Iteso, one of the largest and united peace loving tribes in Eastern Uganda are set to embark on uniting with their Nilo Hamite counterparts Ikaramojong who are literally referred as ‘Luu Amamai'( Uncles).
The two tribes, considered brothers, had some misunderstanding during the insurgency where the Karamojong raided Iteso and took all their belongings including cattle and goats among others.
The insurgency led to killings by the Karamojong who forcefully took Iteso’s belongings and hence killed those who resisted.
