about

Lake Victoria (the salty lake) has not only been the source of food but also of scourges like HIV/AIDS:
“Oh, salty lake, you have helped destroy my people"

lyrics

Chieng moro wadhi Kisumu chieng moro wadhi
Kisumu, ngatni obedo butwa
Dala maler dala malerni yawa, ango motimore yawa
Chieng moro wa kalo loka chieng moro wa kalo loka, ngatni okalo butwa ngatni okalo butwa
Dala maler dala malerni yawa, ango motimore yawa
Yamo kiragi yamo kiragi yamo mahuyahuya
Dhok be wasembo dhok be wasembo watere e kul e mutho
Dhok be wasembo dhok be wasembo winji tia wachie sigana
Une mu pando yoo, une mu lalo yoo,
Yamo kiragi be une tiende eh
Rao rao rabet tinde gi ndalogi jii tho

Yawa nam biro nam muomo yoo
Nam kelo tuo, nam kelo tuo
Nam thego mine, nam thego nyimine
Nam kelo thao, thao thego chuo
Nam chumbi iyoro jii

Yawa nam biro nam muomo yoo
Nam kelo rech, rech kelo thao
Nam tugo mine, mine tugo thao

Yawa nam biro nam mwuomo udi
Nam kelo thao, thao kelo tho
nam kelo tuo, tuo kelo tho

Yawa nam biro nam kalo yoo
Nam kao mine, mine weyo nyithindo
Nam kao baba, baba weyo nyithindo
Nam kao nyiri, nyiri weyo sikul

Milee oh milee
Nam kao jii nam muko udi
Nam tieko oganda, oganda thii nono
Milee oh milee milee oh milee
