Which districts?[edit]

The article should state which modern-day districts of Uganda comprise the Buganda region. Badagnani 03:36, 3 December 2006 (UTC)

Clan names[edit]

Are the original six clan names really: Boom boom Bang bang dip dip nta, or has someone been playing with the edit features? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 88.105.119.118 (talk) 06:47, 13 February 2008 (UTC)

Social structure[edit]

Does the information provided apply to the Baganda only, or to the other ethnic groups as well? And which are these other groups?--193.136.189.1 (talk) 11:30, 5 September 2008 (UTC)

Inconsistency[edit]

When I opened this page I noticed a paragraph that didn't make sense: "In September 2009, Kayunga declared its secession from the traditional Kingdom of Buganda. The King attempted to visit but was banned by the Ugandan government, provoking riots in Kampala. [3] Kayunga district has not declared its secession from the traditional kingdom of Buganda. "The first sentence seems to completely contradict the second sentence. If anyone knows which one of those is correct, please clarify 199.46.198.230 (talk) 21:33, 30 September 2009 (UTC)

Hashed/hatched[edit]

Changed "hashed" to "hatched" in the map caption. I believe that is what the original author meant. I can find no definition for the word "hashed" which would make sense. On the other hand, "hatched" means to shade with stripes. Cheers. A1 Aardvark (talk) 20:15, 18 March 2010 (UTC)

Requested move[edit]

The following discussion is an archived discussion of the proposal. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. No further edits should be made to this section.

The result of the proposal was moved per clear consensus. --RegentsPark (talk) 02:58, 25 July 2010 (UTC)

Buganda kingdomBuganda — While formally known as the Buganda Kingdom, the Ugandan kingdom is normally referred to simply as "Buganda". See various Bugandan and Ugandan newspapers (Buganda Post, Observer, Daily Monitor), international press (Guardian, Telegraph, Washington Post), UNESCO, and most books on the subject (Buganda in Modern History, The Mind of Buganda, Myth, Ritual, and Kingship in Buganda).

  • Support per nom. It was recently moved[1] without discussion and "kingdom" an unnecessarily appendage since Buganda already redirects here anyway. I also propose other Ugandan monarchies moved without discussion be returned to their original locations including: — AjaxSmack 03:24, 18 July 2010 (UTC)
  • Comment I have moved Ankole kingdom back to Ankole and Bunyoro kingdom back to Bunyoro. Busoga kingdom will require an administrator. Apparently the editor who made the moves thinks that the Manual of Style dictates that we should have articles titled Belgium kingdom and Denmark kingdom. It doesn't, and thankfully we don't. Skinsmoke (talk) 06:22, 18 July 2010 (UTC)
  • Support. In the absence of evidence that "Buganda kingdom" is correct and commonly used, the comment above from Skinsmoke says it perfectly. Best wishes DBaK (talk) 11:40, 20 July 2010 (UTC)
  • Probably also worth noting that the Constitution of Buganda refers to the territory simply as "Buganda", and does not use the word "kingdom" once within the document. City of Destruction (The Celestial City) 23:48, 21 July 2010 (UTC)
  • Support - Titles should not be needlessly burdened with clarifications. Is there another Buganda that needs to be differentiated from this Buganda? Most likely not. Green Giant (talk) 18:56, 24 July 2010 (UTC)

Subnational kingdom?[edit]

The article mentions that Buganda is a subnational kingdom. Is that similar to an autonomous region of some countries? Illegitimate Barrister (talk) 02:28, 6 April 2013 (UTC)
