Who are the cultural leaders of Bugerere and Buluuri

Standard

The cultural leader of Bugerere is Omutaka Namuyonjo. A son of Omukama Wunyi l from Kibulala in Singo. Pricess Nang’oma , the cultural leader of Buluuli, is a daughter of Omukama Wunyi l of Kibulala in Singo. Those are the cultural leaders worth their names. But this alliws of yours Mr. Mirima are bakopi ( commoners) not royals (Babiito or Balangira). If Kimeze and Mwogezi Butamanya, want leadership, let them stand for elective political offices, or let them become clerics, or let them become very rich, or let they become grow too old, or let they be elected Katikkiros of Nangg’oma and Namuyonjo.

The offices of Princess Nang’oma or Nyangoma and Namuyonjo or Nyamuyonjo, are hereditary, and the Omukama does not have powers to sack incumbents or abolish them.

Secondly, the office of Nang’oma is no longer under Omukama of Bunyoro but under the Kabaka of Buganda after Buluuli (Southern Buluulu) fell from Bunyoro to Buganda in the second half of the 19th century. However Omukama may install a Nyangoma of North Buluuli now in Masindi District. As for Namuyonjo, the office is under Kabaka of Buganda after North Bugerere fell to Buganda and even in recent years, the late Sir Edward Muteesa ll have one sq.maile Mailo Estate to the family at Galiraaya. Both discendents of Namuyonjo and Nang’oma gather annually at Kibulala in Singo, for the annual gathering of all decedents of Winyi. Many come from Buddu, other parts of Singo, Busujju, Butambala, Bugerere, even Bulemeezi. They are led by a ssaababiito b’e Kibulala, who is answerable to Ssaabalangira of Buganda and Kabaka of Buganda. They are different from Babiito of Kooki who also have their own Ssaababiito. There are also Ababiito b’e Sanje, one branch in Kiziba, Tanzania, where Princess Maria Lubega Mutagamba belongs. There are also Abamooli of Bwera now Mawogola who are affiliated to Ngabo clan. The Bunyoro Babiito (even Kooki Babiito) have Ngabi as their totems.

So while Bunyoro-Kitara  is the cradle of centralized states in the Great lakes Region , other powerful kingdoms like Buganda emerged and cut that umbilical code. However we should all be proud of the Great Lakes region’s linkages. But Omukama should not interfere in buganda affairs so is vice versa.
