WHY LUO WOMEN ARE DRY DURING SEX


by Abdikarim Hussein

Introducer of topic(Man): Why is it that our Luo Women are relatively drier than their Bantu counterparts? One school of thought argues that they’re not “endowed by nature”, while others attribute this condition to the kinds of foods and drinks that our dear ladies consume.
Lady1: @ Introducer…Did you
do your Research very well..?
being dry is not associated with
foods & drinks..some ladies
have lots of water naturally and
others have little that has to be
drained real well..what i mean
here is…You have to do your
work as a man..by romancing
your woman thoroughly….i
promise you water will start to
flow on its on own……most guys
tend to ignore fore play & yet its
very important for
ladies……Cheers!
Man1: How universal is this
claim that ‘Luo women are dry’?
I want to be that the maxim is
false. What litmus test did the
explorers of ‘dryness’ of Luo
women use to arrive at this
discovery. If it is a resaerch,
what sample of women was
selected and how was the
sample arrived at?? Anyway we
shall se the arguments………..
Lady2: Majority of the taps will
flow if opened the right way.
Maybe this reflects more on the
men docking at the stations of
these women. For me, my tap
can even overflow when tapped
right (lots of foreplay even
when not in the mood or if for
any reason I am already in the
mood) but with no foreplay, as
dry as the desert!
Man 2: Seems Introducer has
found the ultimate answer just
from our dear ladies 1 and 2.
It’s a proven fact that any well
aroused lady or man through
foreplay must wet up. @
Introducer, take your time with
our dear sister, working on her
gently b4 penetration and I
promise to prove your theory
wrong.!
Any more Luos sisters out
there!!!!
Man 3: True i agree. If you pay
peanuts, u get monkeys to work
for u. if u cant get a lady in the
mood, expect sahara desert?
Men have to take time and really
get the ladies to also enjoy. it is
a two way traffic.
Man 4: I totally disagree with
this argument of our beautiful
ladies being dry, I also agree
with other members who
argued that with foreplay u get
wet whether u lyk it or not. Ppl
who complain that our ladies hv
this problem r ppl who shoot
first n ask question later. My
bros first u must ask question
then shoot as much u lyk,
assuring ur self total
submission.
Man 5: Thnx guys 4 your
threads to the topic I posted.
Much as I wouldnt talk up my
prowess between the sheets
(coz no1 can testify to that); it is
a fact that ladies arent equally
blessed along those lines.
Although lack of vaginal
lubrication is mostly highly
attributed to limited excitement
during foreplay, other factors
also come into question, e.g
levels of estrogen, birth control
pills, diet,stress, nature etc.
It is from the last point tht i
based my topic.
Lady 3: Introducer, I am actually
very offended by your
generalizing question. Not even
to say “SOME” luo women but
just “LUO WOMEN” in general! u
make it sound like most of us
are dry all the time. Well, u have
tried more luo women while i
have not even tried one. But let
me speak for myself and
hopefully give you some tips
that might work for your Luo
woman that you ave tried who
apparently seems always dry.
First of all, my Acholi/Luo darling
is called Ocibo, What a
coincident…huh?
let me share with you what
works for me in regards to
getting me wet.
1. A combination of me sucking
Okello and an epikack.
2. Ocibo fingering me
3. Ocibo massaging my clits
4. Ocibo sucking my boobs.
5. A comibination of Ocibo’s
tongue in my mouth and his
finger in my vagina
These small interaction that may
not worth much to a man might
mean life or death for a
woman’s orgasm. Now men,
don’t think any of these would
automatically work at night
when during the day you were
being a jerk and she is probably
so pissed of at you…no it may
not work.
Well Introducer, good luck with
your next luo catch.
Man 6: haahhh u luos that topic
is very sickening .dont u think u
r talking to minors,
as well or is “Achilimit” is about
obscenity?
Man 7: We are made of what
we eat!!!! May be i should ask
the same question from a
different angle! ”WHY ARE LUO
WOMEN VERY PHYSICALLY
STRONGER THAN THE BANTU
WOMEN’
Am sure many of u will agree
that it is because of what they
eat and that the Bantu eat
Matoke and that is why they are
physically weaker.
But they are not totally dry like a
desert! i would rather say they
just have enough
Introducer: lol@ Lady3
Lady 3 : Gwokto, you are very
welcome to Acholimit: The best
page on facebook.
Whatever we discuss here on
Acholimit, I am just glad that it
brought you on our Luo Jets.
now, lets take off together
brother.
Enjoy Acholimit.
Man 8: to condemn all our lovly
ladies as dry is not right. I tend
to believe that alot of factors are
in play.Man 3 summarised it all!
By the way are Kenyan Luos
included? and they are the best
in bed!
Lady 4: so true Lady 3, on the
massaging of th clits, boobs and
all th foreplay.
of course not all luo women are
dry…for me its sumtyms even
just th mental foreplay that gets
me dripping. talking dirty to my
man over th phone (calls/
txts)…or dirty chatting wth him
online…
THAT alone can get me so
aroused that i need a fresh set
of panties. lol
all th same, theres nothing that
beats some slow, gud
foreplay…so that by time he
can’t hold it anymore, am also
ready (& wet enuf) for sum
mindblowing lovemaking ;-))
Intro: And the award goes to
Acholimit….. The most interactive
page on FB
Man 9: Luo women lack fluids
but are strong. Bantu have
basins of fluids but are weak.
Thats Gods perfect plan.
Ok, ladies who are bitter here.
Try out a three some.
Bring a Mukiga lady and
yourself and get a man to hack
u both. You will see who has
more fluids!
THERE U WILL SEE THE FACT OF OF
MR DON.
Don I think u brought out this
topic after experimenting-
right?:)
Man 10: Kamba ladies are said
to be the wildest in bed but in
playing the game, iuo ladies r
the best so far….
Ladies who eat a lot of cabbage
and potatoes tenp to be
unplesantly wet. i mean
overfowing. luo ladies only
come good enourg to lubricate
the shaft and wet the sheets a
little, which i find very nice
Lady 4: now therz a luo man
who appreciates his luo
women! 🙂

