Kisiis are famous for many things. Their bananas, for instance, then there is that not-so-small matter of their short temper.
You have probably heard that you’ll hardly get a Kisii who smokes and that the bride price of a Kisii girl will rise or fall depending on her level of education.
Then there is their patriarchy. The male dominance is such that women rarely rise to elective posts.
But what bedevils Kisiis most is the notoriety of witchcraft, perhaps outpacing Kambas who have to contend with a silver medal.
