THE Great Kingdom of Buganda thrives on the principal of none segregation set by Nyatworo, the daughter of Labongo of the Gipil and Labongo fame.
Nyatworo is the mother of Rukidi Mpuga and Kato Kimera the first Bito Kings of Bunyoro and Buganda respectively.
GENESIS OF BUGANDA ON THE PRINCIPAL OF NONE SEGREGATION
Prince Kyomya from Bunyoro was exiled in the present day Acholi during the time of the great twins Gipil and Labongo. He fell in love with Nyatworo the daughter of Labongo. They had twins Rukidi Mpuuga and Kato Kimera under a Bito tree to become the first Bito soon after Kyomya lost his life.
After the death of Kyomya , Bunyoro lost the last Musiita King during a famine; a characteristic of Basiita. When it was announced that the king had been born the Banyoro were not interested in a king yet they were hungry.
The Acholi gathered millet escorting their son Rukidi Mpuga to become the first Bito King of Bunyoro.
During the regime of Rukidi Mpuga, the mother Nyatworo noticed the following; The sibling rivalry between Rukidi Mpuuga and Kato Kimera
The segregation against herself and many a person who had escorted the young King because of the height and darker skin.
Nyatworo advised Rukidi Mpuga to give the subcounty of Muwawa to the brother Kato Kimera which he did.
Nyatworo moved to Muwawa with Kato Kimera and was the defacto leader despite the fact that the son was the King.
She ruled Muwawa on the principle of none segregation creating relative peace. Because of the peace and stability in Muwawa, groups of people started to migrate in bundles (Buganda) thus the saying Muwawa the land where the Buganda live in peace. Yes that is where the name comes from.
You will note that of the fifty two clans in Buganda, Nyatworo and Kato Kimera only found three clans of Bushmen.
The 1. Mbwa
The rest of the clans are immigrants for example:
Nsenene from Ankole and Ngabi from Bunyoro
The above clans where actually from the Royal families of Ankole and Bunyoro that lost the succession wars in the respective Kingdoms.
