Nairobi Women Are Polluted, Says Ole Kamwaro

Nairobi Women Are Polluted, Says Ole Kamwaro

Nairobi Women Are Polluted, Says Ole Kamwaro

Former Traffic and Licensing Board chairman Hassan ole Kamwaro, 69, last weekend married his 22 year old bride Eunice Sossion as his third wife.
In an interview by the Nairobian, Kamwaro had some harsh criticism of Nairobi women when he was asked why he went back to the village for a wife instead of marrying one who is a bit older and is from the city.
Kamwaro when asked whether he does not like Nairobi women responded”
“That’s not exactly true. However, like most other men, I cannot marry a woman from Nairobi.
For Nairobi women, infidelity is the order of the day. If you marry one, what are you marrying? Every day they are dating and getting dumped because they cannot keep a man. I wanted a typical Maasai from the interior. You see this type of lady is not polluted.
In Nairobi, you marry a highly educated woman and she will sit on you. She will never give you the happiness you want in marriage.
And so you will tell young Nairobian men willing to marry to go back to the village to get wives?

Yes. However, this does not mean that I don’t want Nairobi women to be married. But to be honest, a good number of single ladies in Nairobi are almost prostitutes.”
When he was asked why he thinks marriages involving Nairobi women are failing, he replied:
“Obviously, the changing culture is the greatest culprit.  Our Nairobi ladies are becoming slaves of the western world.
This is why despite even scrambling to go to churches to be prayed for so that they can get men to marry them, the prayers don’t come true.
About 60 to 70 per cent of the marriages I know which involve Nairobi women, regardless of their tribe are either on the verge of collapsing or have collapsed.”
Here is the full interview in the Nairobian:
The picture swept through social media like a wild bush fire. Former Transport Licensing Board (TLB) chairman Dr Hassan ole Kamwaro, 69, clad in traditional regalia, was standing next to 22-year-old Eunice Sission whom he had just married as a third wife.
Debate was immediate and fierce. Men gloated, saying Kamwaro’s ability to woo a pretty woman 47 years his junior was proof that the much-derided Kenyan man still has some bark after all. Women scoffed, saying the ‘innocent’ girl had made a mistake she would regret and that Kamwaro had merely used his wealth to seduce a girl young enough to be his granddaughter.
They were wrong. Kamwaro and Sission’s story is much deeper and poignant. Away from the limelight, the man who was synonymous for dealing with errant matatu crews has endured unspeakable personal pain in form of death – twice – debilitating disease and betrayal.
But now he has Eunice, the sunflower he hopes will give him comfort and companionship in his sunset years.  She had never been to Nairobi before she met her husband.
“I am enjoying the experience. I am liking this place,” she told The Nairobian.
In a detailed interview, Ole Kamwaro spoke of how he met Eunice, the Class Seven graduate he intends to take for computer classes so she can manage his business, the first time he asked her out and why marrying a Nairobi woman is as good as signing your divorce papers.
You have been married twice, you never get tired of wanting another woman in your life?
My first wife died in 1996. My second wife abandoned me when I was sick and suffering in hospital.
The Maasai have a strong culture. What is it that they look for in a woman before marriage?
We look at the family. One should come from a family with integrity. They should not have a history of being thieves or liars. They should have credibility and good relations with the rest of the community. This is how Maasais get a wife.
Why did you settle for a Maasai and not another tribe?
I am not a tribal person and I could have married from any tribe. Maasais get wives from any tribe although it is harder for other tribes to marry a Maasai woman unless they meet in school – it’s our geographical position. I gave out my daughter to a Kisii man and they are happy together.
Eunice is young and probably has suitors her age, how did you win over her at such an old age?
I am a tough man and I presented myself to her as her best option for marriage.  You see, the problem with you young people is that you take a lady, test and experiment with her sexually and then dump her.
(Eunice told The Nairobian that Ole Kamwaro emerged the best man for her from a list of three other suitors who were her age).
I am not convinced that it was only through your effort…
Someone from her family had leaked information to me that they had a nice lady they wanted me to marry. Although the larger effort to woo her was mine, her family members also assisted in convincing her.
I went to her home early last year and sent people to call her for me.  When she came, I told her about my feelings for her and we dated for a couple of months before I asked for her hand in marriage.
Was it that easy with her family?
The family was very supportive. The only major issue with them is that she is a distant relative of mine.
However, our culture allows us to pay a price in form of a cow so as to be allowed to marry your distance relative.
But you will never be allowed to marry a girl who is closely related to you even if you pay a million cows.
What made you love Eunice?
Eunice took care of me when I was sick without leaving my side.
Importantly, there is her family background, which is very good.
Divorce is not an issue for them because it does not exist in her family’s history.
You are 69 years old and she is only 23, isn’t it odd?
According to my community, we don’t look at the age when marrying. It’s more about family background.
Look at the famous farmer in Narok, Tumpes Ole Kilesi. He is over 70 years of age and has 12 wives. He married his latest wife early this year. She is not even 23 years like my Eunice!
The paramount chief Ole Ntutu had 11 wives. My sister was wife number nine and she married him when she was barely 20 years old.
Even King David in the Bible at his very old age was brought a young tender virgin girl. Maasais are like Israelites.
There are cases of forced marriages. Your wife is just past her teenage years. Was she also willing to marry you?
Absolutely.  These days Maasais rarely force daughters to marry men. However, a lady who respects her family should be convinced when the family requests her to marry a particular man.
A credible woman will want to get a much older man who is mature, not a young person who is still tasting women!
Your children, including the eldest who is almost 50, are they supportive of this marriage? What about your friends and colleagues?
Everybody is supporting my marriage. They are very happy with me. I have never received so much congratulations from my family, friends and colleagues.  Some are even complaining that I failed to invite them for my wedding ceremony.
My children contributed over Sh200,000 for the marriage. They all listen to my wife Eunice. Through her, I am controlling my family.
She is now the  mother of my children regardless of who the biological mother was and they are all very okay with this.
Obviously you and Eunice have differences.
Like any married couple, we have our differences. She loves songs like that of Diamond (a Tanzanian musician) and I love something else. We have agreed to overcome our differences for our happy marriage.
There are lots of women in Nairobi, single and ready to be married. But you choose to go the village to get a wife. It seems you don’t like Nairobi women.
That’s not exactly true. However, like most other men, I cannot marry a woman from Nairobi.
For Nairobi women, infidelity is the order of the day. If you marry one, what are you marrying? Every day they are dating and getting dumped because they cannot keep a man. I wanted a typical Maasai from the interior. You see this type of lady is not polluted.
In Nairobi, you marry a highly educated woman and she will sit on you. She will never give you the happiness you want in marriage.
And so you will tell young Nairobian men willing to marry to go back to the village to get wives?
Yes. However, this does not mean that I don’t want Nairobi women to be married. But to be honest, a good number of single ladies in Nairobi are almost prostitutes.
What do you believe is the reason behind increasing cases of  failed marriages among city couples?
Obviously, the changing culture is the greatest culprit.  Our Nairobi ladies are becoming slaves of the western world.
This is why despite even scrambling to go to churches to be prayed for so that they can get men to marry them, the prayers don’t come true.
About 60 to 70 per cent of the marriages I know which involve Nairobi women, regardless of their tribe are either on the verge of collapsing or have collapsed.
