Niaje Kiongos: Clever BUT Annoying ways Kenyans ask for money

We are telling you this ndio usigongwe.

They say in Kenya if you want to know what a person will say next, pay attention to how they greet you or initiate conversation.

Most recently Kenyans found ways to charm President Uhuru in a bid to get him to relax lockdown and curfew rules.

They called him mkubwa, kiongos, baba lao among other names to get him to soften prior to announcing his next move. Sadly it failed.

A twitter user asked Kenyans to say their encounters with Kenyans who want to beg for cash.

Did she secretly speak to Mama Diamond? Zari comes clean

Kachai to showing up late: Here are typical Kenyan traits

I’m a proud Kenyan, not for the good things the country has to offer but I’m part of the larger mass that are defined by their peculiar habits. As a patriotic Kenyan, you must possess the following traits:

Fascinating reasons why Kenyans don’t read widely

1. Kachai

Leave alone the kachai we give the cops. This one is different. We have a culture of dishing out “kitu kidogo when someone does us a favor regardless on how small it is. Money is a way of saying thank you.

kakitu

The problem is giving a satisfactory amount to the recipient. How many times have you asked someone, “sasa unataka ngapi aki?” and they shyly said “niko tu sawa” but in their eyes you read otherwise.

2. Lateness

Most of us are guilty as charged. Kenyans have a difficult time observing time. We are busy doing nothing only to realize time is not on our side and rush to our planned destination.

saa

Not once nor twice have I seen someone show up late with an unapologetic face. We are not bothered with this as it’s basically an African issue and aren’t we part of Africa?

3. Deadline rush

From filling taxes to attending to assignment at the 11th hour, this is another vice we are struggling with as a nation. Remember Huduma number? Matiangi had to add an extra week after cries from the public who had not yet registered. During voter registration exercise, the government is always forced to add extra days as Kenyans rush to beat the deadline. Are we too busy or are we just a reluctant lot?

Here are reasons why Kenyans still find it hard to hit the gym

4. Bargaining excessively

Wakenya na kubargain, Yawa! We bargain on everything. The rule of the game has it that when a Kenyan hears the price of a product, they divide it by two and start bargaining from there. This is one of the traits traders have to deal with. We are also known for trashing a product we have eyes on to avoid the seller from hiking its price once they know we have deep interest.

MehMeh! President Uhuru tells Kenyans he has seen all your silly jokes about him

 

Saturday June 6th was a tense day for Kenyans as they awaited President Uhuru to announce he was lifting the lockdown and curfew.

KOT shared praise messages to the President in a bid to soften his heart, but sadly it ended in premium tears.

To this end, many memes trended online to express the excitement Kenyans were anticipating with that announcement.

But lo and behold, he disappointed many. He instead extended the lockdown for another 30 days.

In his speech Uhuru said he was aware Kenyans had created memes about him, leading many to speculate if he has a parody account since deleting his official social media handles.

He told Kenyans in a State House Press conference that

nimeona mehmeh mingi ambazo mume tuma huko sijui ati freedom day ati independence day. 

Here are some memes that are taking over the internet.

 

 

 

 

 

Here are more hilarious memes to crack your ribs:

Kenyans mercilessly mock Tanzanians after beef over border shutdown (MEMES)

Hawaelewi kizungu (They can’t construct a simple English sentence) and have tactfully withdrawn from our online beef, are the confident words KOT declared after taking on Tanzanians with hilarious memes making fun of them, following the closure of borders between Kenya and Tanzania.

President Uhuru closed the borders with Somalia and Tanzania on Saturday because of increased cross-border infections, resulting in a sharp reaction from Tanzania.

The cross border conflict spilled to social media, where Kenyans are sharing memes making fun of Tanzanians.

The trending hashtag #KenyaVsTanzania is being used to share memes and other funny thoughts about this beef.

From comparisons of musicians like Khaligraph Jones and Diamond Platnumz, to Nadia Mukani and Nanady, no one has been spared not even socialites Vera Sidika has been voted as better than Hamisa Mobetto.

