The Busoga Kingdom has firmly denied the validity of assertions suggesting that the Kyabazinga, William Gabula Nadiope IV, was previously engaged in a formal marriage with a woman in Britain. This rebuttal comes in response to lawyers representing Alison Nadiope, who, in a letter dated November 8, 2023, wrote to Dr. Stephen Kazimba, the Archbishop of the Church of Uganda, asserting that their client was legally wedded to the Kyabazinga, with the union producing children.

The kingdom, however, countered these claims, stating that the letter lacked the essential marriage certificate required for substantiating such allegations. In an official statement, Katukiro (Prime Minister) Dr. Joseph Muvawala deemed the information in the letter as false and defamatory.

“For the record, His Majesty William Gabula Nadiope IV has never been married to anyone under the known forms of marriage in Uganda and elsewhere, has never sired any children, is not a British citizen, and the purported Alison Anne Gabula is unknown to him and has never been married to His Majesty,” clarified Dr. Muvawala.

He further emphasized that there is no documented evidence of the Kyabazinga’s marriage in the United Kingdom or anywhere else globally, and the content of the letter is currently under police investigation. Dr. Muvawala disclosed that the kingdom has reported the matter to law enforcement and security agencies, leading to the arrest of individuals aiding in investigations.

To counter the alleged smear campaign, the Busoga Kingdom has taken a proactive stance, instructing lawyers to initiate both civil and criminal proceedings against those involved in the scheme to tarnish the Kyabazinga’s reputation. Dr. Muvawala urged the public to disregard these baseless allegations and affirmed that the Busoga royal wedding, scheduled for November 18, will proceed as planned.
