On today’s afternoon, 5th/june/2020/, fire gutted one of the three deity houses (Ennyumba z’abalongo) at the Kasubi Royal Tombs. Fortunately, a team of workers and residents at the Kasubi Royal Tombs using the fire extinguishers within Kasubi managed to put out the fire with assistance from the Uganda Police Fire Brigade who arrived within a short period of time after the fire broke out.

It is however said, from trusted sources, that the deity (Abalongo) were protected during this period and none was destroyed during this fire outbreak.

This particular house is hundreds of meters away from Muzibu-Azaala-Mpanga, the main mausoleum at Kasubi Royal Tombs that is being reconstructed following the March 2010 fire outbreak. The media were today allowed to access part of the Kasubi Royal Tombs to ascertain the extent of the fire and accordingly inform the Buganda people.

The police has embarked on investigations to establish the cause of the fire outbreak and the Buganda executives have promised to communicate as soon as they get reports from them (police).
