22gigantes.com - The Abaluyia people, who speak Luyia language (Oluluyia), are found all over the world. They form a community of seventeen sub-communities that fundamentally occupy the four counties of western Kenya, namely and alphabetically: Bungoma, Busia, Kakamega and Vihiga. The Abaluyia speak Oluluyia in seventeen dialects as follows: Abatachoni – Olutachoni, Babukusu – Lubukusu, Abakabras – Olukabras, Abawanga – Oluwanga, Abamarama – Olumarama, Abashisa – Olushisa, Abatsotso – Olutsotso, Abanyole – Olunyole, Visukha – Lwisukha, Vidakho – Lwidakho, Vatirichi – Lutirichi, Avalogoli – Ululogoli, Abanyala va Kakamega - Olunyala lwa Ndombi, Abanyala ba Busia – Olunyala lwokhumaachi, Abakhayo - Olukhayo, Abamarachi – Olumarachi and Abasamia – Olusamia. It was my privilege and pleasure to teach Oluluyia to the fans of the language through radio via Olutachoni as a medium of effective communication. The appreciation of the presentations since 2008 has been resounding within and without the Republic of Kenya. It is to this effect that I have decided to compile this dictionary, with a hope that it will enrich Oluluyia of the Mulembe people. During my stint at the Mulembe FM radio station, my practical observation has been that Olutachoni, unlike some of our dialects, cuts across all the Abaluyia, be they from Bungoma, Busia, Kakamega or Vihiga. Its centrality encounters minimal challenge because its popularity has kept rising with time. Why?The secret behind the centrality of Olutachoni lies behind the history of the Tachoni people, who describe themselves as Omwana we Likhanga. They are the Bongomek people, whose ancestor, called Kiboriti (Kiboret – meaning forerunner in Kalenjin), left their Kalenjin community and joined the Abaluyia. As a result, the Tachoni got in touch with many other Luyia sub-communities, hence their ability to have words that come from all the 16 dialects. Linguistically, the Tachoni are at home with the rest of Abaluyia and this has always been my secret of being able to deal with issues from all over Luyialand.
