If you have been watching, reading and or listening to the world news, then am sure you have ever read and or heard about this religious place named Namugongo Martyrs Shrine which is known to attract thousand of people every year during the remembrance days. Located in Wakiso, people do foot from the districts all over Uganda and the neighboring countries each year to mark the Martyrs day, a day when a total of 32 young men were burned to death at Namugongo after they refused to renounce Christianity.
Known as part of the UNESCO recognized heritage sites and also known as Ssekabaka’s Tombs, the site is located in Kasubi Kampala. The sites are burial places of four Kabakas of Buganda including Muteesa I, Mwanga II, Daudi Chwa II and Sir Edward Muteesa II.
