Popular religious figure releases controversial list of men who can’t be advised and includes; Amerix followers, Raila’s supporters, and Luo men dating a Kiambu woman among others

In a controversial post that has generated a lot of interest and controversy both in equal measure due to its stereotyping, one of the country’s popular religious figures caused a stir after releasing a potentially offensive list of men he claimed can’t be advised.

Popular online personality Zion Pearl who identifies herself as a believer of Jesus took to Twitter to share the list.
The list included followers of Amerix who has curved a niche for himself as a masculinity activist, and also supporters of Orange Democratic Movement party leader Raila Odinga. Ironically, male feminists were also in the list, and Luo men dating women from Kabete in Kiambu as well. The post read,

Men who cannot be advised: 1. A follower of Amerix. 2. A Luo man in love with a woman from Kabete. 3. A member of the Adams’ Arcade gym. 4. A man who has decided polygamy is not a sin. 5. A man who has attended theology school. 6. A Raila supporter. 7. A male feminist.

The Luos and Kikuyus are historically divergent communities, a situation further accentuated by their huge variances in language, culture, mindset, attitude, belief system and social mores.
Their only point of convergence is in intermarriages: It is common for Kikuyu women to marry Luo men than it was the case at independence when the late Wambui Otieno, mother of four, married the late criminal lawyer SM Otieno-and dispensed with bride price altogether.
This convergence in matrimony, though, is one sided: Kikuyu men don’t rush with equal zeal to marry Luo women…which to most people from Central Kenya is akin to “kujiapisha.”

Evans Karuku, a TV programme producer, blames the two community’s shared political acrimony which “goes back to the era of Jaramogi (Raila’s father) and Mzee Kenyatta (Uhuru’s father). There has never been a good relationship between the two communities even in modern politics and the two hardly unite, making it hard for romantic relationships to thrive.”
Businessman Brian Gitau points out that besides political differences, culture contributes a huge part.

So, why do Luo men prefer marrying Kikuyu women and why do Kikuyu women fall head over heels for men from Luo Nyanza?
Paul Odera, en Events Organizer, explains that Luos are mostly dark skinned and the light complexion of sisters from Central Kenya is one factor.
“Their yellow-yellow colour drives us crazy. We cannot resist a Kikuyu woman. Second, they’re hardworking and enterprising and will help you grow your business. Since Luo men don’t care much about money, a Kikuyu woman will multiply it for the family,” he says.
