The Seven Types of Men You will meet in Nairobi

wanga jeff1. The hustler: This guy can move mountains to get a dime. He does not believe in Jubilee creating opportunities, he creates them. He can easily sell tropical sweets in a matatu or grab a kasuku with water on a rainy day to clean people’s shoes. This guy may not fit your ‘ideal’ description of a man- Rich, dark and handsome- and you may not hesitate to undermine his worth as a man the moment he asks for your number. He has seen poverty but is desperate to get out through hard work. He is also skilled in bedminton activities.

Disclaimer: Deodarant is a native word to him and an ideal date is chapo ndondo kwa kibanda.

Residence: Githurai 45, Eastleigh, Kawangare, Kibera, Mathare North, Ruaraka

Verdict: Ten years from the rejection date, the guy lives large and is wealthy by all standards because he understands the basic rule of life- eat from thy sweat! This guy can make a very good husband.

2. The Deal guy: This guy is always making deals you will never understand. He owns two or three phones just in case one goes off and deal ichomeke. He is never available and can cancel your date anytime because deals can come anytime- even at midnight. Most of them are high skilled brokers who can sell anything under the planet. They brag to be in touch with who is who in Nairobi and sometimes have photographic evidence as their whatsapp profile picture. If you fancy having some quiet time off with this man, forget it. He is never available and is as mean as a miser- MPESA ni wewe!

Disclaimer: Ten years down the line, the guy still sits at the Hilton Hotel benches waiting for a kadeal to come through.
Residence: Highrise, Embakasi, Pangani, Kasarani

Verdict: Run as hell away from this guy unless you are in the same industry as him!

3. The Suit guy: Dude is always suited up with a baggy suit (Kenyan men do not value fitting suits) and a striped tie that costs him a 100 bob from Njugush the hawker. He is probably a lawyer hired in a firm- though he can’t confess this to you for ego maintenance reasons. He could be an insurance guy in the CBD who believes he will be earning a 500k commission soon with his aggressive sales skills. He could also be working in the Ngo world and has just bagged a loan to buy a white Toyota Premio .
Disclaimer: He is boring to the bone and his ideal conversation is sportpesa and mcheza, his boss and the company he works in. His ideal date is any Java in the CBD so at least he can prove that he has finally joined the middle class. Musings!

Residence: South B, South C, Waiyaki Way, Gumba, Roysambu

Verdict: Girl, you decide for yourself…sisemi kitu!

4. The social media guy: I can write a whole thesis on this! He is a loaded mummy’s boy who brags and trolls Nairobi with his mummy’s ride. The word ‘work’ does not exist in his dictionary! This guy can take ten selfies a day and share in all social media platforms: Twitter, facebook and instagram. Me thinks he is the one who created hashtags since all his pics have crazy hashtags like #flyguy don’tcare# or #chillingwithchurchillatcarninasiringi#
The picture locations could range from Serena hotel to Intercontinental hotel even though the Java logo is firmly rooted on the background. Kubafu! Goodness Gracious! And he dares seat at the table of men! How now! Babylonians from the Biblical times should just resurface and throw this guy in a den of lions!

Discaimer: The word ‘work’ does not exist in his dictionary!

Residence: Westlands, South B, South C, Nairobi West, Langata, Runda

Verdict: If you enjoy sleek rides and selfies, welcome to his den!

5. The ambitious Kikuyu guy: Kikuyu men’s ambitions know no boundaries, just cross over and ask Magufuli guys and you will be surprised by their response

Journalist: Ndugu,ebu niereze uhusiano wenu na ware wakikuyu wa Kenya?

Tanzanian: aai I say ware si watu! Wananyakua kira kitu mpaka mashamba zetu,jamani Magufuri asiwaruhusu waharibu ujamaa wetu!

I respect the hustling and Biashara spirit of the Kikuyu man. Dude can hawk fried eggs and wouldn’t care less how you view him! He can’t sleep hungry and rarely complains about how hard life is. He gives life no excuse to put him down, whether educated or not!

Disclaimer: He rarely sees the importance of spending quality time with his woman. He will not accept ‘losses’ just so you can cuddle with him! Forget it. Do not expect a wedding from him, a come- we -stay is affordable and ideal for him. He will pay your dowry when you turn 50!

Residence: anywhere in Nairobi as long as the rent is affordable because he has to save up cash for the piece of land read kafroti in Kahawa West

Verdict: You can never sleep hungry in his house. He will provide by all means possible- dubious and legal.

6. The Married guy: This guy no longer hides the fact that there is a missus in the house with his two lovely kids and pregnant with the third born. He does not remove his ring anymore in his attempt to get your number. Why? The ring is the magnet to Nairobi girls.
He provides cash and cash in plenty and takes you to secluded restaurants aka lodgings outside Nairobi so as he is not spotted by his wifes’ friends who will report him to the Nairobian as fast as a wink.

He does not use protection, why should he? It’s your responsibility to buy a P2 pack after he has feasted on you..haiya… Woe unto you if you get pregnant and refuse to yield to his demands of aborting the child on a backstreet clinic somewhere in River road, he will gomteja on you and my friend you will join the single mothers club as you formulate a good alibi regarding the whereabouts of your married absentee baby daddy (since the kid will ask you one day anyway)

Jane: Mum but where is daddy? How come Alice and John have a daddy and I do not.

