There is a statement trending on social media attributed to Muhoozi Keinerugaba.

In the statement it is claimed that nobody on earth can defeat the Bachwezi. Regardless of the Agenda of the the one who made the claim, I would like to put the historical record strait. Needless to say, the Bachwezi were defeated by the Luo around the end of the 15th or the beginning of the 16th Century.

Not only did the Luo defeat the Bachwezi but the former proceeded to occupy the headquarters of the latter’s headquarters at Bigo bya Mugyenyi in present day Ssembebule district.
