Ttembo loved his subjects and would dismiss any chief who would mistreat the people. He even elected councilors to the Lukiiko (Buganda Parliament) to report to him those chiefs who mistreated his subjects. It`s from here that the Buganda Lukiiko started. He became sick and later ran mad. That`s why the Baganda say Ayita Ttembo when one becomes mad.
