No matter how good an offer from a man sounds, don’t take it, is the free advise a coast-based woman is giving to Kenyan women.
She argues that men always come back to collect, even though they insisted that they were helping you for free.
She confessed her regret at accepting free rides to her workplace by a ‘kind’ neighbor who later wanted the favor returned. If you know you know.
She told a shocked Maina Kageni that ‘Kenyan men don’t do anything for free’ and that getting the cookie is the end game.
Aisha from Mombasa insisted that even a mere greeting everyday will be repaid.
“nakuambia hapa wanaume wa kenya hata uwape nini, nakuambia kalamu peke yake utalipa, hata kusalimiwa utalipa, nafanya kazi sokoni na naamka saa kumi na kuna jamaa nighbor alikuwa ana otoka na gari akanipea lift, mwezi moja so siku moja akaniitisha namba ya simu, nakwambia kumpee jioni yake naona message ‘njoo nilalle na wewe,’ basi mimi nilikataa, aliniambia nitamplipa juu ya kupewa lift kwa mwezi mmoja, na matatu ni thirty bob, nikajua hata salamu tuu utalipa wacha kupewa hela, utalipa hadi salamu, hata sipendi kuongelesha wanaume, hee”