Would Daudi Ochieng, an Acholi, have made an excellent Katikiro of Buganda?


Daudi Ochieng

By Ssekajja via UAH forum

A true Muganda nationalist, should embrace the idea of even a non-Muganda, to be presented as Katikiro of Buganda, as long as they truly subscribe to the notion of defending and promoting the interests of the Kingdom.

Would Daudi Ochieng, an Acholi, have made an excellent Katikiro of Buganda? There’s no doubt in my mind, that this non-Muganda by birth would most probably, indeed, have been a better Katikiro, than the master of cozenage, Mayiga, who is cajoling the sons and daughters of Kintu out of the land of their grandfathers.

“Bano be bamu ku baana ba Sir Edward Gavumenti ya Uganda b’eweerera, okuva ku ddyo: Omumbejja Kagere, Nassolo, Sir Edward, ne Mutebi”
From Musizi, November 1968


Mayiga, himself, once described Daudi Ochieng as a true nationalist, with good leadership qualities, who defended Buganda kingdom interests in Parliament faithfully without any fear. Try and compare that Acholi with our real born Baganda in Parliament today.

Pride is what the Bakopi benefit from Buganda kingdom right now!


BY DR.EDWARD KAYONDO VIA UAH FORUM

To me it all begins with the fact that the Kingdom is bound to loose its grip even more with the generations to come for lack of relevancy. Historically there was a reason to be part of a strong Kingdom and part of it was fear of reprisal if you didn’t support the King or the hope of getting financial gains part of which was land. Apart from Land the other main pride the bakopi have for the kingdom is the cultural practices which are also being degraded with time.

