Princess Agnes Bagaya was the only surviving daughter of the late King of Tooro, David Kasagama Kyebambe III. She was also the youngest sister of Sir George David Matthew Kamurasi Rukidi III, the 11th Omukama of Tooro. Her death now leaves Prince Switzer Kaijamurubi, aged 84, the only surviving son of Omukama Kyebambe.
Fred Mugenyi, the secretary of the kingdom parliament demands in a letter dated November 12th 2013 that Kamurasi, a paternal uncle to Komuntale should speak to the kingdom parliament about the failed marriage of the Batebe (Kingâ€™s elder sister).
This morning more than 15 members of the Tooro Local Parliament bought more than 200 copies of the Red Pepper and set them ablaze in the centre of Fort Portal town, as they sang the Tooro Kingdom anthem.
King Oyo Nyimba Kabamba Iguru did not attend his sisterâ€™s introduction ceremony in accordance with Tooro cultural norms. According to Isaac Rabwoni, an uncle to King Oyo, since the King is the leader of all clans in Tooro Kingdom, he isnâ€™t supposed to discriminate and attend a function of the Babiito.
With three days left, the Kingdom Palace, the Karuziika in Fort Portal town, the venue for the wedding reception, has been given a facelift. The ritual houses, Obuju bwâ€™emirwa, at the palace have been renovated and the royal platform, Omusanga, where the King sits during functions has also been painted and tiles fixed.
In the past, whenever a sister or daughter of the King was going to get married, she would be prepared for marriage by her aunties or grandmothers. They used to be taken to Ngezi in Mwenge County, in the present day Kyenjojo district, at the Batebeâ€™s palace or at the Kingâ€™s palace.
