Uganda’s history dates back about 900 years ago. There is a legend documented by John Hanning Speke of how Uganda got its name.

Uganda was the name of a prodigious hunter who came from Unyoro. He was a poor man who hunted to feed his family and was so successful, that he was soon feeding people all around.

He was eventually named Kimera, the first King of Buganda.
