 +\\  Obur Gabriel belongs to Parabongo clan. Their greatest grandfather was Labongo, the man who led them from Sudan into Uganda. Labongo led his group of Nilotics up to Akwang Hills in Kitgum. A small section of this people left Akwnag hills leaving a greater population there. They crossed Aswa river and came to Guruguru hills where a clan called Pamuca had settled. They made a deal and Parabongo people were given the area around Lamola hill. It is from here that Parabongo people moved eastwards to where is now called Lamogi Ber. Mr. Obur says a bigger part of their people live in Agago district where the population is about that of a sub-county.\\ ​ This people made friends with their neighbours ver quickly. They went into marriage and soon became a well known clan. They liked making fun and also liked being made fun of. One time during the leadership of Obadi a man of the clan had a daughter who had been newly married. By tradition, all the bride wealth paid was to be securely kept until it is taken to pay for a son’s wife. It so happened that a hyena took one of the goats from the bride wealth. Young men followed the hyena till they found it. They killed it roasted he meat and ate yet meat from a hyena was not eaten by tradition. Made from other clans made a lot of fun of this people for eating hyena meat. Musicians composed songs on this. This old Obur Gabriel hadn’t had his hair saved since 1980 reasons being the Democratic Party in Uganda lost in the general elections that year. He claims he will save only when the Democratic Party comes to power !!!!!!!!
