Article By Ken Ouko, lecturer, University of Nairobi.
Ken Ouko's article reduces him to a ying' yang' hypothetical intellectual arse kisser, as opposed to other Luo intellectuals/scholars whom we have read their personal views about our traditional /cultural dogma and egocentricisms concerning the on going Moi's succession debate.Ouko's argument is rather apathetic and lucks no reasonable fling.However, U.K. being a political novice, may want to take the 3 million pounds his mother just withdrew from a Swiss Bank and give it all to Ken.

"Mungiki is a politically motivated wing of a religious organisation," says Ken Ouko, a lecturer of sociology at the University of Nairobi.
Sociologist Ken Ouko says the Mungiki sect seem to have managed to address a social and spiritual hunger among the young slum dwellers which the church and the state have failed to feed:

"Dating online is pretty awesome, but you can't rely on it as you don't know the person," a woman in her twenties says.
"Some of the Western people you meet on these websites are very weird, so you have to be very careful lest you meet someone who's really weird sexually and intellectually."
But just like other signs of modernity, internet dating may soon be widely accepted.
Ken Ouko, a sociology professor at the University of Nairobi, says this is likely to make life more for young adults in the long run.
"It is more difficult to build a relationship and develop trust with someone you meet out of the blue," he says.

"By definition shaking hands is part of the informal rules of society, more so as one of the mutually acceptable and acknowledged common social habits which have evolved into being a tradition and way of life," says Dr Ken Ouko, a sociologist at the University of Nairobi.
According to Dr Ouko, within diplomatic circles a handshake is a symbol of unity.It denotes the coming to an agreement, consensus or compromise at the end of a confrontation or discussion.
"This is a deeply entrenched tradition and even the fiercest or most critical of protagonists and foes cannot run away from it.The symbolic gesture is popular, especially among presidents or corporate bigwigs.Whenever they pose for photographs, they prefer to be captured shaking hands," says Dr Ouko.
For many people, especially those not acquainted, mere verbal introduction or just saying ‘hello' does not make the same impression as reaching out to someone and shaking their hand," says Dr Ouko.
The sociologist attributes the acceptance of the gesture to what he refers to as the principle of "folkways".
He explains: "These are social rules which however, are not enforceable.Those that can be enforced are described as norms.The latter are unspoken rules that the society is expected to abide by and embrace without raising questions.They have been transferred from one generation to another and have gradually acquired the status of being popular social habits," he notes.
"They would contort their faces to reflect familiarity or failure to recognise an individual," says Dr Ouko.
"It does not make much sense, for instance, to keep on shaking hands with a girlfriend, husband or even your child because you relate to the individuals at a different, hence deeper level rather than a casual one," says Dr Ouko.
