Nkoba Za Mbogo is reportedly an association ofBaganda students with branches at Makerere University in Kampala, and at Islamic University in Mbale (New Vision 15 May 2000; ibid., 11 July 1999; ibid., 11 June 1998). Addressing students of the Islamic University, Kabaka [King] Muwenda Mutebi of Buganda reprotedly encouraged the students to pursue gainful employment through entrepreneurship (New Vision 15 May 2000). He commended the Nkoba Za Mbogo group of Baganda students for mobilizing the youth and thanked the university administration "for allowing the students to enjoy their ethnicity without any interference" (ibid.). Additional information on Nkoba za Mbogo could not be found among the sources consulted by the Research Directorate.
