The recording at the center of this item is a Shilluk song. Kwongo became king after the demise of King Ayang Anay in 1992. King Kwongo built his house in Silki in Omdurman. The women of Takamol went to visit King Kwongo in 1994, when he came to Khartoum. In this song, the composer is saying King Kwongo’s education helped him to know the “Writing of God” meaning the will of God, which means good governance for a king.
