[BUNYORO, Muganda]
Danieri Kamukukulu went to Bunyoro as a church teacher in 1896 or 1897.[1] When European missionaries arrived in 1899 he was in charge of the work at Hoima, and the Rev. A. B. Fisher describes him as “a little man who has been a long time at work here and is a perfect master of the language.”[2] He accompanied Fisher on a safari to Kibero and Fajao.[2] He left to return to Buganda in about 1906.[3]
