The River Gulu

Recently an explorer made a great discovery. A thus far unknown river! He named it 'River Gulu'. Although the natives have been calling it by a different name for centuries the explorer claims he is the one who made the discovery. Sounds absurd because the explorer is from Nigeria and the river he discovered is known as the River Thames?


But why is it considered normal for rivers and mountains to be 'discovered' in Africa by European explorers although the locals have known that river of mountain for centuries?
