Kenyan woman in Diaspora told to shut up over her “life abroad is hell” comments

Published

on

BY BMJ MURIITHI

A Kenyan woman has met the wrath of her compatriots in the Diaspora for claiming that many of them live like paupers. In a video posted online, the woman whose name and country of residence we are yet to establish says “maisha ulaya ni magumu” and goes on to paint a very grim  picture of live abroad.

However, most Kenyans who have responded to her comments are not amused. Writing on various social media platforms, most of the Kenyans in the Diaspora seem to be delivering one clear message: “speak for yourself!”

After the video went viral Monday, the hashtag #speakforyourself trended all day Tuesday.

Sample these comments and watch the video below them:

John Ateka says on Twitter: Whereas it is no secret that some Kenyans in the Diaspora struggle to make ends meet, it is also true that there are others who are doing quite well. That is a fact. #speakforyourself.

Wairiimujk writes on Instagram: “It is quite ok to to say all that but for goodness sake, don’t generalize.

MarionOsosi says: Who makes you the representative of all Kenyans abroad. Please speak for youreself.

Irene Macknon says on Facebook: I do struggle to make ends meet but I don’t appreciate your general characterization of life in the Diaspora. #seeyourlife.

Annmwaniki writes on Twitter: This is defamation. serikali saidia. She should be charged under the new cybercrime and computer misuse law law for slander.

AnitaJ says: I am embarrased. Just shut up!

VIDEO: 10 most irritating things about Kenyans from Diaspora

Published

on

One time, a friend of mine went on a two-week tour of the USA and when she came back to Kenya, he couldn’t stop saying, “You know worr I am sayin?”

After visiting a foreign country, it’s normal to find locals adopting a tweng. Never mind, Kenyans who studied in India, Italy, Russia, Ukraine and Greece rarely return with accents that would make you mistake them for a Patel, Marco, Ivanov, Alexei or Costopoulos.

Here are 10 irritating things when Diaspora Kenyans jet home:

1. Ngai!..Am I safe?
This mohine who has lived in Dandora all his life, before getting a scholarship to study in some community church run college in Wyoming, will ask his childhood friends: “Is Buruburu safe after six?” when they ask him to join them for drinks.

2. Do you take cards?
Otieno, who grew up in Kasipul-Kabondo before he was saved by some missionaries who took him to Canada for college studies, will ask if he can swipe his Visa card at the local butchery.

3. Is that sparkling or orange water?
Seriously? How do you expect a shopkeeper in a sleepy village in Murang’a to stock sparkling water? People there drink water straight from Mathioya River and have never died of bilharzia…

4. Like back in the US… my foot
Every sentence has to have a comparison of how different things are like back ‘home’ in the US of A… “This traffic… my God!… like back in the US there is nothing like this!” …”Like back in the US…things are efficient, there is service delivery… “

5. Gas is petrol, right?
These Diaspora guys come and shortly forgot they called ‘ngata’ petrol. They call it gas and thus have to go to a gas station…  supermarkets are convenience stores. And they will ask whether you moved houses to a ‘Condo’… and when you zubaa whether they meant ‘kondoo’ they correct  that it’s ‘condominium’ back in Delaware…which is a Shagz like mid Atlantic State equivalent to Ruiru in Kenya. And by the way, nobody gives a rat’s butt what you call things in the US!

6. I can’t speak Luhya fluently
These are nincompoops who used to get the ‘disk’ for not speaking proper English or Swahili and always translated English from vernacular when talking during the Kibaki presidency. But now they proudly brag through their noses that “I only speak Luhya and Swa kidogo!”

7. Is mutura inspected?
Yes, we know Kamande the butcher handles money, and still uses the same hands to roast mutura. But we have been eating his food since we got our first jobs and nothing has ever happened…apart from an occasional stomach ache that Vodka quickly cured. But when these Diaspora charlatans come everything has cholera!

8. Don’t you guys tip…
Tipping waitresses and bar maids is good. But many Kenyans who just landed from London take it a step too far. Hey will tip a waitress Sh1000 after paying a Sh1, 500 bill. They even tip gas station attendants!

9. Overnight patriots
They look for Maasai market where they buy and wear Masaai shukas and sandals everywhere. They want African things. They want to tour the Maasai Mara, yet when they lived in Pangani estate they furthest they ever went was for a “loose mbuzi thing” (read goat eating) at Ole Polos in Kajiado.

10. Polite dictators
If they have been given stuff to deliver to you, they will make sure you pick them from where they are… like when they jet at midnight, you should be there because “I don’t want luggage!” and when they go to Mombasa, they carry your stuff and you have to wait for them.

The day and time are finally here. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle tying  the knot and we are live from St George’s Chapel courtesy of our affiliate stations in UK. And oh yes, we now know how it’s all going to go down after the palace released the Order of Service Friday evening.

“Like any couple getting married, Prince Harry and Ms. Markle have taken a great deal of care in selecting all elements for their service,” Kensington Palace said in a statement released with the Order of Service. “This has been a collaborative effort led by Prince Harry and Ms. Markle.”

“The Order of Service was produced before it became clear that Mr. Thomas Markle would be unable to attend the wedding on medical advice,” the palace said in a statement. “As a result, some aspects will be different to what has been printed. As previously announced, Ms. Markle has asked The Prince of Wales to accompany her down the aisle of The Quire.

The palace confirmed on Friday that Prince Charles will be walking Meghan down the second portion of the aisle of St. George’s Chapel. Watch live:
