Bukusu leaders praise Sarika, Khamala's union

By Osinde Obare | Aug 1st 2014 | 1 min read

Webuye, Kenya: Bukusu leaders in Trans-Nzoia County have commended the marriage between Sarika Patel and their tribesman Timothy Khamala.

Speaking in Kitale the leaders, led by former civic leader Nicholas Bwanamu, said such intermarriages are welcome because they will expose the community to diverse cultures and open up their minds.

“It is through such intermarriages that our people will learn how to create wealth through business activities,” Bwanamu said.

They asked the Bukusu council of elders in Bungoma County to visit the couple’s home and conduct a blessing ritual to keep the marriage strong and protect the young family.

They urged Sarika’s parents to stop opposing the union, saying it is within God’s plan and should not be curtailed.

“Let her parents support the marriage and let them live together,” they said.
