Chief Mkwawa was an African hero. A great military strategist, he fought and won a historical battle
against the German colonizers in Lugalo in 1891. Seven years later he committed suicide rather than be
captured by the Germans who later beheaded his body and took his skull to Germany where it was stored
in a museum up until 1954. Chief Mkwawa’s story is full of intrigue, suspense, glory filled victories and agonizing
defeats is one of the most important in the African fight against colonialism and western imperialism.
