WHO IS WHO IN KANO

Updated: Jun 9









II. WHO IS WHO IN KANO



1.Luanda Magere (sidho)-Legendry Luo folklore warrior, military strategist, elite commando, Field Marshall, suicide and dare devil operative. A rival clan tricked him into reconciliatory marriage with the rival clan girl. The rival clan wife then drugged Luanda Magere into deep sleep, where he was assassinated (children's folklore version).





2.Gladys Wanga- Politician, Community Organiser, Women Rep Homa Bay County.




3.Miguna Miguna- Canadian based indefatigable firebrand constitutional and human rights lawyer, politician, seasoned campaigner; (credited with riding into the eye of the storm to act as a lightning rod for opponents that led to calming the waters after hiatus of both 2007/8 elections and 2017 elections). Like in the parable by Jesus Christ(Matthew 25:22-30), Miguna Miguna is not very fond of three things, namely:-

1)the hard task master,

2)those who reap where they do not sow and

3)those who do not speak for the persecuted who cannot speak for themselves .


His story is a bit of like modern day Luanda Magere story (can only be put down when in deep sleep). And he loves the field combat just like his legendary ancestor.
