’kibuga. He made sure, he de-concentrated as much people and institutions as possible, at the same time, maintaining freer land within the same region, the E’kibuga.

Compare Kololo and Naggalabi as state ceremonial grounds!

Why didn’t Kampala become a slum area between 1820 – 1890 (70 years) and has become a slum only between 1986 – 2009 (23 years)??!

Proof:

1. Basoga as the nearest cousins to Baganda were settled in Kampala but none of a clan difference could be recognised – that is Kabaka Muteesa I’s genius and foresight. Their clan head stayed on one hill, where the present Bahai church is located

2. Arab traders and first British people in Buganda were settled by Kabaka Muteesa I’s himself and integrated within.

3. All visitors to Buganda who wanted to stay, were settled according to Kabaka spatial plan some in Bagerere, Luwero (Badama, Nubians, Jaluos from Kenya and Bahima/Balaro).

Compare the above with the so-called investment Indians and Chinese in Kampala!

NOTE: Kabaka Muteesa I’s genius and foresight refused the Arab traders zonal establishment, and concentric zones thus effectively stamping out, what would have turned out to be natural segregation that resulted in Nakasero, Naguru (African settlements), Katwe etc, in early 20th century. Baganda remained equals to all foreigners in the region. He effectively stopped early traveller’s self-aggrandisement, by himself allocating appropriate sites for their settlement normally among the settled Baganda.

Ssabaataka Muteesa I, allowed given routes as entry points into the E’kibuga! Something, which effectively stopped natural pollution of his fore fathers land. The same system is used in modern town planning! That is exactly what nrm and their adversaries’, the bus and taxi owners’, have refused to accept, hence congesting E’Kibuga and polluting E’Kibuga with diesel fumes.

If any silly policy derived not from Buganda strategic interest – 900 km is quite a massive landmass that will leave more than 3 million Baganda landless, homeless, jobless and in destitution.

Ssabajja Muteesa I made sure that free land which was not institutionally utilised such as;

Burial places

Kingdom ceremonial grounds

Religious grounds

Hunting grounds,

Roads

Fishing grounds

Palaces

Was used to employ and settle the masses of Baganda. Homelessness, destitution and joblessness are new phenomenon in Buganda. He even change the governance structure that governors the Bakungu and Abami never allocated land!

Ask therefore, who will own the 900 sq km of land on which Baganda have dwelled for centuries that falls under Kampala urban planning area? What will poor Baganda do on poor marginal land if they are resettled and a city that has a limited number of jobs?

How will Buganda employ her landless masses?

Buganda must cede from Uganda. Denmark has left Iceland cede and this must be taught to each and every Muganda wherever they are; children, old, lame, women and men!

Solution

Carefully, read the 1955/62 Urban and Country Planning and 1998 Land Acts!

The Kingdom of Buganda as the originator of Kampala E’kibuga must have the mandate to compel Baganda landowners to conform to urban planning policy and regulations, as per the above acts. The Ssabaataka is the sole custodian of Buganda land, he holds in trust for every single or people that profess to be Baganda.

Baganda and the Kingdom of Buganda own Land in Kampala and Buganda. Exactly as Acoli, Basoga, Lugubara and Banyankole own land in Acoli, Busoga, WestNile and Ankole respectively.

It is foolish to think you put a stealing soldier or politician, who has been stealing since 1986 and will change Kampala. In the nearest future all data on land grabbing in Kampala will be listed on the Internet.

  1. It is okay for Buganda to cede from uganda. there are very good reasons for it and all Baganda must know them as you explained.
    However using the same right, please allow the following to cede from buganda through peaceful means. BAMOOLI, BALUULI, BANYALA, BANABUDU, BASESSE, BAVUMA, BAKOOKI & BALOPI. each of these have a right to self determination just like Buganda and are suffering under the current buganda setup just as buganda is suffering under the uganda set up.
    further, lets divide according to clans, then by grandfathers, then by fathers and divide till every one forms their own state/kingdom.
