A look at some of Kenya's tribal communities;

* Kenya's 36 million strong population are split into more than 40 ethnic groups, each unique with its own strong identity, traditions and languages.

* Kikuyu is the largest group, dominating 22 per cent of the population, while Luhya takes up 14 per cent, Luo 13 per cent and Kalenjin 12 per cent.

* President Kibaki is from the Kikuyu tribe. His group comes mainly from the agriculturally rich central highlands and wields strong economic power.

* Opposition Leader Raila Odinga is a Luo from western Kenya.

* Many Luos feel they've been politically cheated by Kikuyus over Kenya's turbulent history. Odinga's father, Jaramogi Oginga Odinga, fell out with founding President Jomo Kenyatta, a Kikuyu, within three years of 1963 independence.

* Former Preisdent Daniel arap Moi is from the Kalenjin group, which has produced most of the nation's famous long distance runners.Moi's allies were blamed for the 1989 assassination of rising Luo politician, Robert Ouko. The case was never resolved.

*Meanwhile the Maasai, which is one of Kenya's most popular tribes because of its tourism market, only makes up a little over 1 per cent of the population. The Maasais believe God gave them all the cattle on earth and were entirely dependent on the creatures alone for centuries. It's believed many people in the tribe still live on just milk and fresh blood.

* Ethnic rivalries often worsen during election time. The worst incidents were recorded in 1992 when some 1,500 people died in tribally tinged land clashes in the Rift Valley region. In 1997 another 200 were killed in the resort town of Mombasa.

Tribal politics is dangerous.As we have seen in Kenya recently and other African countries. We Africans should refrain from this kind of divisive politics that eventually destroy human life and suppress the goodwill of Humans. It is time to detribalise. Dividing and ruling the various tribes in Kenya, based on their cultural differences was a colonial tool. We defeated the colonialist, yet, 45 years later we are still hangovered.

Kama siku hiyo ikitokea nitapenda kumwona jinsi jirani yangu yule msukuma anavyochapana na mkewe pamoja na shemeji zake wachagga. Halafu sijui watoto wao watashabikia upande gani.

Nyinyi mnaelekea kwa CCM vs Chadema, one way or another Tz will experience some unrest and it is not a matter of if but when. We ngoja SGR ikuwe white elephant, unaona drimulaina imeshindwa kuchanja mawingu hata ya ndani ya Tz ama any East African country, unaona Lamu port inakamilika na Bagamoyo bado kaunza wala kuzinduliwa, vinyereezi na steiglers gorge bado pia...hapa ndipo waTZ watakasirika KUWAGEUKIA KINA Geza Ulole and co na kusema enough is enough and believe me the most peaceful sleeping giant will awaken sending shock waves throughout the world.
