Beyond the battlefield, Omukama Chwa II Kabalega was a visionary statesman, fostering diplomatic ties with neighboring realms and promoting trade, both locally and internationally, thus enriching the economic fabric of Bunyoro-Kitara.

Today, under the esteemed reign of Omukama Rukirabasaija Agutamba Solomon Gafabusa Iguru I, the legacy of Omukama Chwa II Kabalega continues to flourish. Through the establishment of The Most Honorable Order of Omukama Chwa II Kabalega and the tireless efforts of the Association of the Representatives of the Kingdom of Bunyoro-Kitara, his memory is enshrined, and his values are upheld.

Omukama Rukirabasaija Agutamba Solomon Gafabusa Iguru I’s commitment to promoting culture, education, health, agriculture, and tourism echoes the visionary pursuits of his esteemed predecessor. Embracing principles of good governance, institutionalization, and fostering peace and tolerance, he ensures the kingdom thrives in an environment of inclusiveness and patriotism.

Moreover, his campaigns against tobacco growing and the fight against HIV/AIDS, coupled with advocacy for reproductive health among the Banyoro, exemplify a monarch deeply invested in the well-being of his people, both in the present and for generations to come.

As we commemorate Bunyoro-Kitara Kingdom Hero Day, let us rekindle the flame of Omukama Chwa II Kabalega’s legacy, drawing inspiration from his courage, wisdom, and unyielding dedication to the prosperity of his realm.
