The Masaba (or Masaaba) people, or BaMasaaba, are a Bantu people inhabiting the eastern Ugandan districts of Sironko, Manafwa, Bududa,Mbale and Bulambuli. They are closely related to the Bukusu and Luhya of western Kenya. The BaMasaaba moved into central Uganda as part of a much larger group of people, many forming the eastern extension of the great Bantu migration out of central Africa.

The King is Bob Soul Kipiro Mushikori, Umukuuka II, Inzu ya Masaaba (King of Masaaba).