Steeping back a little I also can argue that the so called Buganda land is individually owned by different entities in the Kingdom including the royals and other powerful entities in the kingdoms, which means that the benefits a mukopi will get from Buganda re-acquiring this land are still a mystery to me.
So to me the story of Buganda land issues is a story of one of a few remaining Kingdoms in Africa, one that I am proud to be part of, a Kingdom that has its one of the two remaining valuable assets being systematically sold off to the highest bidder, a Kingdom that is now more so concerned with power and financial gain at the expense of culture and historical preservation.

The government as a leech to Buganda property was on the other side a custodian of Buganda property as many Bakopi like me tend to address these individually owned pieces of land. My main concern is that as these individuals get what belongs to them ( ironically a self defeating point to my discussion) there will be no reason why they cant turn around and sell this land to the highest bidders which most likely its going to be the rich and famous in Uganda, most likely not within the Baganda and with these legal transactions the Kingdom will find its self even much weaker and less relevant to the bakopi who are the bedrock of its existence.

Katikkiro Mayiga


We all know all men are not equal in all Kingdoms , and we all know depending on who you are the benefits are different. That’s why many baganda don’t have land while others do. Some one referred to it as those who don’t have being jealousy and another member gave an examples where squatters who included Baganda were kicked of some land.

Pride is what the Bakopi benefit, pride to be a muganda, pride to share history of once a very powerful kingdom in Africa, Pride nothing more.
Now in todays world, when one has no financial benefit their royalty is on a short and weak string. Baganda have not proved to be so royal when money gets in the mix. The kingdom has no financial incentives I know of todate to excite the bakopi in particular. So then Pride is the savior of the kingdom, unlike the past times where Kings could use threats, weapons, gifts to bring people into submission this era is a different one. That’s why the Kingdom leadership is pushing towards a Federo system for some power to control its people but this was immunized in the constitution as they are banned from holding any political position.

Now as I see it if the Kingdom take building Bugandas pride back as its main goal which will entail preservation of History and Culture they have a much better chance of strengthening the Kingdom.Now that’s where the Land issue comes in, Land is the cultural bedrock of the Kingdom, and my worry is that what is regarded as Bugandas land is disappearing at a very first rate in the middle of the night. The government as a custodian of Buganda land had a siphone on the rate of disappearance, when it gives this up, I only hope that Buganda has a plan at least where the rate of disappearance can be controlled.

I am Proud to be a Muganda, my son however cares less, he sees no relevance of the Kingdom in his life , my grandkids who will most likely be mothered by a pretty American girl will even be father away from the kingdom that’s why I have a feeling that I will be the last Muganda standing in my nuclear family.

Occasionally my theories on this forum have been wrong, and I hope and pray that this one is wrong too.

The current Buganda leaders should listen to ideas from online forums!


Mr.Enock Kiyaga is the current Kabaka Representative in Manchester and surroundings

BY DR. EDWARD KAYONDO VIA UAH

The issue with African leaders that includes those in the Kingdom is that when you bring ideas that one are competing with what they already have or two that they dont see any financial gain from in the immediate future those ideas will be dead on arrival or you will be labeled as challenging leadership.. That’s why cultural issues and that’s how I personally define Buganda ( a cultural entity because for the longest even on this forum I have asked for a definition of who a muganda is and no single person has given me any convicing answer) only exist as long as the numbers of those who practice them are enough to sustain them. Failure of Buganda to address this issue first as I explained before puts all other Buganda plans in jeopardy because its all about numbers and unlike what the Kingdom would like to depict those who care about the issues of Buganda are decreasing in number especially because very few gain from the Kingdom as it is.

I agree and we can get more than one example about ideas that sprouted from people and found their ways up the Kingdom but for sure there was some pillar within the Kingdom that worked hard on them too. But back to the cultural definition, and back to the Kanzu, when the King started putting it on it became part of our culture. Where the King goes masses follow, so if you want an idea to be big and have the full participation of all the people as a unit the gwanga mujje has to originate from the center of the kingdom.

