On Wednesday, September 8, Nairobi County Women’s Representative Esther Muthoni Passaris excited the crowd when she urged people to join the ODM to get the love of the Luo.
While trying to persuade Mount Kenya residents to support Orange Democratic Movement Party leader Raila Odinga, Passaris said the Luo men knew how to love.
According to a women’s representative, joining a party meant that they would receive true love.
Let me tell you, Luo men know how to love. While most Kikuyu women are looking for love, they know where to go. So what I mean is that when you come to ODM you will receive true love, ”Passaris said with applause as the crowd cheered for him.
Passaris made the remarks during a speech at the Orange House when Raila Odinga received rebels from other parties.
The sentiments of the 56-year-old politician could be detrimental to common discrimination.
On social media, Luo men seem to be greedy, and their taste for the best things in life sometimes misleads many girls into believing that life is a rose bed without thorns.
Over the years, they have been linked to excessive dating.
And Passaris is not the only politician asking for this opinion.
A few years ago, the governor of Meru, Kiraitu Murungi, made a similar comment during a marriage between Luo and Kikuyu. Kiraitu expressed shock when people from Luo came to the wedding in style after arriving at the scene by helicopter.
He then praised the Luo, saying, “No Meru man can take care of a woman like a Luo. In Meru, men focus on land acquisition, but a Luo man puts more emphasis on his wife’s happiness. Luo should be applauded!
Even women have repeatedly expressed their reasons for favoring the lake brothers.
Speaking to Nairobian, Loise Wairimu, a computer technician, said she found the Luo without restraint for two reasons.
“Firstly, Luo are good people in bed and have more waste than our men and secondly, they go the extra mile in a relationship. Luo’s man will make you feel like you’re just in a relationship even if you are. When you meet him he already uses sweet words like baby, honey, my wife, which is very romantic.
Wairumu also said they were the best sellers in making sure that “you have what you need and are gentlemanly so we love them, but our Central brethren don’t care much for fairness.”
Rachel Wangeci, a sales representative, admitted and said that her brothers in central Kenya had not been diligent in relationships and when “you go into her box” she treated you like a woman who is her five children.
“Having sex is not in their dictionary, they behave like their fathers treated their wives. Luo men strive to celebrate things and treat you well even in bed,” she explained.
