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.
In the interior is Lugh, a populous city on the left bank of the Juba, about 240 m.
The station of Lugh, the most advanced point occupied by Italy, had been founded by Captain Bottego in 1895.
