Twins in Buganda ~ Gorilla Tour Booking Safaris
Among the Baganda, as it is among some other African ethnic groups, there are specific names assigned to the twins themselves and this naming depends on birth order. The firstborn twin name is 'Wasswa' for the male and 'Babirye' (Bah bee ree yeh) for the female. For the second-born, 'Nakato' is to the female and 'Kato' (Kah Toe) for the male version.
Special gifts are considered to the parents of these twins because of such a blessing to them. This derives the title of 'Ssalongo' to the father and 'Nalongo' to the mother once twins are born.
Twins in Buganda

Their birth should be followed by serious cultural activities in their ancestoral homes together with their living relatives (Clan members). This is believed to make the twins strong people of a great legacy of their respective clans over others. Contrally to this, the twins together with its family members cease to have peace forever.This is called 'Okuzazza Abalongo' in the Buganda local language meaning 'Making twins born.'
Majority claim older twins are usually hyper. Younger twins (Nakato or Kato) have the reputation of being sanguine and quiet. It is also believed in the Kabaka land that twins should never be separated from each other forexample living in different homesteads until they mature enough to adult understanding.

Another entertaining moment comes when the twins die, because according to the Buganda culture, it should be stated in someone's speech that they have 'Flown' instead of 'Died'

Twins among the Buganda are uniformly pampered despite them having different physical and mental capabilities.

However, one would then pose a question concerning cases of more than two twins, yes this is likely to be the same this side too.
