Well, I'm beginning to feel more Ugandan! I've now been given a clan and a clan name!
I'm a member of the Mamba clan (lungfish) a very ugly creature that gives its name to the largest clan in Uganda. Following a family meeting they decided on my name, 'Namubiru'. To explain quickly in Uganda you don't have a family name you instead have a clan name. This however isn't the same as your parents , each person has their own name selected from about 60 choices that belong to the clan.
I was called Namubiru after the wife of an early chief. The chief and his army were defending their kingdom from enemies however during the battle they ran out of weapons. Many of them gave up and ran away. Namubiru however stayed were she was and made weapons from reeds, she also came upwith a different strategy to defend the kingdom. Because of her the kingdom was saved - and thats who I'm named after!
