Please tell a story about a time when a person or organization tried to help someone or change something in your community:

Be Keenly About Some Advice

It was last year on the month of April. There was a man who came in the community & stayed about two weeks. This man started spreading the tribalism in our community by saying that the Kalenjin people they were suppose not to do work in the community but the Abaluyha people. This makes some people following what he said & the Kalenjin they started backsliding in their economic activities. This totally change the community as some people they leae their farms uncultivated & some of them started depending in the other people. The abaluyha people they do their work with out their effort so that to obtain food and they improve. The Kalenjin they came to realise that they on the other one whom are loosing & eventually they come back for their economic activities. But the steps that the Luhya had taken it was very big compared to kalenjin.
