Busoga Kingdom has urged the public to disregard social media reports that the Chiefs of Busoga Kingdom have replaced Kyabazinga Wilberforce Gabula Nadiope with Edward Muloki Columbus.

In a statement issued on January 14, 2022, by Joseph Muvawala, the Kingdom’s Prime Minister, he emphasized that, according to the Kingdom’s constitution, once elected, the King rules until his death.

“The purported dismissal and/or election of a new Kyabazinga is false, illegal, misleading, and intended to create confusion and disunity in the Kingdom, which all peace loving Basoga and Ugandans should shun and condemn,” the statement says.

He also stated that the current Kyabazinga has been performing effectively in his duties, noting that the Kingdom has had remarkable success in areas such as cultural development, unity, education, health, and strategic relationships in the seven years since his enthronement.

“The Obwa Kyabazinga reassures the general public that these temporary occurrences, like many others before them, would be dealt with and managed,” the Prime Minister remarked.
