‘the left arm is abusing the right arm when they actually belong to one body’
‘you know sometimes the body rejects a part in the case of transplants’
so went the discussion on this weeks news item ‘poverty stricken’ reaction of hon. gladys wanga to ‘hon’. mutahi ngunyi’s analysis of the ‘lord of poverty’. still in this week Meru town was ‘brought to a stand-still’ by a man from the lake seeking the hand of one of their girls in marriage. one jared otieno, a business man flanked by hon. james orengo and hon. prof. anyang’ nyong’o. in attendance was the hon. peter munya governor Meru county and hon. kiraitu murungi senator Meru county. hon. gladys wanga and jared otieno hail from homa bay county… some say ‘hon’.mutahi ngunyi from Meru county
‘poverty stricken mar meru’
that was hon.gladys wanga’s tweet to ‘hon’.mutahi ngunyi. it is vernacular for ‘poverty stricken your mother’ it is intended as an insult not that i think political scientist ‘hon’. mutahi ngunyi was insulting by pointing out the obvious.
“Are LUOs poor? No idea.THEY SHOULD TELL US. Are there POVERTY STRICKEN LUOs. YES. Statistics: 82% of people in BONDO live below poverty line”
its most famous son, raila amolo odinga the leader of opposition is to him ‘lord of poverty’;
Hon. kiraitu murungi was Lord. Rt. Hon. Dr. raila amolo odinga’s lawyer during the latter’s residence at kamiti maximum security prison and once pleaded with the ‘lord’ to eat during a determined fast to the death. during the business man jared otieno’s trip to Meru he spoke;
‘“A long time ago, the Ameru did not let their daughters get married to Luos. They used to worry about what they will eat in Nyanza, because they thought there was only fish, which they did not like”
“Imenti South and Nyanza South are getting cosy as far as marriages go. It is good, because it is a way of bringing tribes together”
again, hon. gladys wanga’s
– ‘poverty stricken mar meru”:
poverty stricken your mother
poverty stricken belongs to your mother
poverty stricken belongs to (a)meru
poverty stricken is the mother-in-law to your mother
poverty stricken spoil/ ruin/ damage your mother
poverty stricken spoil/ ruin/ damage (a)meru
(wo)man is to err; it could have been over zealousness in conciliation resulting in a typo. We forgave a former minister of finance a few million shilling typing error and are eternally patient with hon. moses kuria. in all innocence i suppose it was a minor NON-ISSUE misunderstanding. (sorry, i couldn’t resist ).
in the context of the weeks events and the opening to this article the hon. gladys wanga’s tweet must have been intended to be
‘poverty stricken marry meru’
there is a residual evidence of an insult even in this however, involved parties and participants should agree to dis agree on
poverty stricken marry your mother –
i.e. your father is poverty stricken.
i mean without (
innuendingkizungu ni ngumu!) implying that your mother is promiscuous …
lets say she is unfortunate.
poverty stricken marry (a)meru –
luo marry (a)meru…
‘jared otieno’ marries ‘kendi mwiti’
interestingly ‘kendi’ means ‘alone’ or ‘get married’
you realise this could go on … and on.. and on….
energised by ignorance, arrogance ….and ..and.. and…
…i’m tired, you decide
