Nepotism, corruption, tribalism are just some of the things that our country is characterised by. But as the days go by, things are changing.
We have seen many youths, the likes of singer Jaguar, rich kids Robert Momanyi and Steve Mbogo, Boniface Mwangi, Johnstone Sakaja just to mention but a few join politics and we hope that come August 8, Kenyans will translate their love into votes.
Well apart from politics, there are other Kenyans who have gone beyond the tribal borders and married from the Kikuyu tribe despite the stereotypical myths about female species from the mountain region. They are great examples and many have praised them for the bold move.
From Citizen TV’s Willis Raburu to award winning gospel singer Daddy Owen, meet the prominent Kenyans who married Kikuyu women.
