Maina Kageni was at pains to understand how a man in his 30’s or 40’s would still be living at his mothers house, despite the fact that he is working.
Mwalimu King’ang’i on the other hand argues that some of these men have generational debts. This is where since your parents educated you, the older children now have to do the same for the younger siblings as pay back.
Here is what the listeners had to say on the sensitive topic of whether there is a justification as to why a man should be living with his mother at age 40.
“For me these men are very irresponsible na kama hajiezi hata wewe hakuwezi, mwanaume ni effort.”
Another male fan adds
” Maina today I agree with you if you are still living with your mother in your 30’s or 40’s you should not even wear trousers, even if I was a woman I would never such a man.”
Just when you think you have heard all there is to hear
“I concur with you there is no justification but there are some circumstances that push a man to live with their parents.
In some instances a man had his life planned out met a woman and got married but the woman milked him dry.
The mum tells him to come back home to start life afresh after all what are mother’s for?
Others are bread winners as Mwalimu Kingangi says. Some are just lazy, they just want to live off their parents money.
What about ladies who go get babies with different baby daddies? It’s not always about men.”
“Mine is different I am 35. My siblings, sisters, nieces and my own family so that I can take care of them. I can’t live in a good place and my mother is struggling.
To me my mum is everything. She comes first if my wife does not want to see my mum in our house she can as well hit the frame.”
