KABAKA MUTESA II MARRIED TWO BANYANKORE AND TWO BATOORO

Standard
1/3 Just to help you further to understand the Balaalo factor in the buganda Royal House, I have been intending to mention to you that, of the 9 wives of Kabaka Mutesa II, two were Banyankore princesses and two were Batoro, one of them a princess.

The Banyankore are:

1.  Princess Kaakako Rwanchwende the mother of one of your princes, Prince Herbert Kateregga (born:1964).

2.  Princess Winifred Keihangwe, the mother of Kabaka Mutesa II’s youngest son, Prince David Kintu Wassajja.  You may know that Prince Wassajja was born in 1966 shortly after his mother was released from Luzira where she had been dumped in the wake of the 1966 crisis.
The Batoro are:

1.  Nesta M. Rugumayo the mother of Kabaka Mutesa II’s eldest son (Kiwewa), Prince Robert Masamba Kimera, born in 1950.

2.  Princess Beatrice Kabasweka the mother of Princess Dina Kigga Mukarukidi

2/3   In the picture below, you see L-R Princes Daudi Golooba, David Wassajja and Herbert Kateregga.  The rest are Prince Golooba’s children.

ROYALTY: In colour (L-R) are Princes Daudi Golooba, David Wasajja and Herbert Kateregga. The rest are Golooba’s children

ROYALTY: In colour (L-R) are Princes Daudi Golooba, David Wasajja and Herbert Kateregga. The rest are Golooba’s children

3/3   That is additional information for you to have at the back of your mind as you advance your anti-Banyankore/Westerners campaign here on the forum.  The point is, as you hurl your daily insults at Balaalo, there is a Buganda prince or princess somewhere sneering at your wonderful wisdom Mutaka Nsubuga, the Muganda patriot.

  1. Fellow Ugandans,

    This question of royalty marrying royalty is not a news issue in Uganda, I believe it occured as an offer of friendship between kingdoms.
    A more interesting case should be observed of the Bahima and the Banyarwanda and we need to gain a deeper understanding of the plight of the Bairu under the Bahima rule in Ankore, it is vitally important to make the distinction between the immigrants from Rwanda and the Bahima (Balalo as were known to the Baganda of the time) ruling clan of Ankore. The two people were distinct in dress culture, mannerisms and dance. The questions that still linger and now subject of interest are; did the Bahima prefer marrying Banyarwanda women and how much was this influx of refugees from Rwanda before the war, When do we start seeing this serious intermingling of tribes across borders? Is it in the three centuries of 1700,1800 and 1900 or can we even talk of an Ankore kingdom in the 1700? and if so when did they realize both the Bairu and Bahima that the Mpungi from Rwanda might overrun them? Being cognisant of course, that as long as the Tutsi were in power they had no special need to migrate to Uganda except for grazing!
    So I believe the Tutsi years of rule play an important role in controling the flight of the tutsi people!

    The Tutsi rule in Rwanda ended in the early sixties and it brought an overwhelming wave of refugees who were settled in various places in south western Uganda. I’m interested in knowing as subject of research the question ,as to when did the refugee issue become overwhelming to the local population of Ankore!?
