The formation of the lango Cultural Foundation (LCF) was initiated and a constitution Formulation is still in process. The leader of LCF is known as "WON NYACI”. The wife of WON NYACI is called " AGONG”. The LCF headquarter is called "OT COKERE ME TEKWARO LANGO” located in LIRA CITY . "OT COKERE OWITONG” is the parliament of LCU and its members are called "OWITONG”. The emblem is represented by a set of "RHINO (AMUKA)” which is an instrument of identity and a symbol of cultural heritage.

It is important to note that there are over 148 Registered clans with LANGO CULTURAL FOUNDATION which belong to the LANGO tribe as ethnicity but not all of them subscribe to LCF. its important to note that there are currently conflicts of power between YOSAM ODUR AND ENG. DR. MICHAEL ODONGO OKUNE. In principle, there are 148 clans which prescribe to lango Cultural foundation and one of the heads of these clans called atek omonypel was voted to be the head of LCF
