Buganda’s next King shown off
King of Buganda Kabaka Ronald Muwenda Mutebi II excited the people of Sentema in Busiro yesterday when he granted the first appearance of his heir to the throne, Prince Richard Ssemakokiro.
The 5 year old, who is anticipated to be the next King of the country’s largest monarchy, came much to the relief of Buganda Kingdom in 2012, ending the decade-long wait for Kabaka Mutebi’s successor.
Mutebi’s matrimonial wife Sylvia Nagginda brought forth a singular daughter, Princes Katrina Ssangalyambogo, since their wedding in 1999.
And while Kabaka Mutebi has another son Prince Jjunju, the Kingdom’s tradition does not permit the monarch to make his first born his successor.
