LUO is to follow

Luo is to follow.

They follow their hearts and they become emotional, passionate, romantic or rowdy.

They follow their minds and they pride themselves in scholarly prowess.


‘Jaluo jinga jeuri’

‘jaluo jamach jaraha’


We mustn’t forget but we can’t anyway, they don’t tire of reminding us of their achievements individually or by association. Lupita Nyong’o and Barack Hussein Obama just to mention a few as a highlight of their capabilities; A prophet is never accepted in their home, they say.

Look at them march from a Gor Mahia fc match you never know the results be it a loss, draw or win. They take their frustrations out on the hapless inanimate objects; Kibera railway line. There is a demonstration of a lack of appreciation for abstraction as they descend on prayerful sculptures claiming devil worship. They won’t listen to their demi-god Raila Amolo Odinga and pundits call out the effects of mirages in the political wilderness.


“Don’t throw stones if you live in a glass house”

Apparently, they don’t live in glass houses.


There is talk of Luo ‘North-Nyanza’ and Luo ‘South-Nyanza’. Luo is in dire need of a visionary leadership. What we are hearing is a dealership.  It may be interpreted as impatient impertinence of the young blood.  There is talk of death…


“These Jaruos are mad!”

There shall never be a Luo president!  (… in Kenya).
