Fun facts about Luganda

The greetings 'good morning' and 'good afternoon' are actually questions in Luganda: Wasuze otya? and Osiibye otya? mean 'How was your night?' and 'How was your day?' respectively.

The name of the Ugandan capital, Kampala, means 'hills of the impala'.

In Luganda, the day doesn't start at midnight like in English, but at dawn. What English-speakers would call seven o'clock is therefore one o'clock in Luganda, as it's the first hour of their day, while the English eight o'clock is the Luganda two o'clock (second hour of the day).
