Drama in Turkana as family of bride and groom cane each other mercilessly

In Most circumstances, different tribes from Kenya often have the does and don’t whenever a wedding ceremony is about to take place. This is due to the fact marriage is a very important aspect in one’s family and for this reason, some rules have to be followed to the core.

However, in Marsabit, it’s reported that for one to be married, in-Laws from both families have to react by beating or rather Caning each other as a sign of showing that both families are ready to protect the bride who is then given away by her family.



“This is done in our culture and it’s something that is a must whether or not you are around the world, when you need to marry or get married and you’re from this tribe, you must make sure you do this or you will not be taken as one of them in the society and also, you won’t be invited in any meeting attended by men so that’s why you’ll see that one of our own travels all the way from Abro ad just to make sure they come and do this before Marrying or getting married “, he said.


While reacting to this incident, kenyans who took to their different social media accounts to express their opinions and suggestions on the matter have called upon the elders of the region to go away with this tradition. According to the reports given by most Kenyans, they claimed that a wedding shouldn’t involve pain.

However, according to the reports given by a majority of Kenyan, they claimed that there was nothing wrong with this adding that as long as one is not being forced to marry or get married, they should be allowed to do as they please since it’s their culture.
