In the original comic it was quite fitting. After all, it were the Pale Ones who sent Uru the skin of her beloved as a form of a twisted mockery, so there was some morbid but poetic justice in her delivering them punishment, wearing Kipendo's skin. Meanwhile in the book... it just doesn't make any sense. As much as Uhuru tries to pin Lochan's death on the Pale Ones, the white lions didn't even have a clue that Lochan existed. They literally had nothing to to with him and his demise! However, the most insulting was the part where Uhuru and her bonechewer insisted that wearing Lochan's skin is the right thing to do, even though Lochan never consented to this. I mean, it wasn't even something acceptable in the culture he came from! It's like a cannibal insisting that eating your deceased friend is OK because you don't know everything about the different kinds of meat that sausages are made of. Oh, and lest's not forget that earlier Uhuru was disgusted with ritual scarification and now, suddenly, is on board with wearing scalps. Looks like she's tolerant and understanding toward different cultures only when it may benefit her directly.
