Omukama Kabalega of Bunyoro Kingdom,
Chwa II Kabalega (18 June 1853 – 6 April 1923), was the ruler or Omukama of Bunyoro in Uganda from 1870 to 1899, and a celebrated hero who fought against British colonialism.

When he was crowned king, he set out to develop his new empire via trade and especially the Kibiro Saltworks.

He defeated the British and the Ottomans who sought to colonise his empire.

On 1 January 1894, the British declared war on Bunyoro. At the height of the British offensive on his empire, Kabalega went into hiding in Acholi under the protection of Chief Awich Abok of Payira. It's from there that he consistently led his rebellion dubbed Nyangire that proved a thorn on the colonial skin.

He was born on June 18, 1853 to Omukama Kamurasi Mirundi Rukanama rwa Kanembe KYEBAMBE IV of Bunyoro-Kitara. His mother was called Kanyange Nyamutahingurwa Omunyonzakati Abwooli. Kabalega ascended the throne in 1869 at the age of 16 as the 23rd Omukama from the Babiito Dynasty following the death of his father.

Kabalega led a historic revival of the kingdom and registered several victories in reclaiming lost territories, increased food production, cattle keeping and trade given that Bunyoro was the centre of iron smelting at that time, and had the Kibiro Salt Works.

Facing our past , rethinking future museums, is an exhibition that interrogates the existing narratives and conventional museum practices.The exhibition allows visitors to have an experiential tour which has triggered conversations between the visitors and the curators .Hence, inviting communities to rethink, rewrite and co curate together with the museum.
This has been a one- year process by the Uganda Museum study group through partnership with the Museumfutures Africa Project and support from the Goethe Institute .

With the development of digital technologies, it is important for museum staff to adopt the current trends in digitalization. As part of our strategy to expand the Ugandan museums technological infrastructure, this week curators, guides, site attendants and students were trained on new communicative approaches of using the digital platforms in museums.
The participants enhanced their skills on how to communicate using zoom, working online and offer virtual tours, creating manual and digital catalogues. They also explored the different ways to manage images and share information on the web. Thanks and appreciation to the French Embassy in Uganda for support.

Calabash “Awal” in Acholi

A hard-shell fruit from the ornamental gourd plant and comes in different shapes and sizes. When ready, the seeds are gouged out, it is dried and used for several purposes various communities .Calabashes are used for food storage, as a musical instrument, kitchen utensil, and administering herbal medicine.

The Acholi people of northern Uganda use this particular calabash “awal” with wart-like growths in the traditional Justice process called “Mato oput”. Mato oput is literally translated as drinking bitter root in the Acholi language. It is also a ceremony were the conflicting sides take pounded biiter plant from the calabash and promise not to cause any harm. Hence promoting forgiveness and reconciliation and not revenge

50 YEARS THINGS FALL APART // EXHIBITION OPENING THIS WEDNESDAY @ugandamuseums
