The Buganda King Kabaka Ronald Mutebi II received his late father’s Rolls-Royce Phantom IV on July 17 2022 as a belated birthday gift. The refurbished Rolls Royce was once driven Edward Muteesa II as presidential car when he reigned in 1964 as President of the Uganda republic.

During the 1966 Obote force’s raid on the Kabaka’s palace, the Rolls Royce was confiscated along with other Buganda kingdom property, it was compounded in the state house for 47 years until it was moved to the Uganda museum as a historic display.

In September 2020, the prime minister of Buganda Kingdom; Mr Charles Peter Mayiga requested the government to hand back the Mutesa II Rolls-Royce to be repaired and refurbished and the government agreed to further strengthen ties between the kingdom and ruling government party.

Interesting Fact – Only 18 Rolls-Royce Phantom IV were made during 1950 to 1956 and they were built for distinguished buyers including the Royal British family and heads of state who included Buganda Kingdom very own King & President of Uganda; Edward Mutesa II.
