"Self-will in the man who does not reckon wisely is by itself the weakest of all things.” — Aeschylus

The people of Kigyezi - Bahororo, Banyankore, Bakiga and Bafumbira are a good lot. Charming even! They are people who carefully, in a practice dating to the days of the Bachwezi, select names for their newborn.

Each name is a prayer of blessing. Each name is a reaffirmation of one’s heritage. The name Kakwenza, is one such name. It’s meaning – good wishes to you from all men.
