Mundaris and the Herd of the Kings

On the banks of the White Nile of South Sudan, imposing antlers paint a forest of horns across the orange lights of dawn. The rough breathing and powerful lowing precede the blasts of a horn blown by a rancher from the Mundari tribe. It’s the start of a new day for these people who share their lives with Ankole Watusi, the herd of the kings. Mogga, a respected shepherd, wakes up and sings good day to Mamuar, the bull he’d be willing to give his life for.


“During the sunrise I like to sing to Mamuar. Mamuar is the best ox. He is like a small god, the leader of the herd and my friend”
