THE Buganda Kingdom throne is under threat. A joint statement signed by the Katikkiro of Buganda, Eng. JB Walusimbi, the Ssabalangira, Moses Kayima and Omutaka Nakirembeka, named some members of the royal family among those threatening the throne.

Those cited include Prince Bamweyana Walugembe, Prince Mutebi Ssekamanya and Princess Gladys Nandawula. Others are Edward Kimera, Paul Lukenge, Genza Kajumba, Lwanga, Ndagire, Bannaava and Bassaava.

They group has reportedly persistently been attacking the personalities of the Kabaka, the Katikkiro and other senior members of the royal family, like the Nnalinya of the Kasubi Royal Tombs.

The statement also noted that the members were relentlessly trying to usurp the powers of the Kabaka and to grab a chain of his properties, including the 350-mile banana plantation in Lubiri.

“Those who are threatening the throne are being used by the enemies of the kingdom who want to see it collapse. They are doing it openly during meetings.”

Before drafting the statement, the royal family held a meeting on Thursday that was presided over by JB Walusimbi and discussed the issue before coming up with the resolutions.

The statement warns the Baganda against listening to or dealing with any of the members of the royal family not designated by the Kabaka.
