The Luo people
Luo is ethnic that belong to Nilotic ethnic family. There are about 17 different Luo tribes. Most of them centered in East Africa, but they also belong to Central Africa. The Luo are nomadic people who grow crops, catch fishes and rear animals. Today, Luo have scarcity of all their major economic and social activities and food production therefore, they are battling to restore their cultures from these losses. The Luo are very hard working and obedient people who loves their leaders and foreign people who come to them. In some parts of Luo, war reduced their developments and created lots of instabilities while other parts of Luo seem to catch up with the changes of the century, but in general, the Luo ethnic community are behind their rivals in all fields from education to business and anything in between. It could also mean that their access to water bodies like nam Apungo for northern Luo and Nam Ker for south Eastern Luo might have been blocked because of their inferiorities.
Based on colloquy, entire Northern including some parts of Central, East, and West Africa was Luo home land. You can confirm that from names like lub(i) yaa, Tinga Nyinge, Kenya, ka Iro, Na ijero, ka tum, Li bira etc. The only question that is left now is how come the North is mostly occupied by Foreigners? It could be how they are socially organised as societies. These might mean, their ideology is overly powered by the sense of giving, acceptance, and helping others more by under mining their own problems and needs. These made their opposite have upper hands in acquiring and occupying their homeland and surpassing them in developments and also making them have no control over their own all, instead, being control by their visitors which might have lead to their losts. For some reasons, it can also be concluded that this lead to some integration amongst Luo and other migrants in other countries.
Luo Tribal Differences
Luo tribal diferences could be the results of conservatism. Major tribes namely Jo Luo, Acholi, Lango and Anyuak. These people are in some ways Modern Luo or at least in near years to come while tribes like Alur, kuman Jo pa Dollo and etc some kind of contemporary. They have since resisted, controlled, fought off freaks, and maintain their supremacy over their land. But these cannot be applied to other tribes like Shilluk, Jur(kaka, jo) chol and the like. Whether you are good or bad individuals or societies, you must take your time to study and understand the reasons why someone wants to be your friend or asks you for a assistance. If you do know it or them then you can find or do the right thing(s) right. Nothing more nothing less only keeping the right stuff for the right future.
Luo Battles of the East
There had been so many invasions and battles with the luo people and their soil under different war lords and Ruodi. The most affected of these are people in Sudan, South Sudan, Ethiopia, Congo, Uganda, CAR, and Egypt in general. The traumers, and surferings can be seen on the people and their lands. Major wars were fought by Alice Lakwena (uganda), Iddi Amin, Joseph Kongy (uganda), Dr. John Garang De Mabior(SPLA), Anyuak people of Ethiopia, and the Alur people of Congo, but there are as many as there could be small wars, raiding, looting, and self interests conflicts in the regions. Luo lost almost all of them, but maintain their defence on their land, children, and people. Causes of these wars, may not be known up to now, but histories tells us that war can start from as small as family feuds, cattle raiding, tribes or between clan variance or differences. Today, no Luo will tell you or even wish for another war, but all have the hope for a better home, family, and country, peace, and love from and to all their neighbours, friends, neighbouring countries, family and every human being.
Luo Leadership System
Leadership is based on a one person(Ruod) with several people within and outside their clans, lineage, family, or even their region for that matter. Also understand that their are many Ruodi as their are many tribes or countries. Ruodi works on task at a time or many at once e.g. farming, building and constructions and much more. As they say, “many hands makes work easy, but also too many Oyo in a group creates dependency”. Ideas matters, but discussion is much more important than just having the ideas. When we work on ideas, we learn, fail, develop sub ideas or a wholesome, or create totally knew thing for the reasons that versions changes and better things sprung out of such. At this time, this month(March and April), Ruodi mostly are organising to organise their people or had already started businesses of the year(s). Time changes and so are people perceptions, activities too are hence, many new things. If push comes to shove, luo leadership style may change to captainisation.This is when one person takes all positions, but is supported, trusted, and backed by everyone around at that time.
