Today 27th-August-2020 marks exactly 21 years of marriage of His Royal Highness Ronald Edward Fredrick Kimera Muwenda Mutebi II the Kabaka (King) of Buganda.
It was a Friday 27th-August-1999 when the historical Royal wedding took place at Saint Paul’s Cathedral, Namirembe. The bride Her Royal Highness Sylivia Nagginda the Nabagereka (Queen) of Buganda a daughter to the late John Luswata met the Kabaka in the United Kingdom where he (Kabaka) had paid a courtesy visit with the Kingdom’s Prime minister (Kattikiro) then Mulwanyammuli Ssemwogerere.
The historical Royal wedding had remarkable guests that included; H.E Yoweri Kaguta Museveni, president of the Republic of Uganda and her First Lady Mrs Kataha Janet Museveni, Zulu King Goodwill Zwelithini and other royal delegations from across the world.
The king’s attire alone was literally priceless since the designer decided to remain silent about the cost of it. This had a robe of richly woven golden threads embroidered with diamonds studs and golden crown whereas the Nabagereka’s tailor made wedding gown was said to have costed tens of millions of ugadan shillings.
This year’s anniversary has come at a time when the people of Buganda Kingdom are not certain about the whereabout of Kabaka Mutebi following the rumors that keep circulating on social media.
However these rumors were cleared by the Kingdom’s Prime Minister (Kattikiro) Owk. Charles Perter Mayiga early this month in a statement that confirmed the King’s official leave to Kenya that will last for two months.
His Royal Highness Ronald Edward Fredrick Kimera Muwenda Mutebi II was born on 13th-Apirl- 1955 by Ssekabaka Sir Edward Muteesa II. He was enthroned on 31st July-1993 at Nagalabi, Buddo following the restoration of Ugandan Kingdoms.
With Her Royal Highness Sylivia Nagginda they gave birth to Princess Katrina Sarah Kirabo Ssangalyambogo on the 4thh of July 2001 though the king had born a number of royal children i.e. Prince Savio Muwenda Juunju Suuna Kiweewa, Princess Joan Nassolo, Princess Victoria Nkinzi. In July 2011, Prince Ssemakookiro Richard was born and introduced to the Buganda Kingdom in January 2012 by Kattikiro Engineer John Baptist Walusimbi.
We, therefore, join the rest of the Buganda Kingdom to congratulate the Royal Couple upon making 21 years in marriage.
