Bunyoro is one of Uganda`s five constituent kings, along with buganda, Busoga, Rwenzururu and Tooro. In July 1890 an agreement was reached to transfer the entire area north of Lake Victoria to Great Britain. In 1894, Britain declared the region protectorate. In alliance with Buganda, King Omukama Kabalega of Bunyoro opposed Britain`s efforts and attempted to take control of the kingdom. In 1899, Omukama Kabalega was captured and exiled to the Seychelles, then Bunyoro was annexed to the British Empire. Due to Bunyoro`s opposition to the British, part of the territory of the Bunyoro Kingdom was transferred to Buganda and Toro.

It was known as mukuru w`omugongo. The Banyoro were traditionally a polygamous people when they could afford it. Many marriages did not last and it was quite common to divorce. For this reason, payment to the girl`s family was generally granted only after several years of marriage. Pre-marriage sex was also very common. The Omukama (king) and other leaders in the region are considering establishing a university that will focus primarily on teaching relevant work skills in the exploitation of natural resources.
