Ssabasajja Kabaka Ronald Muwenda Mutebi was born on 13 April 1955

Dear Forumists

It is important that the following facts are brought to your attention:

1. Ssabasajja Kabaka Ronald Muwenda Mutebi was born on 13 April 1955. He was conceived in the south of France where his father (Ssekabaka Edward Mutesa II) was on vacation with Ms Sarah Kisosonkole (Mutebi’s mother) in the summer of 1954. This was during Mutesa’s first exile and photographs of this holiday are available.
2. During the whole of 1954, Daudi Ochieng was employed at Namulonge in Uganda. Ochieng first went abroad in 1955 after Mutebi was already born. This puts Daudi Ochieng more than 4000 miles away from Ms Sarah Kisosonkole at the time Mutebi was conceived.

Kabaka Mutebi II


3. In Mutesa’s book, The Desecration of My Kingdom (1967), he himself describes being with Ms Sarah Kisosonkole in France in 1954. He further states how he later went with her, while pregnant, to shop in Harrods in London for the unborn Mutebi. Ms Sarah Kisosonkole was then despatched to Kampala so that she did not give birth to Mutebi outside Buganda.
4. A one time Speaker of the Buganda Lukiiko (Sheikh Ali Kulumba) affirmed that Ochieng could not possibly have been Mutebi’s father because he got into royal circles at Mengo long after Mutebi was born. Ochieng had been introduced to these circles by the late Grace Ibingira and Sam Odaka.
5. In January 1999, when this issue came to the forefront, Dr Martin Aliker, a brother to the late Daudi Baldwin Ochieng, expressed his family’s sympathy with the Kabaka of Buganda Ronald Mutebi II. He further stated that the Kabaka had been unfairly embarrassed and humiliated by “some disgruntled elements of the extended Buganda royal family.”
6. How many of us really resemble our fathers? Nobody ever said that all children must resemble their fathers. Daudi Chwa and Mutebi do not resemble their fathers, Mwanga and Mutesa II respectively. However, Chwa and Mutebi actually resemble their mothers.

Daudi Ochieng

Some totally misinformed people on this issue keep “activating” this topic for reasons best known to themselves. They even asked me if I had a photograph of Daudi Ochieng. One further asked, “Why does Ssabasajja Mutebi resemble him to the toe?” At that point, I immediately realised this person had never seen a photograph of Daudi Ochieng.

On this score, I have attached two photographs (one of Kabaka Mutebi and the other of Daudi Ochieng). Please have a look and decide for yourselves if indeed there is any resemblance whatsoever between the two as some people had claimed. I will not be surprised in the least if some misguided people argued against the above facts. If they do, that will truly show how vindictive they are towards the Baganda in particular.

  1. Deo,
    I am not joining the debate on Mutebis paternal origin.
    However I tend to think you have not done your homework well on certain pont:
    “…
    4. A one time Speaker of the Buganda Lukiiko (Sheikh Ali Kulumba) affirmed that Ochieng could not possibly have been Mutebi’s father because he got into royal circles at Mengo long after Mutebi was born. Ochieng had been introduced to these circles by the late Grace Ibingira and Sam Odaka.

    That speaker is distorting history. Daudi Ocheng got to know Kabaka Muteesa already as a student at BUDO!!!

    At the time, noble children / crown princes from all over Uganda were sent to Budu, There are many Acoli who were at Budo at the time including my own uncles.

    At some holiday even some royal baganda students (including girls) followed with Ocheng to Gulu. In fact, they were even out at “RHUMBA” ( Disco).

    A few people from that time are still alive.

  2. Mutebi II cannot be the son of Mutesa II. Has the writer even seen a portrait of Mutesa II? The two cannot even belong to the same clan.

    And there is some thing called DNA that can prove paternity, I guess the two (Mutesa and Ochieng) have living relatives for a sample……….