Baganda are not short of ideas, those who are at the center of the kingdom however have their personal battles to fight and the royals as we know them also have different strategies as its survival for the fittest and scrambling for financial candies . In such a state nothing unifying can come out of the Kingdom. We also write about Buganda because we care its not complaining as such because our survival doesn’t depend on the existence of the Kingdom which takes us back to the issue of pride. Mengos full participation at any stage gives any project the legitimacy it needs and participation of all the people of Buganda.

Not so sure what Buganda development has done for ll these years, I can also point out that Buganda has a prime piece of land within the City that’s the Lubiri but for years now i am not sure what has transpired, just as an example.

It would have been good if the Kingdom is open to ideas because so many good ideas have been floating on these forums. However the mentality of the Lukiko and our King know it all complicates everything and unless they decide nothing will be done.

The main issue is that as Buganda tries to maintain its Culture and strength its leaders want to keep everything as it was longtime ago, the mentality that cultures dont change is what eventually leads to the eventual extinction of the same. I always ask my fellow baganda how the White Kanzu became the Buganda tranditional male wear and they dont want to discuss it because way back that wasnt part of our culture, but we all know how it crept in but that doesn’t matter any more because now it is.

What is next for Buganda however good the ideas we table on these forums are has its roots in the Lukiko and the Kabaka. If they so choose to open up this debate and are willing and open enough to work with the people openly and publicly on the ideas presented with a propbable chance of votiong for these changes in some way, then we all will feel part of it these changes and will work towards that.

We all know the constituion prohibits the cultural leaders from participating in political issues, but who needs a political party if you can get your cultural members to accomplish what in many cases politicians should cover? Lets say you have quarrels about markets in the city, Buganda has land, opens up several markets baganda markets, opens up several mini Bulange offices, Buys more Bus zabaganda, eventually becoming one of the largest employers of people in Buganda all within the constitution, who do you think will be the strongest political force? But as I have asked before on this forum in the current Buganda Kingdom omukopi afunilawa? Your ideas will never get to the top and there is no financial gain so what you have as a mukopi is just pride in being omuganda, and some time the force behind that pride carries you only far.

So in brief what is next for Buganda to me is the Lukiko and the King to find ways of engaging the Baganda, and its willingness to change some cultural practices that are unfitiing in this current world, changes that must come from the King him self. With this kind of engagement not only will our culture be preserved but the pride of the Baganda will have justification and participation will; increase and ideas will flow in endlessly.

The Reasons why some Bahima, Itesos and Karamajongs fear using toilets!


BY SIMON OKURUT PETER VIA UAH

The practice of latrines was alien to our cultures and even today, there are people who fear to use latrines because of cultural taboos. For instance, women in some cultures refuse to use pit-latrines because they believe such women will not produce.

In some parts of Teso people still use bushes as latrines. Some dig latrines but never use them. The same applies to Karamoja, no big deal. I went to one home with a beautiful latrine but when I went to use it, the padlock had rusted meaning it was there but never used; the key-hole was blocked completely; they had to break the padlock but by then the wasps that had colonized the room were disturbed, so when the door opened, we had to run away and I forgot about using the latrine until I reached Moroto Town.

From the professional point of view, we should not judge other cultures using our cultural lenses; every cultural group is right in its ways and a person from a different culture needs to understand why certain practices take place in other cultures, there is usually a good cultural reason.

It is not the hate of hard labour involved in digging pit-latrines or graves that force people to seek self-exile; rather the taboos associated or reasons undisclosed with the practice. Some cite barrenness if women use latrines. Even men squatting to aim the holes will have their male organs pointing at the holes sucking “bad air”, the same organ used for producing so why risk not bearing children they reason?

The other often undisclosed reason is that feces and decomposing bodies are good manure producing materials- scattered allover the bushes around provide natural fertilizers- compost manure – bumper harvest as a result.

A well to do family from western Uganda invited the father to a Kampala posh home. The old man wanted to use the washroom; he was shown a clean room beside where he sleeps, close to the kitchen. The old man protested bitter saying, ” You people are bastards; you cook and eat here, you sleep here and you also defecate in the house, no way, take me to defecate outside” they compromised with mzee so they took him to a neighbours to use a pit-latrine that was outside the man house. Cultural beliefs are very strong and it takes much education and patience to change some of the beliefs, some persist.

