Conversations about Uganda and East Africa - history, politics, culture, people, music, books etc

UGANDA

Uganda, one of the most beautiful countries in Africa, has great human and other exploitable resources to afford its people reason for optimism for brighter days ahead. Its national parks, mountain ranges, multi-ethnic population and historic sites offer great returns to the most discriminating tourist. However, Uganda was arguably the most hapharzadly put together colony, creating a challenged story of attempts at creating a cohesive nation out of a difficult jigsaw puzzle. Nearly 60 years after political independence from Britain, the country remains one of the most complex post-colonial constructs, still struggling with its its identity and its governance. There is plenty to chat about by the Fireplace.

KIGYEZI

Kigyezi is a mountainous triangular wedge in the South-West corner of Uganda. Covering only 2.2 per cent of Uganda, Kigyezi is the country’s most beautiful region. Endowed with rolling terraced hills and mountains, fresh water lakes, extinct volcanoes (Muhabura, Sabinyo, Mugahinga), Kigyezi is a visual replica of neighbouring Rwanda. Bwindi National Park, with its world-famous Mountain Gorillas, and the southern end of Rwenzori (Queen Elizabeth) National Park, with its tree-climbing lions, are located in Kigyezi. It has been said that Kigyezi is the Switzerland of Africa. Kigyezi is a multi-ethnic community (Abafumbira, Abahororo, Abakiga, Abanyarwanda and Abatwa) with a rich history, traditions and languages that we seek to share, promote and preserve at this Fireplace.
