Henry M. Stanley (*1841) was a famous british Explorer, who invetigated during the 19th century the inner terrritory of central africa. He had contact to the Budu-People who probably lived nearby the Awurimi River. During the "Emin Pasha Expedition" (1887) he established "Fort Bodo", another interesting story that will be told later. Maybe he took the word "bodo" from the Language Budu, which means "peaceful".