Mum: (Angry at why that P2 did not work) Your father died in Somalia fighting the Alshabab. He is a hero and is smiling at you right now from heaven)

Residence: All over Nairobi

Disclaimer: Date him at your own risk!

Verdict: This relationship is not for happiness and yes he will not leave his wife since that divorce lawyer is always out of town.…

7. Sponsor: previously known as sugar daddy and mostly prefers young ladies between the ages of 20 and 30. He rains cash  but is never available emotionally. He can go out of the way and even get you a sleek car(he keeps the log book though) but his main agenda is to release his testosterone tension on you or to be seen as a ‘man’ by the society. You are just a toy like any of his cars and he can replace you as fast as you can finish a 50mb  data on You tube.

Residence: Hata mimi sijui!

Disclaimer: Aids is real!

Verdict: You have a national ID and a brain- use them wisely!

Chill out for part two of this post!

Be a wise woman! I love you…

Moi university students riot over absence of lecturers

 Moi University students in Eldoret, rioted on Wednesday against the two-month absence of lecturers over a salary dispute.

The West campus students destroyed a bus and threw stones at buildings before anti-riot police were called in, arresting more than 30 of them.

The university’s director of the Privately Sponsored Students Programme, who is also in charge of the campus, said the problem was being addressed.

“We know property has been destroyed but we are meeting to tackle issues raised by the students,” Daniel Tarus said.

The campus, which has more than 2,000 students in parallel degree programmes, will remain open as the issues are resolved, he said.

Security officers at the campus roughed up journalists in a bid to keep them from taking pictures at the college. They were told to seek authorisation before taking any pictures.

Student leader Kipng’eno Ruto faulted the university for not paying lecturers, saying more than Sh200 million in school fees was collected.

“The lecturers say they have not been paid for months and some are owed up to Sh2 million in arrears. We are wondering why they are not being paid yet we have paid fees,” Ruto said.

“The country and our parents must know we are being ‘wasted’ yet parents paid fees. Corruption is running the university; money meant to pay lecturers is stolen by senior officials.”

Ruto said lecturers should be paid so that they resume work by Friday, failure to which there would be more riots.

He noted that students had not sat their end semester exams and raised questions about the graduation of fourth years.

The university’s students rioted for the same reason in 2014 and threatened to join their lecturers in a strike to demand pay.{facebookpopup}

Five officers injured in Mandera road crash

Five police officers are nursing injuries after they were involved in a road accident in Mandera.

Mandera County Police Commander Job Boronjo said the officers from the General Service Unit were returning to Mandera when the vehicle they were traveling in rolled several times on Saturday evening.

“Five officers suffered minor injuries but are in stable condition and are admitted at Mandera Referral Hospital,” said Mr Boronjo.

He said the vehicle’s steering developed mechanical problem before rolling several times on the Mandera-Rhamu road.

“The officers were returning back into Mandera after escorting the morning buses when the incident happened,” said Mr Boronjo. The accident occurred 15 kilometres to Mandera Town.

Security officers have been escorting buses plying the Mandera-Nairobi route since January 2015 after Al-Shabaab militants hijacked a bus and killed 28 people on their way to Nairobi on November 22, 2014.

“We have towed the vehicle to our police station from the scene and we shall continue providing armed police escort to the buses despite the accident,” said Mr Boronjo.

The police escort from Mandera town handover the buses to their Elwak counterparts for the remainder of the journey.

“Records are showing soft tissue injuries which is not so alarming but once they are examined by the doctor on duty they will be discharged,” said a nurse who requested not to be name

Woman from Kenya dies after ‘jumping’ from a building in Jordan

Kenyan lady who had been working in Jordan was last week found dead even as 17 others cry out for help to be brought back home.
A Jordan newspaper reports indicate that the woman, whose name was not given but aged 22, jumped from the second floor of a building at the University of Jordan Street in Amman.
“Preliminary investigation does not indicate the existence of criminal suspicion,” local newspaper, Al-Ghad, reported last week quoting an anonymous security source in Amman.
A Kenyan working in Jordan Sunday said that the 17 are stuck in Amman because they are unable to get their passports which were confiscated by their employers.
“The seventeen Kenyan workers came to Jordan to be employed as domestic workers but after a few months, they demanded to be taken back.
“The workers union said it was ready to help them but it turned out some of them do not have passports and have been unable to reach to their embassy for help,” the paper reported

Cord leader Raila Odinga features in controversial Hillary Clinton e-mails

Cord leader Raila Odinga features in one of the controversial e-mails released by the US State Department about former US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Raila is named in the correspondence for his utterances in 2009 during his tenure as prime minister in which he is reported to have dismissed Clinton and American ‘interference’ in Kenyan affairs. Kenya Opposition leader Raila Odinga (PHOTO: TITUS OTEBA) In one of the mails sent to Clinton by an influential Democratic Party think tank in 2009, reference is made to ODM leader and how he dismissed the former Secretary of State and American ‘interference’ in Kenyan affairs during her visit to the country. The mail quoted an article in the Associated Press in which Raila reportedly told Clinton that he was not interested in lectures from the West. At the time, Raila served as the country’s Prime Minister under the coalition government headed by then President Mwai Kibaki. Clinton had made a tour of several African counties, including Liberia and Congo