The Vatican is on a 109 acre land, smaller than the Lubiri but they’ve done better!

Milk shakes come in all flavors, you can basically mix whatever you want add some milk and call it a milk shake. Looking a head the issue of who is a muganda will be a definition of a milk shake. We are up to a point where the lineage cannot be defined.This brings me to the issue of the Lubiri. I grew around this perimeter and I revered it together with the Bulange. It so happens that the Kingdom is so engrossed in collecting funds and they are putting the issue of maintaining the tribal aspects on the side. By the way I think you can definitely do both.

Kabaka Ronald Muwenda Mutebi as a youth


My idea of the Lubiri will be a big museum of the kingdom, to put it better the enclosure can be used to create the liking of a Vatican, a state within in a state. This will not only reduce the expense of the kingdom but it will consolidate all the aspects of the kingdom in one prime spot. The sky is the limit as to what can be done in an enclosure like that, ranging from using Luganda as the only language when you step in fence , Buganda banks ,school , a post office for each clan, let you minds roll. This can all be done in the concept that monies can even be collected, a hotel, in the enclosure, a function hall. I mean take all the Buganda kingdom and start running its business in one place. The result will be that with the concentration of all activities the pride to the kingdom will be restored and somehow we can preserve our history. Let us have a library for each and every king.

For those who think this is farfetched, Information from wikpedia.org copied below illustrates how the Vatican works.

The Vatican is on a 109 acre land, smaller than the Lubiri. The Vatican City has its own post office, fire brigade, police service, commissary (supermarket), bank (the automatic teller machines are the only ones in the world to offer customers service in Latin, among other languages), railway station, electricity generating plant, and publishing house. The Vatican also controls its own Internet domain (.Va), it has the Vatican Radio.

This unique, non-commercial economy is also supported financially by contributions (known as Peter’s Pence) from Catholics throughout the world, the sale of postage stamps and tourist mementos, fees for admission to museums, and the sale of publications. The incomes and living standards of lay workers are comparable to, or somewhat better than, those of counterparts who work in the city of Rome.

The Vatican City issues its own coins. It has used the euro as its currency since January 1,1999, owing to a special agreement with the EU (council decision 1999/98/CE). Euro coins and notes were introduced in January 1, 2002. Due to its rarity, Vatican euro coins are highly sought by collectors. Until the adoption of the Euro, Vatican coinage and stamps were denominated in their own Vatican lira currency, which was on par with the Italian lira.
It also has its own bank, Istituto per le Opere di Religione (also known as the Vatican Bank, and with the acronym IOR).

Budget: Revenues (2003) $252 million; expenditures (2003) $264 million.
Industries: printing and production of few mosaics and staff uniforms; worldwide banking and financial activities.

· Almost all of Vatican City’s 932 citizens live inside the Vatican’s walls. The Vatican citizenry consists mainly of clergy, including high dignitaries, priests, nuns, as well as the Swiss Guard. There are also about 3,000 lay workers who comprise the majority of the Vatican work force, but who reside outside the Vatican. All of the City’s citizens are Roman Catholic and Roman Catholicism is, rather obviously, the State religion of the country. There are no other places of worship inside the Vatican City other than private Catholic Chapels and St Peter’s Basilica.

·The official language is Latin. Italian and, to a lesser extent, other languages are generally used for most conversations, publications, and broadcasts. German is the official language of the Swiss Guard. The Vatican’s official website languages are Italian, German, English, French, Spanish, and Portuguese.

In this world you either evolve or die. The thinking of those who govern the Buganda kingdom is locked in the past, it won’t be long when all those who call them selves Baganda will all be different brands of Milk shakes.

For God and My Country.

Had Museveni attacked Mengo, would Mumbere have shown up?


