On Saturday, thousands of the Itesos from Uganda, Kenya, South Sudan, and other parts of the African continent attended the third coronation of the Paramount Chief of Iteso, Paul Sande Emolot Etomeileng. 

Emolot succeeds Augustine Osuban Lemukol Adugala who died in February after his reign of 22 years.

Emolot was enthroned at Soroti Mayor's Garden after a battle with his rival, William Alloch Akol, and others who dragged him to court. On Thursday, the event was given green light when the Attorney General, Kiryowa Kiwanuka said that there was no legal impediment to the coronation of Emolot as Emorimor Papa Iteso. 

URN attended the event and now brings you some of the moments in pictures.
