Lwomwa is the title given to the head of Buganda’s Ndiga clan, the reigning head Eng Daniel Bbosa had his life cut short last Sunday by assailants who showered bullets on his car targeting him alone and died on spot.

The incident happened in Lungujja Lubaga division as the clan head was coming from clan weekend clan duties around the city. Three assailants moving on a motorcycle rained bullets on him and sped off.


Unlike the previous shootings, boda boda riders gained the strength and pursued the killers and were able to disempower and apprehend two of whom one was beaten and died instantly while the other is still caged at Mulago hospital receiving treatment on handcuffs. The third assailant escaped.

To the surprise of many, police identified the two as Enock Sserunkuma (the one was killed by the mob) and Noah Luggya who is still in hospital. The two had names belonging to the clan the deceased was heading meaning they killed their own clan head by virtue of their names.

The Ndiga clan has since identified the heir to the throne and have picked Eria Luggya Lwasi Buzaabo as their new clan head who was serving as the clan’s premier at the time his predecessor was gunned down. He was presented to the Katikiro Charles Peter Mayiga who will later present him to the Kabaka Ronald Muwenda Mutebi.

Police has since apprehended another suspect identified as Milly Naluwenda also a resident of Lungujja, she is a clerk to the Buganda Kingdom traditional court commonly known as Kisekwa, it’s said that call logs indicated that Naluwenda was in constant communication with the assailants that day.

After the funeral service held at Namirembe Christian Fellowship Church in Mengo yesterday, the slain Ndiga Clan head is being laid to rest today at Mbaale, Mawokota in Mpigi district. Ndiga Clan is one of the 52 recognized and documented clans of Buganda.

Unlike the usual and known burial norms, Lwomwa is not buried in a coffin or casket, his body has been put in over 200 backcloths believed to preserve the body for an extended period and his grave is dug not less than 15feet deep. He is also buried after sunset.

He was however in a casket yesterday at Namirembe Christian Fellowship Church in Mengo, sources say the casket is just hired and after it was returned as the deceased is now rolled in hundreds of backcloths not the coffin.

Many leaders from the central government, Mengo establishment and from political parties are present at the burial ceremony. Notable faces include leader of opposition in parliament Joel Ssenyonyi, NUP Rrincipal Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu, several clan heads, Deputy Premier Prof Hajj Twaha Kigongo Kaawaase among others.

  1. Mpuuga, Ssegona and Peter Matings are presidential material. Being led by immature, inept populists is an abuse to their exposure and acumen.

    Buganda deserves better. Start a new, different party with those as leaders.

    About NUP, it is rapidly dissolving.
