KABAKA MUTESA 1 TO COLONEL GORDON: NJAGALA FEEZA, ZAABU, MUNDU NE’DDIINI


Here is a man after the heart of GOD, he starts with GOD and ends with GOD, how noble! He was also quite industrious and aware of lurking danger, because he asked for metals to forge spears and hoes to till the land, and then cannons and Guns wow!. I often wondered what Kabarega was like? Because he is depicted in history as the King who asked for one of the explorer”s wife!
