Oral Literature plays an important part in the lives of Africans. Orally spoken words guide conversation, demonstrate happiness, anger and are a means for disciplining the children. Among the Batooro of East Africa (Western Uganda), as may be the case in other African tribes, Curses were taken very seriously. And when you were cursed, you had a reason to be afraid. But above all, to reinstate the values that society respected deeply, curses were in place to do Just that. In this book, Hilda Kaijabwango explores what curses meant among the Batooro, an African Tribe in Western Uganda. What is the implication of a curse to a friend, a child, and an indisciplined girl? All these questions are slowly but surely answered in this book. But it is also important to explore the context of a tribe which despite facing several transformations through Bristish colonialism struggles to identify itself through words.
