the Bible ( al-Kitap )
"The more than 750,000 Luo are also known as ‘Nilotic Kavi-
’, for they live both north and south of Kavirondo Gulf, in
southwestern Kenya.   Thus they are the most southerly of the
Nilotic peoples.   They are an agriculture people, living on the
grassy savannah along the shores of Lake Victoria.   Their language
is related to Acholi, Lango, and Lwo, within the Western
Nilotic group of the Eastern Sudanic languages."
