Larry Madowo: I was warned against marrying a Kikuyu girl after what had happened to rugby player Mike Okombe

Larry Madowo is perturbed by how tribalism as taken root in Kenya since August 8th. The NTV anchor reveals that he was warned against marrying a girl from Kikuyu tribe.

Larry cautions that Kenya has taken the same route Rwanda took in 1994 when nearly 1 million people were massacred because of tribal hatred.

The NTV anchor visited Kigali Genocide Memorial on Thursday November 16th. Larry says everybody will be affected if Kenya descends into anarchy.

“If the country goes to hell, it will burn for Jubilee and Nasa supporters equally. It won’t matter whether you voted for Uhuru or Raila or didn’t vote at all. Whether you are part of the Opposition’s supposed militia force or fully behind the ruling party’s ethnic cleansing brigade, the day of reckoning is coming.

“Last week, I went back to the Kigali Genocide Memorial where more than 250,000 victims of the Genocide against the Tutsi in Rwanda are buried. A part of the history of the 1994 killings jumped at me this time even though I had done the same tour seven years ago,” Larry wrote on his column on Daily Nation.

Larry Madowo went to pay my respects to nearly 1 million people massacred in Rwanda in 1994 at the Kigali Genocide Memorial.

Cautionary tale

Larry says ‘concerned’ Kenyans warned him against marrying a lady from Kikuyu tribe. He reveals that the warning came following the deaths of Mike Okombe and Captain Apollo Malowa.

The fallen Nakuru Top Fry rugby player was stabbed to death by his girlfriend Maryanne Wamboi. Malowo died in Lake Nakuru chopper crash.

“A fortnight ago, a friend wanted me to translate a Facebook post in Dholuo for them. It turned out it had been posted on my page and warned me against marrying a Kikuyu girl after what had happened to the pilot of the chopper that crashed in Nakuru and rugby player Mike Okombe.

“The hundreds of comments below it all urged me to take the two cases as a cautionary tale and not marry outside the community. Many supporters of Nasa’s Resist campaign have added “resisting Njeri” as one of the tenets and it is almost dismissed as a joke.

“The first of the Hutu commandments outlawed relations with Tutsi women and we all know how that ended. ‘Every Hutu should know that a Tutsi woman, whoever she is, works for the interest of her Tutsi ethnic group. As a result, we shall consider a traitor any Hutu who marries a Tutsi woman, befriends a Tutsi woman, or employs a Tutsi woman as a secretary or concubine,’ it admonished,” wrote Madowo.

    Larry ask babu owino for an advise

    • Njoki Macharia : November 24, 2017 at 8:29 am

      Larry seriously. This was not necessarily unless you have an internal conflict. What advice would you give to those who are already married from the region.Find out if it is the joy of parents from that region to give their daughters over the years yet no one has posted this . Give us a break Larry.

  19. Yeah. Let’s stick to our communities there was a kikuyu lady working for NTV who was killed by a luo man. Who can remember. Wambui kabiru and Moses Otieno Dola?

  20. With all due respect…. No one applied to be a luo kikuyu or whatever the tribe you are.

  21. What about this Larry? If we go that way then there will be no cohesion at all, things happen and we cannot take it to reflect the whole community. Anyway style up when posting such

  22. Just tell us you proposed a Kikuyu lady and you got yourself rejected wacha story miiingi! We don’t marry likes of you Madomo nkt!.

  23. huh…sijui watu wataacha upuzi na ujinga lini.some people have very small mentalities and can never think beyond their noses…its alright whoever thinks tribe has business here.i am so happy with my kisii girl.wewe kabila pelekea Joseph Kabila maybe he will understand your shallow minds,and am particularily disappointed by you Larry if u can buy this crap or pay attention to it.some of us admire your hustle so should be in the frontline condemning this ideologies.

  24. Kikuyu ladies are very handworking and bright ladies that’s why you always talk bad things about them but remember no one is pure them God didn’t create us as Kikuyu to be bad when one did wrong your not supposed to judge all of us

  25. The ladies actually make the bestwives

  26. Get Jesus Christ. Stop tribalism. Dont judge people by tribe. Your children will intermarry,after Raila and Ouru are long forgotten.Preach STOP TRIBALISM NOW.

  27. Stay away from Kikuyu my brother and thank me later

  28. If you want to maintain your generation please avoid them,because your gray hair may not catch you with them.

  29. Marry ur sister then stupid larry

  30. Madowo what you’re circulating in social media its not good now that our country is shaking and if it means falling we gonna fall allovers,getting married is not a matter of a tribeyou might even marry from your tribe but your world overturned into hell by that lady am a pround gikuyu lady and am not planning to marry any of gikuyu men,preach peace for now

  31. Stereotypes ,stereotypes,…this is a question of a black kettle calling the next cardboard kettle too black.

    Sad day to even discuss this.

    The discussion should just end by saying.

    We resisted thoughts of genocide as happened in the past Rwanda.

    Whom you marry,where,when,what,how,from where,to whom ,tall,short,wide,slender,from.whom.

    Is just but a question of personal desire n preference.

    # resist tribalism.

  32. All of you who are castigating Larry have shallow minds to understand what he is trying to put across.Larry is trying to relate the Rwandan genocide to our current situation in Kenya.this tribal hate we got extending to even warnings against tribe to marry is what happened in Rwanda. The hate got deep rooted and when hell broke loose the intermarried couples got killed. Larry’s point is that this tribal thing has escalated to the disturbing heights and even prejudice is meted out on marriages…this is how a genocide starts.

  33. U think most of u don’t the get the picture here
    Lary is being adviced not to tangle with a kikuyu but he doesn’t share the same ideologies as his so called “advisors” so stop critiquing him n get the story straight

  34. Most of the people commenting here have not understood Larry’s message….please read it well to truly understand what he is passing across…..I appreciate what he is saying!

  35. this is a comparison of two events…. not hate speech

  36. Av realized that pple here rush to write back instead of understanding what Larry is saying,be keen readers n understand the message before u start yapping around just bcz u hate someone because he is way better than u.
