Why Abaluhya Community Will Never Speak in Unison During Election

All this started during the Colonial period,the British played the art of devide and rule on the community by inciting them against each other.

They used Nabongo Mumia who was the Abawanga king to lure the Abaluhya people to collaborate with the Colonial masters, something that was not received well by the Bukusu the largest subtribe of the luhya.

They resisted the rule of Nabongo and the invasion of British within there territory.The Bukusu people were seen as traitors by other subtribe of the luhya.This let to conflicts among the people and later actual wars, example the Chetambe massacre at Webuye where Tachoni subtribe fought with the Bukusu People.

Currently as 2022 politics is nearing already there is division among the key leaders in the Western region.Eugene Wamalwa and Wycliffe Obaranya have ganged up to oppose Musalia Mudavadi and Moses Wetangula as luhya spokesperson's.The rift is already drawn amongst the people of Western by there own leaders.

The enemity that was created by the Colonial government still exists till today, and that is why luhya unity will remain anightmare.
