CLAN; ALERO KAL

HISTORY

Tis clan belonged to the Lou who migrated from Padwat in Sudan at around 1500AD. The y moved south to Cilu Ku in Madi where they settled first. Later they followed L.ALBERT and crossed to BUNYORO land and formed LOU BABITO DYNASTY in early 1600s after overthrowing BUNYORO KITARA DYNASTY. They ruled for some years and where later overthrown by KABALEGA of Bunyoro forming BUNYORO KINGDOM under the kingship of KABALEGA.They therefore decided to leave Bunyoro in smaller groups. ALERO headed his clan northwards; they met the Payira people while crossing KARUMA FALLS and moved to the present ACHOLI LAND. They settled at a place called ALERO which they named after their grandfather. ALERO had three sons ONYONO, NOCKRACH and LACIC, each son therefore formed his own clan after their father i.e. ALERO PUNYONO, ALERO P’NOCKRACH and ALERO KAL which belonged to LACIC who was given the ROYAL DRUM and the honor of kingship.

NB. The king (Rwot) of ACHOLI tribe comes from this clan of ALERO KAL; the current king (Rwot) of Acholi ONEN ACANA II is from this clan and so are his fore fathers.
