Ubena of the Rivers.


Ubena proper,whence the tribe about which this book is written derives its name,lies to the south of Uhehe in the highlands round Mufindi,Lupembe,and Njombe.It is west of the broad Ulanga Valley,whose upper (south-western)end has also been known by the name of Ubena since the early migration days.There has been for several years a desire amongst the Ubena elders for a permanent record of their tribal history and customs,to preserve the memory of what must soon be forgotten if not committed to writing.Here is such a record.
