Launch of Imbalu Season
Among the Bamasaaba the traditional rite of male circumcision, popularly known as imbalu, is the most powerful event on the calendar. A tradition stretching back to 1801, it draws Bamasaaba from Kenya and Uganda to the Mutoto Cultural Grounds in Mbale, Uganda, to launch the event, and the cultural spectacle is also beginning to gain recognition as a tourist attraction.
