The head of the clan is Namuguzi Ssebuganda and the name Namuguzi means the buyer. It came about when Ssegamwenge son of Ssebuganda went to Bunyoro Kingdom as part of the entourage that accompanied Prince Kalemeera into Bunyoro. Kalemeera had gone to get help from Bunyoro's royal family (to whom Buganda's royal family was related) in settling a case he was accused of having comitted against Walusimbi, the then Katikkiro. While in Bunyoro, Ssegamwenge bought many hoes which he brought back and sold in Buganda. On seeing the many hoes he had bought, the Baganda named him Namuguzi.
Because of their descent from Kintu, members of the clan sometimes refer to themselves as being of royal lineage. This however is not recognized officially, the royal lineage instead is reckoned from the direct descendants of Kimera, the third King of Buganda. Indeed for this very reason, the clan was at times persecuted in the past by some kings who resented the clan's allusions to royalty. This led some members of the clan to go into exile in Bunyoro and areas of Buddu. Some others assimilated themselves into other clans to avoid being associated with the Mpologoma clan. With the end of the persecutions, many of these people have now come out and openly declared their true allegiances.
