II. WHO IS WHO IN KAMAGAMBO




1. HEZEKIAH OYUGI OGANGO- Public Administrator, Public Services management; DC, PC, Permanent Secretary:

The high flying descendant of Ramogi I had a single mindedness to uplift the conditions of all descendants of Kombe Kombe, Aruwa and Podho I. Even his most erstwhile detractors scratch the ground for slurs and anti-Luo slurs against him. And poetically his only sin is no bigger than the sin of Podho II who dismembered the bowels of his daughter to recover the beads. Ogango was philanthropist extraordinary in Luo land because he covered both sides of the lake.
