  1. how absolutely wonderful.As a luo speaker am proud that we can finallly use the language for development by dignifying it on a academic level…..go to southern africa and see deliberate effirts by govts to elevate their languages..ALL of them.

    @ atis….. they learn comp science in malay in malaysia,in swedish in sweden,english in the UK,french in france,Afrikaans in SA…….so what the heck is the deal in learning it in dholuo….. ama you grew up denigrating everything luo/african?
