Wagaba, the grandfather of this clan is the father of Kasirye Ggunju and Ggunju is the head of this clan.
This is the clan that introduced Namulondo; the Kabaka's throne. Nakibinge, Kabaka of Buganda died so early and left his heir Mulondo son of Ggunju's daughter named Namulondo so young. His maternal uncles made him an elevated chair to expose the young king and when Mulondo grew up, he made it the official throne.
The popular Ganda dance known as Amaggunju involving unusual comic antics was also introduced by this clan. As the uncles of the young boy tried to entertain the young king Mulondo, they danced in a way to please a child and it eventually came to be a style in the Ganda dance. Kabaka Mulondo made the dance official in the palace to entertain every kabaka.

Their duty at the royal palace is to take charge of Namulondo. They are the official entertainers of the king with amaggunju dance. They are in charge of god Nende and Kajugujwe is directly answerable. Mwendanvuma, Kabaka's beer gourd is under the care of Luboyera in Busaanyi, Busiro who is the kabaka's brewer (Musenero). They were in charge of bringing god Mukasa from Ssese whenever there was need.
Their principal clan seat is in Bukalango, Busiro.
This clan is believed to have broken away from the nvuma clan.
