In 1892 Captain Vittorio Bottego and a companion left Berbera and made their way past Imi to the upper Juba, which Bottego explored to its source, both travellers finally making their way via Lugh to the east coast.
Prince Ruspoli in 1893 reached Lugh from the north, thence turning north-west.
Dr Sacchi, who was returning to Lugh with some of the scientific results of the mission, was also killed by natives.
The station of Lugh, the most advanced point occupied by Italy, had been founded by Captain Bottego in 1895.
At the close of 1907 the Negus Menelik, in return for a pecuniary indemnity (£r20,000), agreed to a modification of the 1897 line, whereby the Italian protectorate was extended north of Lugh to Dolo.
