The Busoga Kingdom council of chiefs have overthrown the Kyabazinga Wilberforce Gabula Nadiope Overthrown this follows a decision from the Eleven members that sit on the council of Obwa Kyabazinga Bwa Busoga.
The notice states, “WHEREAS the Chiefs Royal Council in accordance with Article 8 Clause 2 (f) of the Constitution of Obwa Kyabazinga Bwa Busoga unanimously with a quorum of eight (8) Hereditary Royal Saza Chiefs moved a vote of no confidence in HRH William Wilberforce Gabula Nadiope IV, thereby removing him as the Isebantu Kyabazinga of Obwa in Kyabazinga Bwa Busoga.”
The notice adds that under Article 8 Clause 6 of the Constitution of Obwa Kyabazinga Bwa Busoga, the chief’s royal council retains the running affairs of the Obwa Kyabazinga Bwa Busoga.
It’s from the above background that the Royal Council replaced Nadiope with Columbus; however some Busoga Kingdom royalists regarded this as a war between the sitting speaker of parliament and the former speaker Rebecca Kadaga.
Others alleged that it’s a ‘Kiro Kitwala Omunaku’. In which they can not respect and believe in and that they are working normally at the palace there’s nothing like a change of King.
Edward Columbus Wambuzi is the son of the fallen Kyabazinga Wako Muloki Wambuzi and some Basoga claim that he can not rule because he doesn’t belong to any of the five princesses of Bunyoro.
His father was reinstalled by the 1995 constitution that restored monarchies in Uganda in Article 246(1) of the constitution of Uganda. On 11 February 1996, Henry Wako Muloki was reinstated as Kyabazinga Isebantu of Busoga. He served until 1 September 2008, when he died of esophageal cancer at the Mulago National Referral Hospital in Kampala at age 87.
