They love a drink in this neck of the woods and if you walk around the market you will find its is predominantly women in town (I guess most of their men folk are out cattle rustling) so it must be the women that do most of the drinking.
There is one side of town to the east of the main market area where most of the area outside of a lot of the shacks is taken up with sorghum or millet drying in the sun. This is all part of the process of making marua. The roasting of the grains that you can see in the photos is also another part of the process. The result after a few days of drying roasting and fermenting is a thin consistency alcoholic version of what you might have seen being sold as Bushera.
There are several drinking dens in this end of town as well as the women in the market selling the stuff by the cup load for 100UGX a mug full. After being offered a small cup full in the market by one of the Karamajong women "Try it. If you like it I'll give you a cupful for free" she told me in Swahili. It was lovely and I bought a couple more cupfuls before a large crowd had gathered around me and thought I'd better move on save the market grinding to a halt as everyone was gawping at this muzungu drinking Marua.
Watch a match at Old Trafford!
