The Konjo (pl. Bakonjo, sing. Mukonjo), or Konzo, are a people located in the "Rwenzori Mountains of southwest "Uganda. Numbering 361,709 in the 1992 census, they live on the plains, hills and mountain sloping up to an altitude of 2,200 meters. Traditionally "agriculturalists and "animal husbanders, they farm "yams, "beans, "sweet potatoes, "peanuts, "soy beans, "potatoes, "rice, "wheat, "cassava, "coffee, "bananas, and "cotton, while keeping "goats, "sheep, and "poultry. They speak the "Konjo language and practice traditional "religions and "Christianity. Konjo speakers also live on the western slopes of the Rwenzori range in the "Democratic Republic of the Congo.
The Konjo were part of the armed "Rwenzururu movement against the "Toro Kingdom and central government that reached heights in the mid-1960s and early 1980s. In 2008, the government recognized the Rwenzururu Kingdom, formed by the Konjo and "Amba peoples, as Uganda's first kingdom shared by two tribes.
Since July 2014, secessionist ambitions have led to armed clashes in which dozens have died.
