Ssekabaka Kintu left his Kanyanya palace and went hunting lions with his son Sebuganda and during the hunt, the furious lions fought them back but they managed to kill them. They returned with a lot of meat which was cooked and eaten. It made them very sick and Kintu announced that from now onwards, all my children should never eat lion meat. He wore one of the lion skins and instructed his men to lay another one on the floor as his official rug (Kiyu).
