Ssezibwa waterfalls in Uganda
Ssezibwa Falls in Mukono District, Uganda.
The words “sezibibwa kkubo” from which the river obtained its name, mean that "no obstacle can stop me from moving on".
Legend has it that a woman by the name of Nakangu, gave birth and instead, out of her came two rivers that split to make two streams below the water falls, which presently form this part of the river. In local tradition it is believed that the spirits of Nakungu’s unborn children – Ssezibwa and Mobeya still live on and inhabit the waters of the river.
Baganda still associate something supernatural when someone give birth to twins. Sacrifices are still made here after parents birth to twins.
