About the Edition

Unbeknownst to most people, the Luyia tribe is a congeries of Luo, Maasai, Kalenjin and Bantu tribes. Established more than 70 years ago, the Luyia tribe is relatively new by historical standards. It has 18 sub tribes of closely related linguistic and cultural septs but the political unity among these sub tribes has eluded the Luyia tribesmen since the founding of the super ethnic polity.

Moreover, you will rarely find a man or woman from Luhyaland divorcing a wife or husband. As a result, ladies from this region of Kenya are regarded the most admired. Most people from within and outside the Luhya nation refer them as wife material. Sources further claim that women from this area don’t mind getting a beating from the male spouses. The Samia are a sub-tribe of the Luyia community that straddles the Kenya-Uganda border; Barasa is happy with the response so far.
