Title:The role of chiefs and headmen among the Lugbara of West Nile district, Uganda
Author:Middleton, J.ISNI
Periodical:Journal of African Administration
Geographic term:Uganda
Abstract:This area has until recently been little involved in the main economic and political development of the rest of the Protectorate. Chiefs play roles which are new and for which Lugbara have no place in their conception of their own society. For them chiefs are the creatures of the Europeans, who stand for and are held responsible for all the destructive aspects of the process of social change that they are now undergoing. Headmen have some place in the traditional system but they cannot play the role associated with it and at the same time be efficient administrative functionaries.
