Brief profile of King Kabalega

King Cwa 11 Kabalega born on 18 June 1953 ruled Bunyoro-Kitara from 1869 to 1899.  King Kabalega had great dreams and visions for his Kingdom. He expanded the Kingdom using his well trained army of “Abarusuura” (soldiers). He mounted a bloody resistance against the powers of colonialization led by British for five years from 1 January 1869 until 9th April 1899 when he was short and captured by the British. He was exiled on the Seychelles Islands until he was granted permission to return to his kingdom in 1923. He however died in Jinja on 6 April 1923 shortly before he reached his kingdom. With King Kabalega gone, the Bunyoro-Kitara Kingdom was greatly weakened military, socially and economically and colonial persecution of the kingdom continued unabated.
