One Ugandan lady posted a query asking why there are more Rwabyomeres and not Nakigandas as Ugandan ambassadors abroad. Personally I don’t mind about the tribe of whoever is appointed Ugandan ambassador so long as they do their job well.
This lady’s insinuation is that there are more Banyankole or westerners than Baganda appointed as ambassadors. Facts are stubborn things and I list below, all Uganda’s ambassadors for you to make your judgements.

22-Sudan: Ambassador Betty Akech Okullu (Acholi)

23-Burundi: Ambassador Brig. Matayo Kyaligonza (Munyoro)
24-Rwanda: Ambassador Richard Kabonero (Mukiga)
25-UK: High Commissioner Joan Rwabyomere (Mutoro)
Deputy High Commissioner Mumtaz Kassam (Indian Ugandan)
26-S. Africa: High Commissioner Kweronda Ruhemba (Munyankole)
Deputy High Commissioner Kayiza Matovu (Muganda)
27-Nigeria: High Commissioner Davit Etuket (Teso)
28-USA: Ambassador Prof Perez Kamunanwire (Munyankole)
Deputy Ambassador Charles Ssentongo (Muganda)
29-UN: Permanent Representative Dr Ruhakana Rugunda (Mukiga)
Deputy Permanent Representative Patrick Mugoya (Musoga).
Fact 1: Out of 29 ambassadors, 12 are Baganda while 7 deputy heads of mission are Baganda.
Fact 2: Out of 29 ambassadors, 4 are Banyankole, 2 are Acholi, 2 are Bakiga; the rest you can calculate.
Bottom line: Museveni must hate Baganda so much to give them such a disproportinately high number of ambassadors.
Lesson: Rehema, when you see tribalism in everything, you are either a hate-monger or an obscurantist. You can build Uganda without distorting facts!
I rest my case, for now!
