In Northern Uganda on the border of Sudan is a district called Amuru which is named after its Chief Town Amuru. It is one of the most fertile and mineral rich lands in the region. The name Amuru can be traced back to the Semitic and Hamitic tribesmen who traveled westward from Asiatic Sumeria to the lands of present day Syria, Lebanon and Palestine. From there they entered what is now known as East Africa. In Ethiopia an Omotic tribe named the Amuru still exist and the town Amuru in Uganda is a remnant of the original Moorish Asiatic migrations that brought hundreds of thousands of Moors into Africa.
