The battle between Buganda and Bunyoro Kingdoms, over the ownership of Buluuli county may rage on as the Barulii expedite their quest for recognition under Bunyoro Kingdom.
The Baluuli have officially written to Bunyoro Kingdom Authorities seeking to be considered as their own.
Several elders from Buluuli led by the cultural leader Ssabaruuli Ssalongo Mwogezi, recently paid homage to the Omukama of Bunyoro requesting that Buluuli county be accepted back to Bunyoro, where it belonged before it was taken over by Buganda during colonial days.
Ssabaruuli argued that the Baluuli, who occupy the present day Nakasongola district are in high spirits to officially return to Bunyoro.
Emmanuel Alibankooha, the kingdom's Prime minister confirms the development. He says the Omukama of Bunyoro has unreservedly acknowledged their demands and plans to visit Buruuli at the begging of next year.
Early this month, Ronald Muwenda Mutebi, the Kabaka of Buganda who considers Buluuli as one of his chiefdoms was blocked from visiting the area. The Kabaka planned to celebrate Independence Day there, but government intervened at the last hour following threats by Baluuli to fight.
Alibankooha says there are historical facts to prove that Buluuli county belongs to Bunyoro. He says if people there don't want to be under the Kabaka's control, they should be left to go the way they want.
Solomon Gafabusa officiated at the installation of the SSabaluuli, an occasion that was boycotted by Buganda. He performed cultural rituals. The Omukama left there several royal regalia from Bunyoro, a guesture the Bunyoro prime minister says Partly shows that Buluuli belongs to Bunyoro.
