The Banyabindi originally migrated from the great
Bunyoro Kingdom. They are
cultivators and were badly affected by the Rwenzururu
rebellion of the 1950s which led to their displacement and
many of them dying. Subsequent regimes did not provide an
enabling environment for them to settle back into their
homes. Having lost all their land, they also suffer stigma
from neighboring ethnic groups and have an identity crisis
by likely facing extinction. They survive by renting cheap
land for cultivation from absentee landlords. As a minority group they lack
political representation due to their small numbers.
