Holoholo People __ "Holoholo are descended from the Baguha peoples who escaped from southwest Congo (Zaire) amidst Luba expansionism during the 18th century. In the 1880s the water level of Lake Tanganyika dropped significantly, inviting members of various ethnic groups to move into the area surrounding the town of Kalemie."
