|Tooro Kingdom by Kenyans247(1): Thu 14, May, 2020 07:37am|
Tooro is one of the five traditional kingdoms located within the borders of Uganda. The current Omukama of Toro is King Rukidi IV. The people native to the kingdom are the Batooro, and their language is likewise called Rutooro.
It was founded in 1830 when Omukama Kaboyo Olimi I, the eldest son of Omukama of Bunyoro Nyamutukura Kyebambe III of Bunyoro, seceded and established his own independent kingdom. Absorbed into Bunyoro-Kitara in 1876, it reasserted its independence in 1891.
As with Buganda, Bunyoro, and Busoga, Tooro's monarchy was abolished in 1967 by the Government of Uganda, but was reinstated in 1993.
The Austrian painter Friedensreich Hundertwasser (1928–2000) spent some time there in the 1960s where he painted a number of works and named them after the kingdom.
