Aaria Ibencho: The Unity Of Omogusii

 

 

Nigo togotebigwa ng'a any culture is dynamic. Ase enchera ende, buna goika ebinto bionchoke. Most of the time, nigo togotebigwa ng'a change is good. Traditionally, enyomba yo Omogusii nigo yakabeire round. Tiyabwate four corners. As we moved along n' okonganya gwaito, chisokoro chiato chigachaka koagacha enyomba ere chikona inye as we see in the picture.

We do not know when this started but that is part of the dynamic change.

Ase Abagusii culture, the traditional homestead ye enyomba ya amaraba no obonyansi amo ne chikoni ensemo might not be here in 20-30 years. Korende aye do not worry. We have the picture here for you. Complete with chimbago, amatoke, emekabiria, ekeoreri, obotantare, egechuuri...........you name it.

Enjoy.
