“My lord, my son has only been the leader in our land for the last five years. We live under his rule now. The people are duty-bound to follow him.”
“And I do not believe the old tales my father spouted when we were children!” the chief interjected angrily. “My brother may believe those old wives’ tales the elders droned on about in our youth, but I do not. I am the only lord here! We have no need of the gods. You should fall on your face and pay homage to me!”
“Silence, Muruso, have you gone mad?” his father stated, yanking on Muruso’s garments.
“Be still, old one,” Rubani said, holding up a patient hand. “Let your leader speak his mind,” he added calmly.
The old man nodded and took a step back. Rubani turned and addressed Muruso, his words calm and to the point.
“I have been through your land. It is clear to me now that you are disrespectful to the gods and have destroyed the soil with your lack of knowledge. You make no use of your elder’s wisdom. I have conquered the armies you sent to put an end to the Buganda people, so you could conquer their territory. We are here to claim what is now theirs and no longer yours. Do you wish to challenge me for that claim?”
Muruso’s overconfidence put a smug look on his face as he listened to Rubani. He openly looked Rubani over with a sneer on his lips. It was true that Muruso stood as tall as Rubani with a strong and powerful build, but a mere mortal would never be a match for the god of war. The look of arrogance in Muruso’s eye told Rubani that he would accept his challenge.
