First time I heard Ugandans speak, I thought they were speaking Kinyarwanda/Kirundi.

    There are several other languages around Lake Kivu with similar sound and wording. We have some in DRC as well but don't tell them though, since any association or grouping with Burundians/Rwandans is considered an offense of the highest order LMAO.
    I have heard a few kikuyu speaking, there are few words we share. I think those words are root words of Great Lakes Bantu. I have been to Uganda and Rwanda, there is a cline in language relationships.
    Speaking of eastern Congo, there is similarity with neighboring Rwanda and Burundi. Two outliers are Banyamulenge( dialect from a mixture of Kinyarwanda and kirundi) and Bafuliro. Funny thing is Kifuliro is more closely related to Luyankole/Luganda than kinyarwanda/ kirundi. Bafuliro and Banyamulenge live in the same region.
