  1. I just discovered that Sir Daudi Chwa was a Salongo and who is the twin of Prince Alfred Joseph Kato Kiggala. Thank you for the detailed information. I would also like to get a copy of The Discretion of my Kingdom by Sir Edward Frederick Muteesa II, where can I buy or borrow it to read because I am proud to be Omuky. o’Muganda.
