MANY PEOPLE DONT KNOW WHY RAILA ODINGA TOOK OVER LUHYA LEADERSHIP AFTER THE DEATH OF THE LAST UNITED LUHYA LEADER WAMALWA KIJANA.
During the burial of Wamalwa Kijana in Kitale many leaders attended that burial and this is how they attended that burial.
MUSIKARI KOMBO came with a bakora
EUGINE WAMALWA came with a fullscap with a speech.
MUSALIA MUDAVADI came with greetings from Moi
CYRUS JIRONGO came with big cars and well built men in the name of body guards.
When Raila came he was adorned in an animal skin head gear and animal skin top with a spear and an arrow behind him were 15 well built bulls for slaughter in that funeral.
On that day the burial turned into frenzy and since that day the leadership mantle of the luhya people was taken by RAILA AMOLO ODINGA great great grand son of Wanga. And it will remain so.
That reminded me of the story of Jacob and Esau from the holy book!
I was young but I can vividly remember this while I only watched on TV!!
