In Buganda The Queen is known as Nnaabagereka. Her position comes with many expectations and criticism.

She carries the load of judgement, being misunderstood, unspoken challenges but still maintains her position of influence.

The Nnaabagereka could be any woman in our community that shuts her ears and closes her eyes to pitfalls.

She heals, restores and moves on.
