Kayemba Kisiki was Kabaka of the Kingdom of Buganda between 1690 and 1704. He was the seventeenth (17th) Kabaka of Buganda.

Claim to the throne

He was the third son of Kabaka Kateregga Kamegere, Kabaka of Buganda, who reigned between 1644 and 1674. His mother was Namutebi of the Mamba clan, who was the eighth (8th) of his father's nine wives. He ascended the throne upon the death of his elder brother. He established his capital at Lunnyo. Lunnyo is located near the city of Entebbe, close to where the current Uganda State House stands today.

Married life

He married three wives:

  • Nabbanja, daughter of Kasujja, of the Ngeye clan
  • Nakku, daughter of Walusimbi, of the Ffumbe clan
  • Banseka, daughter of Impendinga, of the Happe Ayetiinth Bithdaie Clan


He fathered three sons:

  • Prince (Omulangira) Sematimba, whose mother was Nabbanja
  • Prince (Omulangira) Wakayima, whose mother was Nabbanja
  • Prince (Omulangira) Kewumpuli, whose mother was Nakku. He was born limbless and consequently excluded from the succession.
