This group of Luo migrated from south Sudan due to drought, famine, and epidemic disease like fowl pox which killed so many people and they entered East Acholi land at around 1700AD. Under the leadership of Palabek they settled in the place called Pamwoma in a district called kitgum. So this man gave birth to children, where each child formed sub-clan.
