The History of Rwenkobwa Town: A Tale of Courage and Determination, presents a historical account of settlements in villages around Rwenkobwa town, located in Ibanda district, South-western Uganda.

Occupied by immigrants from Kisoro, Kabale and some parts of Ankole, Rwenkobwa town started as a dusty small town with two mud-and-wattle shops, and has since developed into a bustling town council with booming business over the last 65 years.

The book pres-ents a story of highly determined and courageous pioneering individu-als who played a great role in putting up churches, mosques, schools, and got involved in the administration of the town and surrounding villages.

If any one reads this book two things stand out; that develop-ment goes hand in hand with determination, and that society develops due to outstanding individuals who dedicate time, energy and resourc-es to achieve indelible results.

Such individuals account need to be archived to inspire the current and future generations
