This is the ruling clan of Buganda which follows the maternal lineage. This maternal system helps the Kingship of Buganda to revolve from clan to clan as different women from various clans marry into the royal family. This therefore means that all clans eligible to marry from this Royal clan have a potential to produce a king. In modern terms, it is a system that dencentralized power.
