Family Curses; Fact Or Fiction?
Listing #471 by KenyanList Archives on 25/08/2020    Viewed 33 times . Replied to 0 times . Printed 0 times

Some time back, a friend of mine was at loggerheads with his folks due to a choice he had made. This involved a girl he had proposed to and the parents did not find her worthy of having their son.
This whole issue brought about the parents having their stand whereby they told their son that if he proceeded to marry the girl, he would not have their blessings and that his family would be cursed.
He later on went ahead and married the chic in a private function recently, beating the parents threat.
My question is, we being in the year 2009, is it really valid for us to still believe in family curses? We have already left the traditional african culture and have embraced Christianity and Islam, so should we really be scared when an elder member of the family unleashes cruel future aspects for us?
Are curses real and do they really affect the cursed?

I remember one story which happened back home.
Some dude who had grown up @ ocha went to Nai and made it big, and married and got kids.Unfortunately, after making it big, he conveniently decided to forget about his mum.His mum kept on send messages to the effect that she wanted to hold the product of her milk, i.e the grandchildren.One day, the son went and bought a whole crate of milk and in the accompaniment of the wife and children went to the mothers place.Hne was the only one who alighted from the the care and gave the milk to someone else to take to the mother if all what she was complaining about was her milk.when the mother heard this she cried and spat on the ground.The entire family never made it back to Nairobi!!.They had an accident and only the man and his wife died.The kids were raised by their grandmother, i.e, the dudes mum!!
