About Njovu Clan    |     Clan administration

Enjovu;

Pronounciation : eh~njo~vu

English translation : Elephant

The Elephant is the totem for the Njovu clan.

"Buganda's clan system is central to its culture. A clan represents a group of people who can trace their lineage to a common ancestor in some distant past. In the customs of Buganda, lineage is passed down along patrilineal lines. The clan essentially forms a large extended family and all members of a given clan regard each other as brothers and sisters regardless of how far removed from one another in terms of actual blood ties. The Baganda took great care to trace their ancestry through this clan structure."
