  But many regarded Mwanga as a more lenient king than Mutesa whose other name “Mukaabya” means the one who makes people cry. For example, Mukaabya put hundreds of Muslim converts to death for just refusing to eat his meat because the cattle from which the meat was obtained were not slaughtered by a Muslim.   One notable person they often cite is King Mwanga ll of Buganda. Mwanga was the 31st and last monarch of Buganda, within now modern-day Uganda. He ruled as Kabaka (king) from until and from until before British rule. Mwanga was known to be relentless.

  After Hannington’s execution, one of King Mwanga’s closest friends, the chief steward and leader of the king’s pages, became the first Roman Catholic convert to be martyred.   He arrived in Africa in November , where he spent nearly 14 years, never once returning to his native Scotland. The book describes Mackay’s friendship with King Mutesa I of Buganda (reigned, –84) and his difficulties under Mutesa’s successor, King Mwanga, who fiercely persecuted the early Ugandan church.

  The most authoritative textual accounts of the ‘Uganda martyrs’ pivot around the commission of ‘sodomy’ by Kabaka (king) Mwanga with his pages in the s. This chapter asks how commemoration of the martyrdoms coexists with the claim that same-sex intimacy is alien to Ugandan culture. The chapter begins with a methodological discussion of the distinction and overlap between . King Mwanga II felt that the traditional powers and authority his predecessors had enjoyed were dwindling, and had disintegrated under the influence of the missionaries and their converts. So in October of King Mwanga II had the Anglican missionary Bishop James Hannington of England killed.

King Mwanga was 19 years old and a raging sodomite. The Ugandan martyrs were young Christian men, the youngest being 14 years old and some of them actually OLDER than King Mwanga himself, the eldest being 25 years old, who were pages in Mwanga’s court that categorically refused to comply with his demand that they engage in homosexual sex with him or anyone else, including his.

Mwanga, the last independent kabaka (ruler) of the African kingdom of Buganda, whose short but turbulent reign included a massacre of Ganda Christians, spasmodic civil war, and finally an unsuccessful uprising against the British in which Mwanga had only limited support from his own people.

The publication of Professor Samwiri Lwanga Lunyiigo’s (of the Makerere Institute of Social Research) book titled Mwanga II: Resistance to Imposition of British Colonial Rule in Bugandaturned more than a century’s worth of Euro-centric “scholarship” on its head.

The letter, purported to be from the King of the Buganda, Muteesa I, was an open invitation for missionaries of all Christian denominations to his kingdom. Its authenticity is disputed but it did not stop several missions from sending representatives to the Ugandan monarchy.
