HISTORY OF MARAGOLI

Migratory movements
According to Simioni Jumba (author of The Mulogoli History and Family), the ancestors of the Abalogoli originally lived in Arabia. When their ancestors migrated from Arabia, they travelled up to the Red Sea, and then crossed it into Egypt. They continued travelling, this time in a boat on the Nile, of until they eventually arrived in Uganda. They emigrated because the Arabs used to capture and sell people; and also used to eat them.

After reaching Uganda, the migrants travelled farther. They crossed the lake (Victoria) and went to Seme. When they left Seme they moved to Maseno; then they came here into Maragoli. The Abalogoli came here ahead of the Abanyole. According to other informants the ancestors of the Abalogoli came from Egypt; they did not originally come from Arabia. More>>>

Brotherhood with the Kisii:
When the migrants left Uganda following the lake, they later arrived at Rusinga. At this point one group lost their way and continued their journey on the lake until they finally reached Kisii. After this separation, the other group (the Abalogoli) travelled as far as Seme. The group which came this way was the spearhead of the entire team of the migrants when they left Uganda. Those who went to Kisii were at the rear; accordingly, they lost their way at Rusinga as they did not know the direction in which the people who came this way had travelled.

In all these journeys they always took with them an “ekituba” for kindling fire. And so the people who went to Kisii lit a fire on a hill and, likewise, those who came here also kindled one. Then the two groups saw smoke on both sides; and they knew that they had lost one another. The party which went to Kisii was led by Chimagati and Lugaga; those who came here were led by Mulogoli.
