Interested members and fellow Baganda,
Here below are more pictures of our first president and beloved Ssekabaka’s life for our archives.
Brief Life Pictorial of Sir Edward II
This is when he wrote an essay about ‘What is Love?’ that won his teacher’s heart. In brief he wrote:
Love begins in our homes, when we love each other. It then grows to our neighbours, from there it extends to the whole village, sub-county, county, country and lastly the whole world. That is what is called True Love.
This essay is still closely kept up to this day, in Sir Edward’s own handwriting.
For the benefit of our young generation who have been following our debates on Obote I regime and his government yet they may not even know how the man and his cabinet ministers looked like, and also for our historical memories, here below is Obote’s cabinet before he was kicked out by Maj. Gen. Idi Amin on 25th January 1971.
