A story is told of a king, a very gutsy king. He remains the greatest king of Bunyoro Kingdom. Omukama Kabalega, what a king. A man remembered for his incomparable attempts at protecting his people from the British colonialists who had then taken over the Buganda Kingdom.

Gipir and Labongo: A journey into the Acholi and Alur story

By Solomon Oleny

Gipir and Labongo, what a time old legend! Dating far back into the 15th Century, its climax sits atop a spot on the Albert Nile called Wang-Lei.

The bride’s uncle was not taking prisoners, he had arrived

The pot dance: A pride and elegant pot affair

By Our Reporter

A dance with pots. Herein the ladies rave with several pots lined up vertically atop their heads. But that’s a basic description; there is more. Hands out, waist in and neck held high, this is a dance of pride!

A TREE-SHADE, BEARDED OLD MEN AND UGANDA’S BIGGEST KINGDOM

 

Moons and moons ago, a group of grey-bearded old men chose a tree-shade as a meeting point. The spot, also covered in grass, was where these elders brainstormed about the issues of their different communities.  Little did they know that 700 years later, this spot would birth a whole kingdom,
