A case where Princess Irene Nalinnya Ndagire sued Tabliq imams for vandalising Buganda’s royal burial grounds in Mukono district cannot proceed because she is out of the country.

Ndagire, the caretaker of the burial grounds at Mayangayanga, Kimenyedde in Mukono, sued the area Imams, Sulaiman Kafeero and Khalifan Kiyingi, for reportedly destroying the royal tombs of Buganda’s first Chief Prince, Lukanga, to build a Mosque and a school.

Ndagire’s lawyer, Wycliff Birungi, told Justice Patrick Tabaro recently that he could not proceed with the 2001 case because his client was out of the country.

Ndagire and the Imams had agreed to settle the matter out of court but the deal could not be realised after she left the country.

Ndagire (above) sued former Mukono resident district commissioner Asadu Lutale, Kafeero and Kiyingi for destroying the royal tombs before putting up a Mosque and a school in the area.
She said the Buganda Kingdom had warned the Tabliqs against their ‘illegal actions’ but that they never took heed.
