FOR BETTER OROMIA

Gadamoojjii

Ob  Jaarsoo Guyyoo, Gada Moji  of Oromo of the the Southern Oromia, Boranaa.
The Borana live in south Oromia, East Africa. They are ruled by the Gadaa system: every 8 years, the leader changes! You cannot miss a chief , as he wears a Kallachaa (the phallic thing you can see on the picture), a big stick called Horooroo and the whip , called Lichoo ,that is used on ..his wife! as he told us.

The first baby can be offered to the Abbaa Muudaa, the Spiritual Leader of Oromo, called Waaqeffataa as a sacrifice. This job is done by a shaman who lives in the forest. The Political leader of the Oromo called Abbaa Gadaa, changes every 8 years.

When a chief visits a village, he can sleep with others women: he just has to put the chief stick wood in front of the door and everybody knows he’s with a woman inside. It’s an honour for a Borana to know that his wife has been choosen.
