The queen of Buganda, Nnaabagereka Sylvia Nagginda has disclosed that she welcomed twins with Kabaka Ronald Muwenda Mutebi II in 2020.

In her soon to be-released autobiography titled, “The Nnaabagereka of Buganda Queen Sylvia Nagginda Luswata,” The queen disclosed that on December 6, 2010 she was blessed with two more girls; Jade Nakato and Jasmine Babirye born in Kampala.

These revelations are made in the tell-all book set to be released on March 23.

The Kabaka and Nagginda welcomed their first child together, Katrina-Sarah Ssangalyambogo on July 4, 2001 in London.

Since then, people have been asking them selves as to why she is not producing another child.

The Buganda Kingdom’s royal establishment, as it has been known to do in the past, kept this closely to their chests until the recent revelations in the Queen’s own narration in the upcoming autobiography.

On Page 205 of the autobiography, Nagginda writes, “On December 6, 2010, I was blessed with two more girls Jade Nakato and Jasmine Babirye born in Kampala… They’re two amazing kids who are mostly happy and are passionate about people which, at their age, I find astounding…”

The children are mentioned more than once in the book by the Queen with references to them as, “my daughters, Ssanga, Jade and Jasmine.”

In the book, true to this high level of secrecy and confidentiality that seems to be tradition in the royal household, many details—some little and some rather prominent—come out in the Queen’s story.

On May 24, 1966, former President Milton Obote and his troops overran the Kabaka’s palace in Mengo in a culmination of tensions that had been building following the suspension of the 1962 constitution. In the Mengo siege, Ssekabaka Edward Fredrick Muteesa II, Kabaka Mutebi’s father was driven out of his kingdom and later died in exile in 1969.

Kabaka Ronald Muwenda Mutebi returned to Uganda as a crown prince and on July 31, 1993 was crowned the 36th Kabaka of Buganda at Buddo, Naggalabi in Wakiso District.

The Kabaka of Buganda Ronald Muwenda Mutebi and Sylvia Nagginda Luswata were wedded at Namirembe Cathedral on August 27, 1999 in arguably the biggest society wedding the country has seen in a long time.

The Kabaka and Nnaabagereka Nagginda have a ‘blended family’ as she calls it, and the couple have raised their children together since their marriage. The couple’s first child together, Katrina-Sarah Ssangalyambogo, was born on July 4, 2001 in London.

She is followed by the now revealed twins, Jade and Jasmine, born nine years later in Kampala, as narrated by the Queen in her autobiography. The couple’s other children are Prince Junju Kiweewa, Princess Joan Nassolo, Princess Victoria Nkinzi and Prince Richard Semakokiro, born in 2009.

The book, whose publish date is 2023  and is set to be launched on March 23, chronicles the life of the Nnaabagereka Sylvia Nagginda Luswata from birth to her royal marriage, starting a family and her royal duties, as well as other national functions.

Sylvia Nagginda Luswata was born on November 9, 1962 to John Mulumba Luswata and Rebecca Musoke, both young students in the United Kingdom then.

Nagginda attended Lake Victoria Primary School in Entebbe, Gayaza Junior School and later Wanyange Girls School up to Senior Four. After her O’Levels, she left the country to join her mother in the United States in 1981.

Nagginda subsequently studied journalism and public relations at New York University. She also graduated with a Master’s degree from New York Institute of Technology and built a career in public relations and consulting before she began to consider a move back home.
