From Shem Nyamitta living in the Dutch city of Nijmegen.

I hereby urgently request you my fellow countrymen
to help me because one west African guy is trying to intimidate me
because he want to use my garage to put his things for free but I have
disaggreed with him about this. Hi did this last wednesday the tenth
of march 2010. This is what he told me on the phone at ten in the
evening last wednesday the tenth of march 2010: He said: shem, you do
not know me good, I will show you what am made of, I will kill you, I
swear, I swear, I swear, if am in Nijmegen here I will make sure you
go to the ground,I will kill you, I will scater your meet on the road
he said and he came to my home last vriday the twelth of march 2010 at
eleven in the evening and he repeated the same things to me again in
front of my flat saying to me: Shem I swear,me and him will go to
Africa dead . Below are his mobilephonenumbers: 06-43256536 or
06-84329330. My I countrymen, I would really appriciate it if you
would call this west African guy and warn him for me because he thinks
am alone I have no body to help me. He is from a west African country.
Am constantly walking in fear that he may curry out his threat when I
meet him somewhere. My name is Shem Nyamitta and I live in the Dutch
city of Nijmegen. I have my bigger brother back in kenya who is deaf
and he has four children and am the only one who can help him because
every month I remit some money to them for food and I even have plans
to start a small business for them. My countrymen once again I hereby
urgently request you to help me go out of the country either to
Swisstzerland or America. I really fear for my life and am very
important for my bigger brother back in kenya because am there only
help from poverty and I even have very big plans to put them out of
poverty. Am seruisly contemplating living Holland. I have relatives
there in America but I have no contact with them. Am looking for my
felow kenyans there in America who can help me with a temporary
accomodation untill I find my own place. Am a very hardworking man and
I will even accept a cleaning job to pay for the accomodation. Am a
born again christian and my whole family also are deep in God. My
fellow kenyans pleace help me esacpe this seruis threat on my life.
pleace, save my life. I hope that I have given you enough information
concerning my urgent appeal for help from danger on my life and that I
will hear something possitive from my fellow countrymen.Bye.

My warm geetings to you all,

This is the first time I am encountering this site and being aware of such a noble initiative. I am most happy and wish to get in touch with the global Luo community. My name is Calvince Ochieng from Nyanza, Kenya. May God give us power to pursue all we want under the sun at day time and moon at night. I once again say that I am very pleased to associate with such a wonderful group.

Hi my tribesmen and women,God bless you and all the Luo nation. I was so much impressed when i suddenly found this Luo website, please my relatives I beleaved this is the only mean to communicate and get together once more since we dispersed into six African nations some un known years ago. It was not our faults to be so but it was a God will and for a good reasons He knew. My advice is: don,t throw away your Luo customs and cultures, they are valuable for our coming generations. I have no doubt many of these norms have gone due to environmental effects, especially our belove Language or its phonetic. It may not be easy for those living in the Developed world, but still elders have enough rooms to do somethings to keeps Luo identities alive. we in Bahr Egazal and other surrounding regions are fighting hard against the environment not to give up our identities. We need your supports to extend the battle ground up to where you are. (Juok ke wun) Sudan

This is an Amazing organization and I would Love to help support it. How can I get into direct contact with an official.
Also I am in Gulu working on a book about Luo family. The book is to be a collection of writings from those in the luo community about family. (poems, stories, songs, folk tales ext...) I myself am doing family portraits to add to the book. If there are any Acholi/Luo writers and artists out there that are interested in having their work published. Contact me. I want to help bring some much deserved attention to local writers here! email me [email protected] Apwoyo Matek !
