The hypothesis of the presence of the former Prime Minister Raila Odinga in a Kikuyu cultural marriage ceremony-NGURARIO has it that time is ripe for inter-tribal dialogue .
Unfortunately the presentations of the groom by Raila underscored the importance of the groom because he should have been presented by a Kikuyu elder with the all important cane “muthigi “.
Has Kamotho Waiganjo gone through the right Kikuyu rites?
The presence of Dr. Mugo may be a reason good enough to believe he has.
However it remains a subject of discussion as to why the presentation of the groom had to be done by Raila who is not even conversant with Kikuyu traditions.
Could Waiguru, Kamotho and the concerned parties have diluted the ceremony with a reason by giving it political undertones?
What did the absence of William Ruto mean politically?
Was Waiguru sending a political message by cat-walking a dilute cultural ceremony?
Could she be placing herself strategically for the 2022 political negotiations by having makuyu and kameno under her lap.
It is a sad state of affair that what should have been a cultural ceremony showcase turned into a political statement.
On the same font may I take this very early opportunity to let all people know that women are never given the rod of authority,…. the last to handle such was Wangu wa Makeri and after she was toppled, Kikuyu men swore never to allow a woman to posses one
