The city was named so because of the fact that the Buganda chiefs used to sit there when making decisions over some cases. It later became a British administrative and colonial centre in 1893 because it was where Sir Gerald Portal introduced his military base. It is famous for hosting international airport and is also remembered because of the 1976 rescue operation by the Israel military forces that freed over 90 hostages following the Palestinian plane highjack during the regime of once a political dictator, Iddi Amin Dada – the self-proclaimed conqueror of the British Empire.
