Last week, Buganda Princess Katrina Ssangalyambogo while appearing on a local TV station failed to speak proper Luganda which act left a number of social media users wondering how a whole princess can fail to converse in her native language.
Though she was highly criticized, some empathetic people like Mukono Municipality MP Betty Nambooze came out for the princess’ rescue citing that she shouldn’t be criticized rather should be protected and encouraged since she is still a child.
Who is Ssangalyambogo?
Born in London, United Kingdom in 2001, Princess Ssangalyambogo, 17 is the daughter of His Majesty Ronald Muwenda Mutebi and Her Royal Highness Sylvia Nagginda.
Upon her birth, Posta Uganda launched three new stamps honoring and commemorating the birth of the Princess.
The Princess participates in various sports. In 2009, she won 3 golden medals and a bronze in the National Junior Swimming Championship that were hosted in Nairobi, Kenya.
Apart from swimming as her hobby, Ssangalyambogo also enjoys ballet dancing.
She occasionally accompanies Her Royal Highness to her public engagements on behalf of Ssaabasajja Kabaka, her Royal Patronages and Charities.
At a young age, the Princess carries out official and royal engagements.
