Kyaggwe County was regarded as the richest, most fertile and most prosperous in the Kingdom of Buganda, with coffee plantations, fishing and hunting. The chief, the Ssekiboobo (Emboobo is the hairy rear part of the cow’s tail thus the name Ssekiboobo, that protects the cow from any intruding insects and acts as a fan to regulate temperature), whose county seat is at Mukono, had oversight of Busoga; and whenever the Basoga came to Buganda, the people of the district benefited from their visits. Most of the chiefs of the district had huntsmen, who captured elephants and paid their masters in ivory for the privilege of being
allowed to hunt in their estates. Again, the Banyoro and the Bakedi, when not actively hostile, were ready to barter goods along the frontiers, and thus added to the wealth of the county. The tittle given to the county chief of Kyaggwe is Ssekiboobo with his county seat at Muggulu - Mukono.
