About Us

Gakondo, an emblematic word from the Kinyarwanda language loosely meaning “traditional” has woven itself into the Rwandan culture after centuries’ worth of
rich and diverse legacies.

The actual origin of the word is credited with the first king of RWANDA kingdom, GIHANGA Ngomijana, who created the first prevailing militia of renowned glaives given the name “GAKONDO”.

Today we honour those brave men and women who helped fortify the kingdom by immortalising their name with all things ‘traditional’ to the Rwandan culture
