Former Presidential candidate Maureen Kyalya Waluube has lashed out at people despising Basoga saying all Ugandans are Basoga. Reacting to the nude protest of Dr Stella Nyanzi, a senior research officer at Makerere University over eviction from her office, Maureen said those are despising her saying she is a mosugo are wrong. “Dr. Stella Nyanzi Musoga or not, so what when you are all Basoga”. Below is her statement regarding the issue;
“DR STELLA NYANZI: MUSOGA or NOT; SO WHAT WHEN YOU ARE ALL BASOGA!!
Does it really matter whether or not Dr Nyanzi is a Musoga. And who is not a Musoga in Uganda if I may ask??? Why don’t you try studying a little bit of your own UGANDAN history before you judge people based on Western standards? BAGANDA claim Kintu was a Muganda, the First Ugandan we all believe was our father. Let a Muganda show me his Grave. Kintu (Isebantu) which means Father of the entire humanities, was, is and will always be from the Busoga Island. He moved from the Northern Parts of Busoga Southwards, died at Bunya and his Grave/ Shrine is at Buswikila in Bunhya. If you can buy tickets to tour London, surely you can board a border to go and understand your history. My point all UGANDANS are children of Busoga and all humanity are children of Busoga. Kimeera who started Buganda and his young brother Kato of Bunyoro are brothers to the Kitimbo, Kisiiki, Kigulu, Kisambira, Kisozi, Kiira, Kintu all sons or grandsons of the Original Kintu. So get to grips. If Basoga are stupid then you are all STUPID. If Basoga are MAD so are you all. Otherwise the Source of the Nile would be in Buganda not Busoga Island if BAGANDA were our fore fathers. You are all Basoga, hang if you must, research if you must, ATTACK if you are stupid but all of you are our children. Isebantu and Inhebantu. Kintu and Nambi or Adam and Eve or Ibrahim and Sarah all start and are in Busoga. Deal with it. YOU ARE ALL BASOGA”
