CLAN; ALERO PUNYONO

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. ONYONO was the first son of ALERO but he was not given the kingship due to old age and incompetency. From ALERO Onyono moved with his people to the place called ANAKA and settled among the Payira people.
