About the Book

Rebecca Zirimbuga Musoke, nee Kisosonkole, was born into a life of privilege in an age-old African kingdom steeped in tradition. Times changed when the kingdom was swallowed up by the British Empire and later absorbed into an independent African country. The kingdom strove to maintain its identity through the turbulence of political coups and savage regimes bent on annihilating it.

As Rebecca guided her young family through the perilous times, she held onto her faith that someday the kingdom would be restored and life would return to ‘normal’. It came as a surprise to her when her cousin, the queen mother, passed away and Rebecca was named her heir. After many years of bloodshed, times did change and the kingdom was restored. When duty called, Rebecca rose to the challenge of becoming: The Mother of the Kingdom of Buganda (Namasole)!

About the Author

Author Elizabeth Musoke Mubiru was born in England, brought up in East Africa and completed her education in the U.S.A. Her father was furthering his medical career in Paediatrics when she was born, but both her parents were born and raised in Uganda, East Africa. She followed in her father’s footsteps and became a doctor; practising Obstetrics and Gynaecology for twenty-five years. As she endeavoured to absorb the African, British and American cultures she was exposed to, she grew to appreciate her African heritage more and more. She returned to Uganda just four short months before her mother passed away. The task of building this literary monument to her parents was assisted by her siblings and her aunt. Through it all, she acknowledges the guidance and inspiration of her Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.
