Nyinamwiru had been denied a chance to breastfeed her son Ndahura as her father had been told that the offspring of Nyinamwiru will take over his throne. Though Bukuku worked tooth and nail to prevent the overthrow, it was destined to happen and Ndahura became a famous Muchwezi ruler who is credited to have expanded the Chwezi Empire to the areas on northern Tanzania, Rwanda, and east of DR Congo while using Uganda as the center.
