The above report is false because the Ambororo are nomadic pastoralists who have been coming to Wau town for trading purposes and some of them reside within the town, they have been selling cattle and other animal products for years within Wau town and cohabit friendly with the host community. the issue of old men dying and turning into cattle is just an old myth that has no facts.
