The Rock of Kamegeri

The Rock of Kamegeri – (Urutare rwa Kamegeri – in Kinyarwanda)

Kamegeri was a leader under the reign of king Mibambwe Sekarongoro Mutabazi who was burnt on that rock after he had asked that criminals be thrown on that rock after it was made red-hot.

Since then that rock cliff was attributed to him to become the Rock of Kamegeri, which is situated at Ruhango.

The rock had always existed without a name but later got the name when a man by names of Chief Kamegeri decided a wrong punishment for a man who had disrespected the king, and in turn the King ordered Chief Kamegeri to be burnt on that rock because chief Kamegeri was unhuman since he was proposing horrible death for other people.
