Looking back at our original stories, African women had always been head to head with their men in all troubles, problems, and highs and lows of their societies. The problems are those who decided Moroce - meaning those who wants those change all kinds of things around them and thinking of doing them alone without the listening to their brothers, sisters, uncles and aunties. Some became notorious others choose to mingle up cultures and others do not want to behave like they are African are loosing their African ascents. Some decided to demand for life outside of the ones that already exists and others choose to continue along the wrong path. Those become the actual problems of our communities disorganisation and promotion things most of us have seen few years past. How African are you today and your next neighbour?

Innovation is refining available materials into usable products. Do not mix it with development because development is about human standards e.g. social organisations, culture, living, health etc. When you innovate, you need a double care because resources around us are what are naturally made for our survivals. We do not compete with our environment but rather benefit from and share from each other. Innovation posts thread and attract outsider. In about 1700 BC based on ecology, Sudan held capital of Africa. Rivalry kicked in from all Corners of the continent. Many men came in at speed making it nick named Te Atum Gero Ngom. Central Africa gained the most and they continued to maintain their reason and held such power for centuries. Madagascar was the trade center and called Anyongo. Primitiveness encouraged declined in technology advancement leading to lost of many lives at sea and making it a Apungo state. Having said the above makes me feel so old while the evident is so clear in our faces. Are regaining by thinking chiege ways!?

In Egypt: With due respect, Pari were the very people who understood, developed, designed Piremit. They did so because of the knowledge and needs they had at the time. Competition kick in and because of pride, they could not keep up with their neighbors and took too much of their time not thinking about calling in around them. Not only do they loose Piremit, they now have to move the whole five countries. Something not just difficult to do, but might take centuries or so.

Somalia: In Somalia, the Pari once again came up with a totally new way to accommodate. They erected their buildings walls and floor by using sands. The was lost and emerged in cement industry. They also used sand for their roofing and trucks. They failed big again because of expanding the idea to the rest of Africa, they might have decided it was not worthy and paid no detail attentions to it.

South Sudan: Memory of the past was haunting them. In south Sudan, their was no such amount of water they had in Somalia. So, now what do we do freaks! They imagine that if you have Kut, you can dig a wang it and produce amount of clean and fresh water you need in spite of distance and content. They did and the result was outstanding. They had water that can now feed their dwol, population, and revive their bunga.

Business: Pari are not business oriented and they won't be soon. Their lives depend on daily bread. To improve their livelihood, they could connect their bunga, accommodation and wang it. We could not blame all failures on the people though some of their government officials were akimbo and stayed POLE(Kiswuahili). But first, they need to rethink from where they started and improve. Personally, my blame is on Juba government of the time because they didn't question anything but kept on Miel wiro bul.

The time is year 2035. Europe need to resettle the global affairs. The search for a new beginning has begun. Warsaw as a capital city has enough at hand. London as the oldest known administrator agreed to offer her support but with the help of Parish. Italy also decided to join in on the side line. Moscow is under severe threat from what is on development from the three colonies. Berlin now has to calm the situation but only if there is need for development and both sides will stand together. That was a shock wave to Beijing and Tokyo. The world is on its way to a turmoil. Empires of the world(Israelis, Romans and Greeks) must come in while opportunity still exist. As time pass by, it is 18/08/2019, Israel as home of the smallest but managed to hold the whole world organised what was known as BOKE(Bodies of known Empires). It was successful! That gave light to the world. Asians where on the landslide. The most experienced originals of Cambodia, Vietnam and Korea must come together to counter both the empires and Europeans power. Europe now, has a new front to tackle. On 19.9.2019, Munich decided to offer what was known as GEA(Guardians of Europe and her Allies). Siberia appeared on the weak so now they need Asians, but there was no ideas. 7/5/2029, the world body is formed while Oyo appear at the sideline. The world remembers and Oyo was asked to do what they do best(What should we do?). We are forgotten! Oyo had to put in an inquest African Capital city - Dodoma. "We need a new race, New battle", replied DODOMA. Gulu wanted to be city this time because their arquement was that this is the third time they have done that so they be given the City. The world body encouragement to them was that it is always a team work. Africa had what was call FAGS(Sport of the Future). Central, North, South and west Africa agreed on the capital city, but wanted west Africa to hold commercial, South African for culture and Libya as head of African defense and central Africa as innovation of Africa while Kenya becomes the big apple of Africa. All was good. As they discussion went on, there was new coming in that India and Bangladesh are on under ground continental negotiation. Anyway, it was not that important because the new race, new battle idea is still on the table and not exhausted. By the year 2034 Parish and Munich offered their version of sport and the battle ground became Antarctica. Moscow was not buying into that, they needed Greenland because it is close to home. On their dismay, Greenland is already the new Europe so they have to abide by the world rule. Africa, Asia, Europe, and Deism came to a conclusion that it be Antarctica. Later Moscow gave in their answer seconding Antarctica. 2035 the world bodies sat on one table discussion security of the world under the watch of the big brothers.

