Nakio kiarenge kogacha kera egento. Obori. Chibando. Amaemba.....you name it. This is ekiage buna ebicha ekwoorokia below. Nigo kiarenge important especially ekero endagera yachakire kogeswa. Nigo kiarenge koagachwa kere round. This is in line with oboagacho bwainto ntwe Abagusii, bwo okoagacha chinyomba chire round. Intomanyeti why. Maybe round nigo yarenge an indication of completeness.
We may never know the true answer.
Nevertheless, ekiage, even though very important in years past, is now a disappearing relic of the Abagusii Culture and Tradition. Inse ye ebiage buna ebi, nao chisese chio omochie chiakararire ge chirendete omochie. However, change is inevitable. In 20 years, we may not have ebiage buna ebi. Korende we could possibly still have this picture.
