Mugamba

Mugamba is a natural region in the Bururi Province of Burundi. The Rugo is a traditional Burundian house of the region. There is also a town named Mugamba in the Mugamba Commune located in the region.

Historic populations in this area have created shelters to protect themselves from the relatively low temperatures and high precipitation of this area. The rugo, or traditional Burundian house or housing complex, of this area includes dwellings of all the members of the same family, and is surrounded by a bamboo fence. The dimension of the house is determined by the size of a person lengthened on the ground, extending their right hand outward. A stake having to be used for the tracing of the diameter of the house is then fixed at the end of the finger (the major one). This dimension is function of the social status and the needs for the owner.

Country - Burundi

Flag of Burundi
Burundi, officially the Republic of Burundi (Republika y'Uburundi, ; undefined, or ), is a landlocked country amid the African Great Lakes region where East and Central Africa converge. The capital is Gitega, having moved from Bujumbura in December 2018. The southwestern border is adjacent to Lake Tanganyika.

The Twa, Hutu and Tutsi peoples have lived in Burundi for at least 500 years. For more than 200 of those years, Burundi was an independent kingdom, until the beginning of the 20th century, when Germany colonised the region. After the First World War and Germany's defeat, it ceded the territory to Belgium. Both Germans and Belgians ruled Burundi and Rwanda as a European colony known as Ruanda-Urundi. Despite common misconceptions, Burundi and Rwanda had never been under common rule until the time of European colonisation.
