WHAT DOES KABALEGA FALLS MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Kabalega Falls

Murchison Falls

Murchison Falls, also known as Kabarega Falls, is a waterfall on the Nile. It breaks the Victoria Nile, which flows across northern Uganda from Lake Victoria to Lake Kyoga and then to the north end of Lake Albert in the western branch of the East African Rift. At the top of Murchison Falls, the Nile forces its way through a gap in the rocks, only 7 metres wide, and tumbles 43 metres, then flows westward into Lake Albert. The outlet of Lake Victoria sends around 300 cubic meters per second of water over the falls, squeezed into a gorge less than ten metres wide. Sir Samuel Baker named them after Sir Roderick Murchison, president of the Royal Geographical Society. The falls lend their name to the surrounding Murchison Falls National Park. During the regime of Idi Amin in the 1970s the name was changed to Kabarega Falls, after the Omukama Kabarega of Bunyoro, although this was never legally promulgated. The name reverted to Murchison Falls following the downfall of Idi Amin It is still sometimes referred to as Kabarega Falls. Ernest Hemingway crashed a plane just downriver from Murchison Falls in 1954 Murchison falls from above...
