CAIRO TO CAPE TOWN, OVERLAND 15 / .. Photograph by Vittorio Sella A UGANDA NATIVE CARRYING MILK Milk has a very definite connection with social position in Uganda. The dominant class is a pastoral people; the serf class grows crops. The Bahima, or governing caste, rigidly adheres to a diet of milk varied now and then with beef, a custom which is believed to be a relic of life on the plains before the invasion of the south. The milk carrier is a typical Bahima, tall and thin, but having a well-balanced physique. Missionary efforts have prospered in Uganda and thousands of natives have accepted Christianity. The white tunic is usually the badge of a Christian in that protectorate.
