In a display of unwavering commitment to their kingdom, the First Deputy Prime Minister, Rebecca Alitwala Kadaga, and the Busoga Kingdom Tourism Minister, Hellen Namutamba, have emerged as key figures in addressing allegations surrounding His Royal Highness William Gabula Nadiope IV, the Kyabazinga of Busoga Kingdom.
The claim suggests that the Kyabazinga had entered into a legal marriage with London-based Alison Anna Gabula, with whom he allegedly shares two children.
Sources from Kyabazinga’s Igenge palace disclosed that Kadaga, Namutamba, and a select group of trusted Busoga elders convened a secret meeting to discuss the matter and its potential impact on the kingdom’s public image. Kadaga, a personal friend to the Kyabazinga, took the lead in urging the King to share the truth so that appropriate measures could be taken to counter Anna’s claims.
To their surprise, Kyabazinga Gabula, wearing a stern expression, left the meeting abruptly without uttering a word when the allegations were brought up. Since the news broke, the Kyabazinga has maintained a stance of not discussing the issue with anyone, even rejecting a phone call from Archbishop Dr. Steven Kazimba Mugalu, who had received a petition from Alison’s lawyers warning against presiding over the Royal wedding.
It is rumored that President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni advised the Archbishop to proceed with the Royal wedding, a decision that reportedly irked the Kyabazinga. Recognizing their King’s displeasure, Kadaga and Namutamba decided to reach out to Alison directly to address the matter.
Kadaga contacted Alison, advising her to refrain from discussing her issues with the King in the media. She assured Alison that the kingdom was prepared to take responsibility for the children if they were proven to be Gabula’s offspring. Shockingly, Alison recorded their conversation and circulated it on social media.
In response, a furious Kadaga dispatched Namutamba to London to meet with Alison. However, upon reaching London, Namutamba found Alison had switched off her known phone numbers. Despite this setback, Namutamba spent her time in London shopping for the upcoming wedding.
The Busoga Kingdom Prime Minister, Joseph Muvawala, dismissed the allegations of a legal marriage between the Kyabazinga and Alison.
He asserted that the kingdom had assembled a legal team to take action against Alison and her lawyers, who had warned against the Church’s involvement in the Royal wedding.
Alison’s lawyers claim their client celebrated a Civil Marriage with the Kyabazinga in December 2016, producing a marriage certificate and asserting that the couple has two children residing in London.
In a surprising twist, it has been exclusively reported that Alison is pregnant, though the father’s identity remains unconfirmed. Allegedly, Alison and the father had plans to travel to Iran for a farming benchmarking exercise earlier in the year.
Amidst these developments, Alison is reportedly in Uganda, gathering evidence with her legal team to support bigamy and child negligence cases against Kyabazinga Gabula. The situation remains fluid, with the Busoga Kingdom at the center of a complex web of personal and legal disputes.
