Are Luo ladies increasingly becoming unmarriageable.
By Onyango O
I’ve heard so many complaints from my friends on this increasing trend of marrying women from other tribes by the Luo bourgeois, with David O Osiany case being the latest case ( kindly the couple are in honeymoon ,don’t discuss them here, it’s just a reference point )
And people are asking : is the problem with Luo ladies or Luo men, who are now being accused of developing a penchant for brownies! Kwani aren’t their brown Luo ladies?
This is my opinion:
There is a problem with our ladies. And the problem is character. A dilemma between intelligence and Wisdom .A dilemma between strength and weakness.
Like I said once, Luo ladies are intelligent. Luo ladies are strong and forceful in character. And that is not the problem. The problem is in application. Possessing knowledge and applying knowledge to solve life problems are two different things .Wisdom is the appropriate application of knowledge. Where wisdom is lacking knowledge is bullshit. You’ll just be shouting : you won’t play with my mind ! Try elsewhere ! I’m not a fool! , and such other kinds of noises even as your character remains despicable.
Having strength is one thing ,applying strength towards life goals is totally another. Look at how bouncers negatively apply their physical strength . Love is strength and weakness amalgamated. You must know where and when you have to be strong and where and when you’ve to capitulate. Luo ladies have a knack for fighting men, instead of using their energies to care for their families.
Luo ladies share a weakness with their men : loving living life in the first lane with a little commitment for hard work. Fortunately, our men are changing .They are becoming more hardworking and ambitious. Going for evening classes and buying land, for example. But majority of our ladies are still warped in old mentality of pleasure without work. Mwanaume ni wallet ideology . Very sad.
As a man the degree to which you’ll succeed in life is critically determined by the kind of a lady you marry. She must be supportive to the extent humanly possible. Together you must make sacrifices when conditions call for that .
Some Luo ladies are a little irresponsible and lazy .Even in love making .While they know that their men are energetic and have roving eyes. Fail to satisfy that man in bed and the next day he will get Abandu. Then you start making noise.
Beauty in a woman without character is like a golden ring on the snot of a pig. Our women must understand that the function of beauty is merely facilitative. It facilitates and maintains selection. It is not therefore something to be boastful about ,nor a weapon in marriage.
In short ,our ladies must change.
Ingroup marriage concentrates resources within the group. Marrying from outside robs the community of the resources it critically needs to develop.
Our ladies must help change this trend. Seduce back your men.
