Prince Semei Lwkairenzi Kakungulu from Obwakamuswaga bwa Kooki is both a colonial collaborator and a nationalist.He was a colonial collaborator because he, Apollo Kaggwa and Andreya Luwandagga captured Kabaka Mwanga ll and Omukama Kabaleega in Lango, on orders of the British.However the trio and others had realized that the British were determined to colonize Buganda, as a result of 1886 and 1890 Anfglo0Gemran Agreement and Berlin Conference of 1884-86. So why do you fight a war you would now win. They managed to ensure that the Buganda nation survived colonialism, 1,000 indigenous people acquired land when else where like Kenya, Zimbabwe and South Africa, land was given to White settlers, etc…
They contributed to the modernization of this country and Kakungulu is remembered for having exported Buganda’s local administration to Eastern Uganda. In the eyes of Muca Encweru, where Kakungulu stopped is where civilization stopped, and had he stepped in Karamoja, the karamajong would not have remained walking naked and rustling cattle.
