From a History of Kenya:
"In January 1892 there is heavy gunfire between and among the four hills which form Kampala. On the top of one hill is the palace of the kabaka [native ruler]. On another the French have completed a Catholic cathedral of wooden poles and reeds. On a third the Protestants are building their church. On the fourth is the fort established for the [British East Africa] company by Frederick Lugard, who is the only combatant with the advantage of a Maxim machine gun.
