Amuru Elders Turn to Traditional Gods in Search of Rains

The long period without rain has prompted traditional leaders/elderly people in Otorokume sub-parish, Pogo parish, Pabo sub-county of Amuru district to perform a cultural ritual meant to appease their traditional gods, whom they think are one causing the drought. The elders are to slaughter a sheep in a designated location as part of the ritual. All residents of the area have been asked to refrain from garden work, cutting trees or chopping firewood today when the ritual is to be done. This report was sent to News-Hapa by Richard Okiya of Pabo subcounty, Amuru district.
