Uganda. A crisis of Nationhood.


Today the kingdom is called Buganda,which in Ganda Language simply means Gandaland.Uganda means the same thing in the Swahili language, and since the early travellers knew only Swahili,that is what they called the kingdom.How Uganda grew until it included people varying from the sophisticated Baganda (Ganda people),with their old civilisation,to the tough and likeable Karamojong,who are inveterate cattle-raiders and wear no cloths at all,will become clear later in this book,where the reader will also learn of the fears and rivalries which help to keep all these varied people apart.Read about this wonderful nation.
