The Paramount Chief of Acholi, Rwot David Onen Acana II is currently stranded in the UK following a worldwide lockdown in a bid to curb the spread of coronavirus pandemic.
However, Rwot David Onen Acana 11 who heads the Acholi Chiefdom is said to have travelled to London for personal business in March before the breakouts of the deadly pandemic virus. He was also scheduled to attend an Acholi convention that was due to take a few weeks ago, but got caught up when countries including the UK started to lockdowns, and flights in and outside the country banned.
The ban came at the height of the Coronavirus pandemic, which has been spreading around the world like wildfire, infecting up to 1 million people and killing thousands more. Countries across the world opted to close their borders to take the virus.
According to the Ker Kwaro Acholi, Prime Minister Ambrose Olaa, the kingdom has been in constant contact with the paramount chief since the lockdown. He says that the subjects of Acholi in London are helping to ensure that he is well.
