to them. In some cases small children were versed in joke-telling and joined in the conversation.
The county however was not wealthy and in fact most of its people were poor. Due to the fact that the tree from which bark cloth is derived had dried up, Bulemeezi ported bark cloth from Busiro and Mawokota. There were two sections, Busubika and Matemebe, which were prosperous in cattle raising, but for the most part, the cattle perished due to some diseases that were not native to the area. Until King Kamanya’s reign, a large portion of the county belonged to Bunyoro, the part known as Luweero being the latest portion to be subjugated. Bulemeezi has one large river that flows right through the entire county called Lugogo. The two capitals, at Buzinde and Kasaga, founded by Kintu, were the only ones ever established here.
