Title
Dette billede viser floden Kagera, som Ugandas tidligere præsident Idi Amin mente skulle være Ugandas grænse til Tanzania. Kagera er en kildeflod til Nilen. På højen stod der tidligere et tysk fort, som der stadig er rester af, og det var et af de steder, englændere og tyskere kæmpede under 1. verdenskrig. Derefter blev der bygget en kirke, som hører til Nordveststiftet og kan ses meget langt væk. Men da Idi Amin invaderede landet i 1978, blev kirken bombarderet og lagt i ruiner. Evangelist Simon Kibarabara har arbejdet her, og han og hans kone bor lige i nærheden. De var til stor støtte for den danske missionær Gudrun Larsen under hendes arbejde på stedet. Foto 1977

Description
This picture shows the Kagera River, which Uganda's former President Idi Amin regarded as the proper border between Uganda and Tanzania. Kagera is one of the sources of the Nile. The hill was previously the site of a German fortress, and there are still traces of the fortress to be seen. It was one of the battle scenes between British and German forces during World War I. Later a church was built on the site. It belongs to the North Western Diocese, and it is visible from afar. But it was bombed and completely destroyed during Idi Amin's invasion of the country in 1978. Evangelist Simon Kibarabara and his wife worked here, and their home is nearby. Their support was of great importance to the work of Missionary Gudrun Larsen in this part of the country. Photo 1977.
