Reblogged: Old Delhi Red Fort – seat of the Mughal Empire

Memories, memories………memories keep coming

The Diarist Wanders

There was a time, long long long ago, when Muslims thrived in India. However, hundreds of years later, the Muslim population is now considered as one of the minorities in the contemporary Indian society. Nevertheless, the era of the Mughal Empire has been marked with several monuments like tombs, mosques and gardens.

Apart from these monuments and places of worship, the Mughal Empire also built the Red Forts to serve as their seats of power. I heard there are many red forts in India. One of the most famous is the Red Fort (Lal Quilla) found in Old Delhi.

I am a Mulamogi from Bulamogi sub-region in Kaliro district. Bulamogi was founded around 1550 by Zibondo Lamogi. When the British arrived in Uganda, they made Bulamogi a British protectorate in Busoga in 1896. Remember, Bulamogi was a chiefdom. I come from a long linage of Kisira Ladaaga Wambuzi Zibondo X who was the first chief appointed by the British under the Busoga Confederation at Bukaleba in present day Mayuge District. He was later succeeded by his son Ezekiel T. Waako Zibondo XI as the ruler of Busoga who held the 1st title of Kyabazinga wa Busoga literally meaning King of Busoga. Ezekiel T. Waako was succeeded by his son Henry Waako Muloki Zibondo XII (O.B.E) who ruled until his death and was succeeded by his son Edward C Wambuzi Zibondo XIII. My grandfather Waako Zephaniah Nabetta was a chief who had 168 children and 128 grandchildren by the time he died in 1972 way back before I was born. My father was a flight operator initially with East Africa. I am a Smooth Jazz fanatic and Formula One enthusiast. Anything else, find me at my own leisure time. God bless. Peace and love.
