During the Idd Amin’s invasion (the Kagera war) in 1978/79, this area was commonly knowingly as the land of the war, since the war was fought face to face in this area as Amin was already claimed that this land is the property of Uganda. When the Tanzania president Mwl. Julius Kambarage Nyerere (father of the nation) paid the visit in the area to inspect the war he tended to live in the house of Kashozi parish pastor, which is still in its existence at the headquarters of Kashozi parish.
Rev. Mathias Buberwa
