Kenyans open up about how corona is putting a strain on friendships and finances

Alot has changed Mwalimu said during the Wednesday morning conversation about covid.

“Ssasa inabidi ukae nyumbani ukiangalia bibi yako kama maziwa inamwagika, there is pressure, tulifuliza mpaka imeishiwa. kila kitu ilisimama ata ruracio’.

Where is the most pressure coming from in your life? Maina asked.

“Let me tell you about myself, me I adapt, What can be done to ease your pressure because there is alot of frustration going around. Is it from the home, the kids, the workplace? Coz you know we’ve got to live, we’ve got to find a way around it. Do you feel better after venting, coz we need to talk about it and give each other solutions or there will be a problem.

@purity_ng..#MainaAndKingangi There is nothing that can be done at the moment…no job opportunities at the moment campanies have shut down…so we will have to live with bitter people around us..Hapa ni kila mtu na Mungu wake sasa

Joblessness! It means, we’ll need to change our direction, path & route then follow the entrepreneur way. Chasing from our professions isn’t paying now. Currently, academics aren’t paying bills but our technical skills & abilities which I believe are God given.

@eddie_owino..
Pressure ya ndoa mzae… I have since acknowledged that my life is still societal and each clan member has a say over it. I wish they would reduce the pressure, just a little bit as I look for my hidden treasure (wife)
@INgarachu..Maina my biggest pressure ni price of food is high and the price of fuel is so high.
@AmozKipchirchir..
Good morning Maina, we’ve a number teachers who were employed in BOM terms & in PRIVATE schools who haven’t been paid since much. I can’t imagine the level of depression they’re going through. Help me address this to relevant authorities Maina.
@walterodhis1..
Maina I thank God everyday that at least I have a number of clients who still come to my place for my services. Wengine wanaumia sana. Imagine what school bus drivers are going through. #maths

@ChemieEssie..
Struggling to make a daily living, and which at times, despite trying,ends up with nothing. But somebody somewhere,whom we have entrusted to manage and utilize the country’s resources,ie using them as if he/she knows the pain of a one day hustle.
@MShariff1..
Morning. First, the isolation and loneliness. Not allowed to meet ppl. Second, no jobs, everything is closed apart from supermarkets. Third, afraid to go out anywhere regardless of even wearing a mask in this cant keep chonjo. Fourth, difficulty in doing online shopping.