The problem is not about the kingdoms it is about Ugandans. When the population in Mukura gets boiled in train wagons, the people in Kasese do not worry about it for Kasese is a free land. They forget that the reason why the people of Mukura got boiled is because the government its self is a killer. There is not a single parent, a politician, a church leader let alone community leader that rose up from Barlonyo to condemn the killing of our people in Luwero, not even one. They thought at a time that the people in Luwero died for they were bad people, they forgot that the government its self was a killer. It ended up going after them too. And I opine that had the people of Barlonyo stood up an defended us when we were being killed, they would have saved their own lives for the government would stop killing us. The problem is so large that Abbey Semuwemba does not get upset for a Ugandan has been murdered, he gets a upset for a Moslem has been murdered. That is the danger in the true Uganda reasoning.

I have lost very many friends, some of them right from this city to The Movement. And they have made a whack of money out of the Movement. But you and I know that as soon as The movement does not need you it kills you. Yet everyone plays Mr. smart of I will be the only one that do not get killed. I was surprised that the murdering of Ugandans in Ombacci was never raised by Ugandans, it remained a secret to a point that even the people that were born in West Nile refused to raise the death of their very own people. Do you know how Ombacci was made public? A very serious Ugandan out of this country, flew into Sudan with a pile of doctors and politicians, they did a study by visiting those that survived the Acholi massacre, the international community documented the Acholi atrocities, and then it still remained a private matter in Uganda. So the international community documented the massacre in West Nile but Uganda society did not print it on Uganda papers.

The very first time the Ombacci genocide was made public was during the Acholi series when I decided to out it publicly. That was the first time that massacre took rounds in Uganda forums. Other words no Ugandan saw a value into posting it. ->And boy was I threatened?

Museveni continues to kill Ugandans for they only complain when their parents or members of family are killed and as soon they burry them the rest of family keeps quiet and asks for money to steal.

Buganda Land Board’s Legal Status explained!


mm

BY GEORGE OKELLO
LONDON

1. BLB is a legal entity that acts as an administrative arm of the Buganda kingdom, which I believe, is a legal entity recognised by the Ugandan Constitution. It is the equivalent of a department or section in a private Company.
2. BLB is agent of Buganda Kingdom and its powers and privileges are limited to the extent that the rights and privileges of the Buganda Kingdom are described in the Uganda Constitution.
3. BLB has no jurisdiction over land in Uganda or any other matter over land outside of those lands designated as property of the Buganda Kingdom.
4. BLB has no locus standing over national land issues, except only to the extent to which it is permitted to do so either by delegated legislation or where it is in conformity with its duties and responsibilities as the agent of the Buganda Kingdom.
5. BLB can sue or be sued in its capacity as agent of the Buganda Kingdom.
6. BLB is mandated to obey national laws regarding ownership, transfer and regulation of land. It must not breach any rights, obligations or privileges granted to it by Stautory land Laws.
7. BLB is subject to both the civil and criminal jurisdiction of the laws of Uganda.

PS:

1. The BLB is likely to get into dispute with several lease-holders in the years to come. This partcularly applies to people who obtained leases in the period 1967-1995 when Museveni’s Land Act was passed, the effect of which was to reverse President Obote’s nationalisation of properties previously belonging to Kingdoms and Colonial Chiefs under Colonial arrangements contained in the Buganda Kingdom of 1900, and the Uganda Independence Settlement of 1962.
2. The BLB is likely to get into legal disputes to people who acquired leases, rights or entitlements to Buganda Lands which were sequestrated under Mr Idi Amin’s Land reform Decree of 1975.
5. Of specific interest or concern will be the compensation to be awarded to people who acquired lease, licenses and entitlements in good faith in the period 1967-1999 and who have subsequently made developments on the land worth several millions of dollars in today’s money.

THIS IS THE FATHER OF THE NATION!


