Social organization
What is the dominant feature of Karamojong society? Is it based on generation? Which generation has an increasing overlap in age? And does this really lead to a breakdown of the system?

Is the Karamojong system flexible enough to contain a build-up of tension between generations over a cycle of 50 years or so?

What are the requirements for engagement? Is it really true that a young Karamojong man is required to wrestle the woman he desires to marry?

Again, is it true that If he is successful in winning the wrestling match against the woman, he is now considered to be a man and is permitted to marry the woman? Does this really ensure that the man will be strong enough to care for and protect his wife?

But now, what happens after a successful match? Do they pay dowry? If yes, how much? What happens when the young man is unable to defeat the woman in the wrestling match? Will, he not be considered by his people to be a man? Is he allowed to marry a woman from a different people-group where a test of strength is not required? If a non-Karamojong man desires to marry a Karamojong woman, Is he also required to go through this ceremony?
