Kim Kardashian made her SNL hosting debut last night as she took aim at her family in her monologue as well as discussing her divorce from estranged husband Kanye West. In one of the show’s sketches, Kim also alluded to past exes as she joked about dating the King of Uganda. Kim Kardashian’s King of Uganda comment has since left SNL viewers confused as some have wondered who the King of Uganda is.
Who is the King of Uganda?
Current president Yoweri Museveni reinstated some kingdoms in the early 1990s to be cultural institutions, meaning there are currently several “Kings of Uganda”.
According to RefWorld, some of Uganda’s current “Kings” include Ronald Muwenda Mutebi II of Buganda, Solomon Gafabusa Iguru 1 of Bunyoro, Chief Rowt David Acana Onen II of Acholi, and Nadiope William Gabula IV of Busoga.
