Description

Let's turn to our special series on the Borana community in southern Ethiopia. Under a system of governance known as Gadaa, representatives from five royal lineages prepare for leadership. Each cycle lasts for eight years. At the start of a new era eligible candidates are judged on physical fitness, wisdom and cultural knowledge. The election process which is done at night and in secret has given the Borana community a new leader. CGTN's Coletta Wanjohi shines a light on the newly elected leaders who seeks to defend the communities' ancient tradition.
