The Kingdom of Buganda is still very much relevant today. The reason why the Kingdom looks irrelevant to some people is that post-colonial Uganda was created and developed superficially without considering pre-colonial organization of Uganda politically, culturally and socially.
Take a quick look here how Uganda was organized before the arrival of people such as Captain Lugard, Grant, Speke, Sir Samuel Baker and the likes:
-The Batembuzi (sounds like killer of goats) the harbingers or pioneers whose reign dates back to the height of Africa’s Bronze Age.
-The Bacwezi Dynasty credited with the founding of the ancient empire of Kitara.
-The Babito Dynasty which followed the Bachwezi dynasty under Omukama of Bunyoro
-The counties of Orusi, Parombo and Okworo which pledges allegiance to Rwoth Nga (Nga means who in the Alur/Jonam language). The Alur people have even attempted to integrate all Alur chiefdoms into confederation with Jobi (buffalo) as the head.
-The small Kingdom of Toro which survive many tumultuous years in its infancy but eventually curved itself an island of goodwill and enjoyed peace and prosperity for a century.
-The Kingdom of Buganda founded by Kato Kintu from the Nile region in 1300 has survived many onslaughts and still going stromh.
-The Isebantu Kyabazinga of Busoga who brought and continues to bring his people together.
The reason why Uganda continues to suffer identity crisis is the failure to recognize, accept and respect its past. No society has ever survived without acknowledging and respecting its own past however primitive and backward it was and continues to be. The Obotes, Kinyattas, Nyereres, Kuandas and Bandas wanted to transform Africa into modern too quickly and that is why we continue to have failed states on the continent every year. The Republic of South Sudan is a classic example..it has failed only after two years of coming into existence. The President two days ago dismissed his entire cabinet!!
