President Yoweri Museveni has appointed the Busoga King William Wilberforce Gabula IV as the ambassador special duties.
His majesty Gabula was raised by his maternal grandmother in Jinja. He started his Primary Education at Victoria Nile then Lohana Academy from 1995 until 2001. In 2002, he entered Busoga College Mwiri for his O-Level studies until 2005. He continued with his A-Level education, at Kyambogo College School, graduating in 2007.
He was admitted to Kyambogo University, graduating in 2011, with the degree of Bachelor of Arts in Economics. At the time of his coronation, he was employed as an Economist in the Uganda Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources. He then went for further studies in the United Kingdom and graduated in 2015 with a First Class master’s degree in Business Administration (Management) at Coventry University.
William Wilberforce Kadhumbula Gabula Nadiope IV is the reigning Kyabazinga of Busoga, a constitutional kingdom in modern-day Uganda. He is the fourth Kyabazinga of Busoga.
It is a rather surprising move by the president who has appointed a culture leader as an ambassador for the first time.
