It is not known how many children were fathered by Omukama Kakende, or who those children were.

His reign

1875–1876 and 1879–1880 Omukama Kakende was raised to the throne in 1995 following the flight of his older brother, Rububi Kyebambe II, with the help of an invading army from Buganda. However, when the army left Toro in 1876, Omukama Kakende left with them. He returned with another army from Buganda in 1879 and deposed his brother Rububi Kyebambe II. He ruled until 1880.

The final years

In 1880, Toro was invaded by an army from Bunyoro. The invaders expelled Omukama Kakende, who first took refuge in Ankole and later in Buganda. Omukama Kakende died from smallpox in Buganda, prior to 1885. He was buried there.[1]
