As the old adage goes, behind every successful man, there is a woman. Former US President Barack Obama is among men who were lucky to marry a strong woman. However, it remains unclear why Obama has been visiting Kenya without his wife yet he is not only married but also has children. Time has come for Obama to marry a second wife and an African for that matter. Does Michelle Obama not love Kenya like her man does? Is she not ready to meet her in-laws from Lakeside so that she can learn some Luopean?
Why did Obama come to Tanzania alongside his wife yet she could not even spare a minute to come home and take Chai or fish at Mama Oliech? There are many questions that remain unanswered whenever Obama jets into the country without the mother of her children. It is evident that Kenyans will have to wait for more years to see the two together?
Traditionally speaking, a man needs to be with his wife when it comes to serious matters such as visiting her in-laws. There is no doubt that elders would want to know her ability to cook nice Ugali and Rech.
Who knows? Probably she does not know how to cook Omena. Being a Luo means you need to know how to prepare delicious meals for your man. Shouldn’t he just get himself another wife?
