 Na SPECIAL REPORTER for Gusii:

 

Omogaka Akama Mosorori was born in the year 1922 as the first born son of the second wife to his father, Omogaka Mosorori. Omogaka Akama, 85 years old, was circumcised at the age of 20 in the year 1942.

Later that year he found himself  a wife through Esigani and they married later the following year after his circumcision which was the year 1941. His wife bore him 12 children [ five boys and seven girls]. Omogaka Akama told us that he lost two of his children through calamities and various illnesses that saddened him for many years.

Kilgoris used to be called Etangi !!

Mzee Akama told us about our Abagusii forefathers settling in the area around Kilgoris or Etangi as it was known then. Omogaka Akama said that Omogusii Omotang'ani [ Mosorori ] settled in their village and after selling there, he felt very secure and safe. However, a few years later, Mosorori was chased and he ran for his life to Dholuo Land.

It was in Dholuo Land where Mosorori got married to a wife who bore him sons. Mosorori could not enjoy life and be peaceful. When the Luo realized that Mosorori had sons, they chased him away and set boundaries on their farms to discourage any future settlement !!

Omogaka akama

At a glance:

NAME: OMOGAKA AKAMA MOSORORI
AGE: 85 YEARS
VILLAGE: ENDERETI [BOMACHOGE]
CONSTITUENCY: BOMACHOGE BORABU
DATE OF BIRTH: 1922
NO OF WIVES: 1
NO OF CHILDREN: 12
NO OF GRAND CHILDREN: 105

Our ancestor was a wanderer


 After fleeing from Dholuo land, what did he do? Omogaka Mosorori found his way to Manga Hills and settled there. "It was here at Manga Hills where Mosorori set up a home secured with a Nyansaiga [ big gate ]" Omogaka Akama said. Being the wanderer that our ancestor was, Mosorori departed the Manga Hills, leaving part of his family over there. Mzee Akama said that to this day, no one knows why he left part of his family in Manga.

Bokimwange has a story: Omogaka Mosorori met Omogaka Maathu in Sengera

Omogaka Mosorori was very social. After leaving Manga Hills, Mosorori settled in the area around Sengera, where met a man who became his great friend, [Omogaka  Maathu ].  Together with Omogaka Maathu, they moved from Sengera to the area around Endereti [ Bokimwange ] where they settled as the first people in that region and established a big clan in the area.

Some years later, there came a foreigner [ Omosongo ] and he set up a border [ Eramani ]. This was to be the boundary between the Gusii tribe and the Maasai tribe. Once Eramani was set up, 100 members from his family were sent to Nyamaiya !!

Why?

Omogaka Akama says that  those members were banished in order to neutralize the Mosorori clan from fighting for their land. Nevertheless, Omogaka Akama says that up to this day, The Gusii and Maasai are still fighting for land and resources around Eramani just like in the old days.

Education is the answer

He says that to this day, boys in the area grow up and are taught how to fight enemies and protect their land. Omogaka Akama said that the cause of the fighting is land and animals that get stolen from their community. "The days of subdividing land are long gone. Our young people should wake up and get a good education in order to prosper in the future" Omogaka Akama added.

In addition to land fights, Mzee Akama told us that wild animal attacks are rampant in the region because of the Maasai Mara Game Reserve which is not fenced. He says that hyenas and  lions attack their goats and sheep all the time.
