Nyawawa

Long long long time ago our Ancestors  died during measles epidemic and were buried in Lake Victoria. Because of agony and pain that befell our land (Luo) the ancestors in death vow to warn us every time an epidemic is just about to strike, it is believed that they come in weird sounds/whistling wind and funny breeze or strong wind.

If you happen to hear them pass near your home you are expected to warn your neighbors by beating a metallic object to produce sound and drive them towards the Lake. Today was one of those days and Villagers were literally crying that Corona is just about to strike, I was moved beyond words.

e.g.

Nyawawa okadho ka. Wasegoyo depe seche ariyo motuch! 

en

Spirits have just passed. I've beaten the drum for two hours.