Bunga: We do not need to use to old age ideas to pursue our security and understand our environment and keep it safe. The world around us has evolve and so we need to play safe and logical. The idea is use less effort but gain big. What is easy today according to me is to adopt Camera system. There are all types of Camera available in the market that withstand whether and just gather data and information from a safe location. When needed you deploy task force or field workers to where there are problems. Imagine Uganda as poor as it is and as low as it is in terms of developement, social orientation and cultural division can manage to channel fuel pipe line from Western part of its country to the farthest East of Tanzania. That same trick can be use to wire our jungles and just have teams of in house, on air and on food to collect, monitor and guide the security of Bunga.

Water: Africa is large in term of land area and is blessed with both fresh water on the interior and the seas and Oceans around it. Those are our(African) resources, but are worthless without nurturing them. We need to make sure their is balance of use, knowledge about their activities and dangers they posses. What do we do with African deserts and Jungles borders me more than anything else.

Cities: I am not worried about city criminal activities at all. I have an in and out knowledge of its operation, but I am worried about system set for a city and who is in and out and who is where and why. We can use Modern technology like camera, but Africa is protected by its system - socialism.

Is an alternative to noun. Pronounce in other word a adjective of nouns in general. Grouping things as a single entity and calling them one name. One people are in a group, it is difficult to know all of them by their names in this case they are categorised in groups of gender e.g. she/he and number e.g. they, them, it, us, That, these, those, this, all.

Pronounce Luo singular(Aciel)
Luo Plural(Ma dwong)
she Anyaka Anyira

they Gin(Under development) gin duc
them Jo(Under development) Ji
it gini

NOTE: Under development

Traditionally everything(Magwi ne) are named according to behavior, appearance, sounds, color, walk/movement, reactions etc. Let's find out why Puk/Tortoise(word), Opuk(noun), Opuki(exiting) and Okuto/thorn names has become so. There are two major categories of Opuk namely Land Tortoise(Opuk Ra) and Water Tortoise(Opuk Okulo). The Luo in general have chosen Opuk as a name just because they are always exiting from either water or jungle. They however, have a slang for them too - Oger. Ger was a challenging word chosen to in other word say, "they cannot build". Whenever they see Opuk, they caution them, "Build!?". It is another same as when you walk with your pet, you speak to like a human for that reason the Luo have ever been cautioning the exiter to one day build but it has never been so up to date. Okuto is however, named after its effect. When you get pierced by a thorn, whether you remove it or not, it bleeds, but after a while it closes then begins to swell and that is when the actual pain begins. There are so many types of Okuto e.g. Lango, Lacaro etc. Lacaro is the type that all should be able to see and be aware off because of their size and colour. If you are hit by it, you are possibly careless.

We can agree by now that letters do not make words, but segmenting letters make us have meaningful words. Linguistical disabilities and abilities creates differences in our way of communicating information in spite of meanings. When you speak languages, you are probably going to have an ease in learning a new one because all tricks are same, but syllables makes the situation a little different. Attachment and availability things e.g. food, trees, animals, unusual things we are used to doing allow us use it often and that is our nature. Other people prefers to use Th, au, ph, f, i at the end or beginning of a word and that totally their choice as long as that is what makes them happy and keep them at peace. Why border about it and so are they. Don't get confuse because syllable is so close to pronunciation.

Example 1 Au or Ou

Otto: 2 syllables; ot and to

Outhow: 3 syllables; Ou, tho, ow

example 2 th and i

Ariet: 2 syllables; A and riet

Arieth: 3 syllables; A, Rie and th

Arieti(ariet i): 4 syllables; A, rie, ti, i. The confusion here is that other tribes will say rieti while others will say Riet i(with an ie sound)

example 3 w and i

Opio: 2 syllables; opi, io(the two syllables are hardly noticed because it does not end on i but rather makes it a bridge)

Ophiew: 3 syllables; O, phi(similar to an f sound), ew(e u(eiu) sound)

example 5

Nyalupa: 3 syllables; nya, lu and pa

Nyilubai: 4 syllables; nyi, lu, ba and i

nyingeyotayotato: 7 syllables; nyi, nge, yo, a, yo, ta, to

Every(Ma Gwi) tribe have a special letter beginning or end of word they used often compared to others e.g. O, A, I, Lo, N, M. TH, PH is and Y, I are letters that confuses at all time. Y and i are often either doubled or used separately in words. Putting special letters at beginning of words clearly alter the meaning making it trade mark of that tribe.
