18 yr old KING Oyo Nyimba Kabamba Iguru Rukidi IV technically became the king of western Uganda’s Tooro kingdom at age 3, when his father died suddenly of a heart attack. But Tooro custom dictates that a king cannot fully assume the duties of office until adulthood. A few days after his 18th birthday, King Oyo’s enthusiastic subjects crammed into the garden of his hilltop palace to witness a coming-of-age ceremony attended by tribal leaders from across Africa & Uganda.
