They however, lost that recognition because at the time, tribes in Wau e.g. cholo, luwo, etc were regarded as nomadic and in their book it was written most violent people. Tribes like Luwo just has their tribe name written in word and is unforgettable....

Major problem is when you cracked from inside - your people fighting each other. In only few decades, Pari has come off strong again and in many ways may regain Juba.

Clean in Acholi or Luo is the newest game ever played. In the old days we had the most worrying, dogie, dangerous and evil music you can find in our culture. I am not old enough to fully educated you on this matter, but I witnessed, danced, played instrument, organised and got involved in it from about 4 years old to 7. I later also got involved in the weaker version which is only one percent...

Okebo describe their tribal structure in terms of localised unilineal descent groups. Three levels of segementation appear to be important, and will be differentiated as clans, sub-clans, and lineages respectively. Exogamy is a mark of clanship, and therefore when two groups do not intermarry the presumption is that they belong to the same clan. However, complications arise from...

Their social structure is a variant of that found among the chiefless Sudanic peoples of the north-western Congo and the neighbouring parts of the southern Sudan, a type which has so far never been fully described.

Local government, in the usage law and administration, has not meant the administration of the people by the Nyamparas, headmen, wakils and sultans, but primarily the evolution of the central organisation of Districts, or which these were assumed as the local agents. It is a matter of a degree, for in Uganda provinces, Districts, counties and sub-counties all have define statutory powers in a...

The powers of chiefs are legally defined by the Uganda Native Authority Ordinance. Although there was a combination of new and old features, the general principle was that the status, powers and duties of chiefs were to be exactly as they had been under conditions of indpendence inso far as they were "not repugnant to morality or justic" and had not been otherwise restricted or added to by the...

People have their own weakness when things are imposed on them knowingly. Human hates each other because they are in competition with each other. Colour do affect every community because of its orientation and perception. One colour tend to prefer one their own and abandon the one that is different to theirs because of effects and dangers that comes with it. White is interrogative and black is...
