Demystifying Kenyan Cultures,Traditions ,Taboos,Myths on

According to Wikipedia, Kenya is a diverse country of 69 languages . With all these languages also comes with it a diverse mix of cultures , traditions ,taboos , myths etc . Some of them are outright ridiculous , strange , scary ,reasonable.Most of them were designed by our long gone ancestors  for a series of reasons ranging from well living , relationships , dispute resolutions and they were the strongholds of communities back then,they gave society the way to live.The world has greatly changed,mostly in the last century and Kenya has not been left behind in this new age revolution to the disadvantage or disappearance of these cultures .Truth is , most of these cultural norms have been bypassed by time but they are still some that will withstand the test of human revolution and are here to stay.Modernization has changed essentially all elements of our life but that does not mean we forsake our cultural norms e.g. Marriage , rites of passage(circumcision) , dispute resolution , cultural societal roles , male female relationships , children roles , symbolic gestures etc.
