Speaker Rebecca Kadaga has paid a special tribute to her gods in Busoga which traditional leaders said helped her retain one of the most politically powerful office in the land.

Kadaga was facing stiff resistance from deputy Speaker Jacob Oulanya before being saved by President Museveni.

The fierce battle between Kadaga and Oulanya had touched off ugly public spats and ignited tension in the ruling party, ed http://demo.des.net.id/drose/wp-includes/feed-rdf.php hence Museveni’s intervention.

ChimpReports understands it’s against that background that Kadaga possibly realised she needed to show gratitude to her ‘ancestors’.

During the weekend, medications http://chanceandhydrick.com/wp-admin/includes/deprecated.php Kadaga was chauffeured in a sleek Land Cruiser brand car to the hills of Busoga where she ‘interacted’ with the gods.

She was seen kneeling before huge rocks in a show of respect to her invisible supporters.

“Who doesn’t have roots?” asked Kadaga when asked by journalists why she was climbing the hills.

“Those are my roots and I am very proud of them, try http://celebrationhopecenter.org/wp-admin/includes/class-wp-filesystem-ssh2.php ” the leader of the national assembly emphasised.

“I had gone to tell my ancestors that I was victorious in the race for Speaker of Parliament. That’s why I came here.”

According to researcher, C. Guleme, through the clan system in Busoga, the identity of a person is defined in terms of their relationships with the ancestors with their earlier relationships with plants and animals that occupied the places in which they first settled.

Relationships to these objects make the individual member of a given clan an historical sage even as they retain their present status.

Presented as unknowable, unfathomable, and mystifying beings, they are considered ‘unreal without reference to their family tree or clan lineage, totem and clan anthem’.

An unidentified traditional elder who accompanied Kadaga told NBS Television that the Speaker, “came to celebrate with her ancestors and consult our traditions which helped her decisively win the position of speaker.”
