Rukidi I of Toro

Rukirabasaija Kato Rukidi I was Omukama of the Kingdom of Toro, from 1871 until 1871. He was the fourth (4th) Omukama of Toro.


Claim to the throne

He was the fifth son of Rukirabasaija Kaboyo Omuhundwa Kasusunkwanzi Olimi I, the first Omukama of Toro who reigned between 1822 and 1865. He rebelled against his elder brother, Kyebambe Nyaika in 1871, with the help of an invading army from Buganda. He seized the throne and Omukama Nyaika fled and went into hiding.


His reign was a very short one. Some accounts say it lasted only two months.[1] He was deposed by his subjects and his brother Kyebambe Nyaika returned to the throne.

Later years

Not long after he was deposed, Omukama Kato Rukidi I died at Kibale in 1871.


Nothing is written about the married life of Omukama Rukidi I.

Not much is written about the offspring of Omukama Kato Rukidi I.
