CLAN; KOC KAL

HISTORY

Tis clan belonged to the Lou who migrated from Padwat in Sudan at around 1500AD. They moved south to Cilu Ku in Madi where they settled first. Later they followed Lake 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 they were overthrown by KABALEGA of Bunyoro forming BUNYORO KINGDOM under the kingship of KABALEGA.They therefore decided to leave Bunyoro in smaller groups. KOC headed his group northwards and passed through the LANGI people after a great fight to pave way. They reached Acholi land and settled at a place they named KOC after their leader. KOC had many sons and after his death his clan was divided into many sub clans. GIRA the second son became king after the death of his father and formed the KOC KAL CLAN while his other brothers moved to other places.
