Nakapelimoru & the Karamojong – Nakapelimoru & die Karamojong

e/d 14 pictures

100 kilometres north of Moroto lies Kotido, a small and either dusty or muddy town in the centre of the huge Karamoja plains.

Approximately 10.000 Karamojong are living in Nakapelimoru. The settlement consists of traditional kraals, concentric circular enclosures and corrals to protect their cattle as well as the thatched huts of the families. From above, those small circles glued together in bigger circles resemble foam, sticking together like bubbles and forming a huge geometric structure – a Manyatta. The innermost corral is always reserved for cattle. Weiterlesen

e/d Return to Kampala – Rückkehr nach Kampala

Five years after our first visit to Uganda and its capital, we finally revisited Kampala in July – twice. Of course, it´s a characteristic African capital, which means that it has got a modern town centre as well as sheds, huts and slums as far as the eye can see – for probably close to two million inhabitants. But set on “seven hills” amidst a rolling landscape one can also instantly observe the ongoing battle for the souls and the lives of the Ugandan people while looking at Kampala. A battle, which failed to attract my attention back then, but therefor this time, it struck me right away! Weiterlesen
