The 30m high waterfall lies on the Kyabambe River. It is very pretty and peaceful with surrounding forests and quiet roads which offer pleasant rambling opportunities. The tranquil atmosphere though belies Kisizi’s macabre past. It was a site of many tragic deaths of young pregnant girls in traditional lukiga society where virginity was a highly prized asset and its loss outside marriage harshly punished. A girl who got pregnant before marriage faced a very certain fate. She would either be cast out of society which was no doubt a fervent prayer of many for worse was meted out. The errant girl would be tied to a tree in the forest or bush and left to be devoured by animals, or else she would be pushed from a cliff to plummet down the rocky heights or be tossed bound hand and into the pool below the fall.
