Jaggas (Chagas), a Bantu people of the southeast slopes of Mount Kilimanjaro, East Africa. Their territory lies on the main route between the coast and the equatorial lake regions. They are of a mild disposition, industrious agriculturists, and friendly to Europeans, to whom they now look for protection against the incursions of the predatory Masai tribes. In the recent partition of East Africa between England and Germany the Jagga county was assigned to the latter power, the dividing line running a little north of Kilimanjaro.