Father of the Nation is an honorific title given to a man considered the driving force behind the establishment of his country, state, or nation.In postcolonial Africa, “father of the nation” was a title used by many leaders both to refer to their role in the independence movement as a source of legitimacy, and to use paternalist symbolism as a source of continued popularity. On Joseph Stalin’s seventieth birthday in 1949, he was bestowed with the title “Father of Nations” for his establishment of “people’s democracies” in countries occupied by the USSR after World War II.
UN
Most UPCs bestow this tittle on Obote but the right person in this aspect is Sir Edward Mutesa II because of his contribution to our independence. Obote contributed very little to our independence. His UPC faction was a result of separating away from ANC and he wouldnt have been popular if he hadnt allied with the Kabaka Yekka. He wouldnt even have become PM if he hadnt got the support of Sir Edward Mutesa II. Uganda would have become independent with or without Obote’s input.

King Freddie, on the other hand, made a difference. He is a man of values who stood up to everything he believed in, every moral, every righteousness that he preached, he made an effort to live that. He was the main key behind the establishment of our nation.Virtually every Ugandan knows that he was the first President of Uganda.By many accounts, merely seeing Mutesa was enough to convince most men and women that he was the leader of the nation. Isn’t that sufficient for us?

Buganda’s Magna Carta!


Almighty close to the same time the Magna Carta was being written, a Group of about 14 strong or so under the Chairman of Kintu met at Nnono in Busujju and set out to write Buganda’s Unwritten Constitution. Like the British Counter Part, the Constitution Promulgated the Creation of an Executive, A Judiciary, and a Legislature and a Defense Force.

The Executive.

This was headed by the King ( Kabaka) King Mother ( Namasole) Prime Minister ( Katikkiro) Parliament ( Lukiiko), a Hieracacy of Appointed Chiefs ( Abakungu) from Ssaza, through Gombolola, Miruka down to Batongole. And there was a House of Lords ( Abataka) though, unlike the British, these are Hereditary and are appointed independently by the Clans. These are the ones who kept the Kingdom going when the Appointed Govt. Was destroyed at the Massacre at Mengo.

Every Clan was given a specific role to play so that everyone through his clan, feels part of the system.

The Judiciary.

Jusice was cadministered through Ebitawuluzi ( Local Courts) with provision to appeal through the Katikkiro right up to the Kabaka. And if still not satisfied, one could appeal to Amaduuda ( Supreme Court of Appeal). Over time, other Courts such as that of Kasujju Lubinga of the Lugave clan (to try Members of the Royal Family), Kisekwa, ( to resolve Clan disputes) and Omutaka Kibaale of the Mpeewo Clan who tries the Kabaka (and acts as Regent when the Kabaka goes to the warpath).

Yes. Even the Kabaka of Buganda can be tried. In Traditional Buganda, the Kabaka used to send his children to stay with Commoners so that they get the feel. Daudi Chwa, father of Muteesa, sent the young prince to stay with a chief called Mugwanya. The young boy thought he had bern disowned by getting sent out of the Palace. He reported his father to Kibaale who summoned and tried the Kabaka. The Kabaka lost the case and was ordered to pay the aggrieved prince a cow.

Defense

Although there was no standing Army, there was Omujaasi ( Army Commander) and an Admiral of the Navy ( Gabunga of the Mamba Clan).

Education

And then, there were the Education and Leadership Training Centres (Ebisaakaate ) which existed at every Chiefs Residence, and in the Kabaka’s Palace where Abagalala n’Abasebeyi ( pages) learnt the ropes. The most famous of those who rose through this was Katikkiro Gulemye Kaggwa who was a Page at Ssekabaka Mwanga Basammula’s Court. So were the Uganda Martyrs. The, Naabagereka has re established the Kisaakaate.

Taxes

Taxes were collected by the Chiefs in the form of Envujjo n’Obusuulu and taken to Enkuluze ( Treasury). Infact, what the Katikkiro is doing in the form of Ettoffaali is nothing new. The only difference is that he comes to collect it instead of the Chiefs taking it to him.

All this came to an end ( a temporary end) at about down on tuesday the 24th of May 1966.
