This place was ruled by strongmen for generations but it became a structured kingdom with the arrival of Kintu. He is the one who established an administrative structure from the Kabaka to the Mukopi (King to Commoner). This was the alien administration introduced then. It was referred to as Kintu because the people who were introducing did not have any Ubuntu as the natives of the place. Kintu in the local language literary means "some thing". So it meant something had brought an administration NOT some one.
There was so much tyranny going on at the time of his arrival. People who were under Bemba Musota were restless and unhappy with his tyrannical ways. Bemba was a feared man and rumour had it that he was half human, half snake. This myth caused so much fear that no one imagined he could be defeated. When rumour circulated that a fearless warrior had come to fight Bemba, people collected in great numbers rallying behind Kintu to come and topple a man who had made himself invincible. (It is important to note strongly in this note that the word Kintu literary means "something". It was used in the antiquities to denote any one who did not Ubuntu as contrary to the native Bantu people. In this context, it was the "Bintu" (plural of Kintu), or say the ailens that were fighting to overthrow the native rulers and implement their alien administration.)
That is for myth but history strongly suggests that Kintu came to Buganda with an army, mobilised the locals and assassinated the existing leader Bemba Musota through a mercenary called Nfudu and organized Buganda to be the most powerful kingdom in most of Africa.
When the wilderness weeps to preserve mankind amidst his chaos and confusion, man takes no heed to listen partly because there is so much at stake and partly because he does not discern the cry of the wild. When the bees buzz pollinating plants; he does not see beyond honey. When the forests form a splendid lush canopy on mountain tops and the country side; he does not see beyond timber. When birds of the air chirp and display their colourful plumage; his ears hear no music and his eyes see no beauty but possible trade of their feathers, eggs and meat and so goes other species of value in the market place. *The dodo is extinct because the British marksmen were perfecting their shooting targets. The rhino is extinct in Uganda because of its precious horn. The crested crane is now endangered because its habitat has been enchroached upon by man. In the process of displacing the crane, the water filters have been destroyed and all the filth now ends in the great water bodies unchecked. These water bodies incidentally supply man with the very water he consumes.
The over-hyped suits that opinion leaders of this country revere can never give us identity leave alone its chocking inconvenience. *Mahatma Gandhi could never have motivated the fabric industry of India if he hadn’t publicly denounced the suit and its tie to replace it with the Indian attire. Why as African people do we discern the intricate issues and fail the basic? The new times are calling for going back to check out the roots and see how deep the tap root went to ascertain the future of this gigantic tree that dominates the ground.
