Shambaa People __ "Shambaa history can be divided into three periods. The first begins with the settling of Shambaa peoples in the Usambara mountains over 200 years ago and extends until the early 19th century when the Kilindi ruled supreme in Shambaa territory. The first Kilindi king was Mbegha, an exile from neighboring Ngulu."
