It’s believed that years back, the Kingdom was a perfect depression to cost you a smile, people were organised basing on their ancestral Bunyoro Clans, each clan with a royal clan of the Kings, princess and princesses. The legislative and judicial powers only belonged to the King-His majesty. It’s at one point that, his word by then was highly respected that it almost equated the word of God. The Bunyoro subjects had a big role to manifest, to ensure that the King never lacked anything.
Bunyoro-Kitara Clans were impressive in nature that each clan was entitled to its unique activity to carry up for the honourable King. The shepherds by then known as “Abaliisa” clan were the great shepherds of the cattle-termed as “Enkorogi,” that belonged to the Kings place and so many clan bisections
The Natives of Bunyoro Kingdom are referred to as the “Banyoro” meaning many Banyoro natives or the “Nyoro” referring to one native. These are believed to be using Nyoro (Runyoro) language as their mode of communication.
Traditionally these were known as food gatherers or hunters who preciously were interested in hunting around the Kingdom in forested areas, they enjoyed big game hunting of leopards, elephants, crocodiles and other valuable wildlife.
However recently, the Banyoro have coped up with many supportive economic activities like Agriculture which has in turn adversely supported the natives; they cultivate banana plantations, millet, cotton, tobacco, coffee, yams and rice, among others.
