I have seen a number of people advancing low grade arguments to demean Banyarwanda as not being friends of Buganda Kingdom.
This comes after a deserving rebuttal of Ssisimuka CEO Frank Gashumba to Buganda Kattikiro Charles Peter Mayiga that Mr. Gashumba was not fit to commment on Buganda issues because at one time, he was detained at CMI.
But Mayiga himself was detained in 2007 on charges of terrorism and promoting sectarianism, but all were dropped. Does that make him a criminal?
Although Gashumba may have used a highly stinging language, he presented critical issues that need to be examined. These include Mayiga overseeing the sale of land belonging to school and health centres, lack of accountability that has led to failure to complete the Kasubi tombs although billions of shillings have bee fundraised.
To a proper mind and for the record, Banyarwanda are deep inside the kingdom of Buganda.
The mother of Kabaka Mutebi eldest son, Pence Crispin Jjunju is a Munyarwanda.
And that's not the only example. The wife of Kabaka Mutebi's brother, David Wasajja, Ms. Nankya is a Munyarwanda borne to the late DP secretary general Mathias Nsubuga.
The wives of two top Buganda Princes, Kalifan Kakungulu and Kakungulu Nakibinge are both Banyarwanda.
Mayiga is very sectarian and in a conversation with one of his aides, Denis Jjuuko, he said that whenever Mayiga is referring g to Banyankole and Banyarwanda, he uses the word Pantagonia even despite the fact that his daughter married a Munyankore.
"Therefore, the more Buganda use low thinking and reasoning tribalistic defenders with no aorta of idea that the Kabaka himself married two non Baganda and one of them a Munyarwanda the more they lose the battle," Lawbert Ssenfhja a lawyer said.
He said that people like Abbey Musinguzi of Abitex, can condemn and promote tribalism but that will annoy the Kabaka.
It is reported that already the uncle's of Prince Jjunju Umar Percyphychy Nyanzi and, Andrew Mumpenje Prince Aundrey are already angered.
The 1995 Constitution of the Republic of Uganda lists 65 tribes under the 3rd schedule in line with article 10 (a) and Banyarwanda are considered one of the indigenous tribes as from 1st February 1926 just as Baganda, Banyankore among others.
