Ugandan ‘Explorer Renames London River’

Ugandan “explorer” Sir Milton Allimadi (in featured photo) made a chance discovery in London over the weekend during an excursion in the city.

He spotted a mighty river that meanders across the UK capital.

So taken was he by his new find that he decided to name it River Gulu, after a Ugandan city. He thought it was not worth checking if the locals already had a name for it.

In fact they did – River Thames they call it.

Sir Allimadi tweeted that he was happy that he had given the river a “proper name”. A discovery that was well received in parts of Africa.

The “discovery” prompted the Thames Discovery Programme, an initiative that explores the archaeology and history of the London river, to change its name.
