The grandfather of this clan called Kawuuki came to Buganda from Bunyoro with Prince Kimera as he came to be crowned King of Buganda after his grandfather Ccwa Nabakka disappeared on hearing that Kintu was coming back to regain his throne from him. The clan head is known as Magambo and the clan seat is in Kyango, Mawokota.
Kawuuki came with his brothers in Buganda and after Kimera was crowned, he gave Kawuuki and his people a hill called Ggolola in Ggomba. He also gave him two hills in Mawokota; Nsasa and Kyango. Kawuuki built his seat on a hill-top in Nsasa.

His name later changed to Magambo because he was he always carried information to the Kabaka usually from god Mukasa in Ssese. In times when the king needed the god, it was Magambo`s duty to pick him from Ssese Islands to the palace and back to the Island.
Carrying god Mukasa to and from the king was the official duty of the Kayozi Clansmen. They also were in charge of the royal drums known as Kanabba.
