There are some acts considered to be a taboo among the kisii community. They are as follows;
Circumcised boys going to master bedroom
They believe that once a boy is circumcised, they should not go to their parents bedroom and even their sister’s bedroom.
This shows that once the act is done the boys are mature enough and so they should respect some areas to visit.
At this point the boys are expected to behave in a more mature way and expect their young ones to respect them.
Girls wearing trousers
This is considered to be disrespectful if girls wear trousers, more so those tight ones that shows off their curves. The Kisii man is not supposed to see how blessed you are.
Mothers should not dine in their daughters houses
It is a taboo for mother to enter especially her married daughters house. She also shouldn’t eat chicken at her daughters house as it makes one to be seen as corrupt.
Also going to her daughters house is considered to be a sign of disrespect to their daughters and thus like seeing their daughter’s nakedness.
Fathers too are not expected to set their feet in their married sons houses as it is considered as going to bed with their daughters in-law.
Visiting mother in-laws all the time
Once a young man marries he is not allowed to be frequently visiting his mother in-law all the time as it is considered to be a sign of disrespect to the family.
Unless the situation is unavoidable like funerals or sickness.
