The History of Kiziba and Its Kings: A Translation of Amakuru Ga Kiziba na Abakama Bamu is a major contribution to the indigenous historical literature of East Africa and Tanzania. Research by King Mutahangarwa (ruled 1903–1916) of Kiziba Kingdom in the early 20th century brought together oral tradition experts from both royal and non-royal clans, with their testimonies recorded by literate scribes, including F. X. Lwamgira. Four decades later the research was published in Kihaya as a 490 page volume that has remained obscure, despite its significance.This authoritative translation makes available for the first time an  accessible account of northwestern Tanzanian and southwestern Ugandan history during the pre-colonial and early colonial periods. 3
