Luanda Magere Site and Grave

Luanda Magere Site and Grave 1

The Legendary Luanda Magere was a traditional Luo warrior who guided the Luo community in fighting their enemies in the wars of the olden days. The legend was a ferocious warrior who could not be killed on the battlefield, as the story would have it.

Today, a site in Sidho with a stone is still revered as the spot where Luanda Magere died and people come from far and wide to conduct rituals and prayers at the site. The site is about 12km from the Awasi-Chemelil road, 1.5Km before you reach the Kopere–Songhor junction.  Visitors would often brave the rough terrain and often muddy impassable narrow pathways to catch a glimpse of the mythical legend.
