In addition, when you go to Rwanda, you will be able to locate the chief estates of the Mpeewo clan. In the Prefecture of Kyandondo, they have estates in the following communes: Bulaynkole, Kungu, Kibone, Kiryowa, Bugamba, Nkukuba, Bubale and Kiwanguzi near Gitarama.
In the prefecture of Kyaggwe, the Kulubyas and the rest of the Mpeewos have their estates in the communes of Mawoto, Bubiru and Sugu in the vicinity of Gikongoro.
In the prefecture of Busiro, they have estates in the communes of Nagalabi and Nganji in the areas of Kigali; while in the prefecture of Buddu, their estates are in Kanabulamu south of Cyangungu. So, Amelia Kulubya is as Rwandese as they all probably come!
Ah!…and it is not accidental that the Mpeewo man, Mugambe Ezekiel Sekiwala (Amelia Kulubya’s grandfather) was an important gombolola chief in Singo. Singo was the residence of the Kabaka’s important yirizi (fetish) called Nyonyane Kikulu. The royal rug, Kiyu was also mad in the prefecture of Singo…..Mpeewo was in charge of all that…….ah!…plus the royal spear, Nakawangala.
I hope we shall not confuse the Prefecture of Busiro with the commune of Bushiru, in Gisenyi where Juvenal Habyarimana hailed from
I have also read somewhere where some people are claiming that since Ms Kyambadde has stated that the Kabbiro of her clan is Kayozi, and also stated that her clan is Mpeewo, therefore she is a narwajja okwota( meaning a foreigner in Buganda)…….for gender balance given that Kayozi is a kabbiro only for Musu. According to these people, Kayozi, the Kangaroo rat is a junior totem only for Musu. That is not true. In fact there are other clans that share Kabbiros or Bubbiro: Ngo and Ngogge both have the Kassimba or genet as their Kabbiro. There is also the second branch of Mmamba that has the kerekere as their kabbiro, the same as Ffumbe. The main Mmamba branch has Muguya as the Kabbiro…etc etc.
There are also clans that have opted to amalgamate with others:Katinvuma with Butiko, Crow and Otter, the same with Jackal; Dog (Rev Nakawombe’s clan) with Civet cat etc etc….they become branches but retain their bubbiro. So, you can have one clan with 2 or more bubbiro….etc
