  1. Dear Khadija,
    ‘Naalinya’ is not a name, but rather a title in our family. There are however some other tribes in uganda, and probably Kenya that use this as a name. We are however happy to hear that you consider our kingdom a great one.

  2. Am proud of all this naalinyas but very disappointed to know that am from a royal family but my father just decided not to recognize that and left us to be brought up by my mother who is a Kenyan and now we are in Kenya not knowing our roots its very very bad fathers take up your positions in the society. This is a great kingdom
