the Wahehe are a Ethnie in Tanzania, which offered embittered resistance at the beginning of the Kolonisation of German East Africa from 1891 to 1898. Their famous chieftain was Mgwawa.

The trunk of the name is hehe, which by the morphologic prefixes Wa (Ethnie), AI (language), U (country) and M (the individual member) could be extended.