“You repeat boxers even when I give you clean ones!” Diana Marua shades Bahati

One social media user put it quite simply:
@MuangePJunior….
Tanzanians,don’t dare fight a loosing battle with Kenyans On Twitter. We will give you Stevo Simple Boy to bully you and still you won’t win…#KenyaVsTanzania is a very small match to us…in fact,we already won.

11 of the best ‘In Kenya we say….. And I think it’s beautiful’ tweets

 

Kenyans deserve an Oscar for getting things trending on social media. Whether positive or not, KOT have a way of catching the attention of netizens worldwide.

We also know that Kenyans have their wown jargon, and sometimes it’s hard for older folks to keep up.

There is this millennial trend of adding ‘And I think it’s beautiful’ to the end of anything that signifies our Kenyanness (is that a word?).

Eunice Njeri’s sister who looks like Mercy Masika excites fans

The thought starts by expressing ‘In Kenya we don’t say _, we say ….’ and finishing with ‘And I think it’s beautiful’ to drive the point home.

Here are some of the best examples:

‘My mother would take my life’ Mike Mondo and Kingangi react to drunk youths in ambulance

 

Kenyans are upset over citizens who are breaking curfew and lockdown rules saying it makes it harder for the Government to fight the spread of covid – 19.

Over the weekend, a group of people caused a fracas online when it was revealed that they had defied lockdown orders, and traveled up country with an empty coffin.

The driver used a private vehicle to transport eight people from Nairobi to Homa Bay, pretending the passengers were mourners. The government is yet to respond to allegations that this is a ‘fake’ story.

Diamond’s ex, Wema Sepetu, hosts former mentee and nemesis Harmonize

Others are breaking the dusk to dawn curfew and locking themselves in bars to drink, or attending parties in estates.

The latest is a group of youth who recorded themselves drunk in a an ambulance that was taking them home after they broke the curfew rule.

The youth did not appear to feel remorseful for their action, and KOT condemned them.

The behaviour of the youth and the parent responsible for calling an emergency vehicle were slammed on Classic 105 during the morning conversation with Mike Mondo and Mwalimu Kingangi.

Many are of the opinion that the youth these days are not being disciplined like back in the day, hence their ‘don’t care’ behaviour.

Fake man! Tanasha throws shade at Diamond for supporting Zuchu

Mwalimu recounted how his mother used to discipline him and would not tolerate such behaviour from him.

Mike Mondo also recalled the harsh punishment his mother meted out on him when he was a youth.

He told how his mother would punish him if he called her drunk asking to be rescued for disobeying curfew rules.

‘My mother would take my life and that would be the end of me,’.

People would laugh at my brothers telling them I was funny-looking – Mulamwah narrates

Callers were of the opinion that the behaviour of youth in Kenyan should be blamed on poor parenting. That todays parents are soft on their children, and that spanking needs to be brought back.

Dear Classic 105 fam, do you agree with these views? Let us know int he comments section.

Here are ways Chinese bosses discipline their employees worldwide

 

Violent “discipline” meted out by Chinese supervisors in Kenya formed the basis of the Classic 105 debate on Monday morning February 10.

Cases of Chinese bosses smacking their employees for ‘failing’ is not news, according to the horrifying accounts of many callers.

In Kenya this past weekend, K24 news shared a video of a Chinese restaurant owner giving his Kenyan employee a gruesome beating with a wire, for showing up late to work.

Maina Kageni asked listeners to give their take on what went through their minds, watching the clip.

‘In the video, the Chinese guy is telling the guy to kaa vizuri, and apparently that is normal practice at that restaurant,’ Maina added.

Kenyans were outraged, calling for the arrest and deportation of the man. The Chinese individual it turns out did not have a work permit, and was swiftly carried away with three other Chines men working as chefs, without legal documents.

Four Chinese nationals arrested after viral video of beating of Kenyan man 

Here is a list of terrible and humiliating things Chinese bosses have put workers through:
1. In October 2015, employees were forced to crawl on their hands and knees around a lake after missing their sales targets.

Employees were told to finish a lap around Ruyi Lake, a 23-acre lagoon in the city’s central business district, by crawling.

According to eyewitnesses, nearly everyone’s shirts and trousers were torn during the humiliating punishment.

I am not giving birth again, Kate Actress tells husband

2. A video in 2016, emerged on Chinese social network Weibo of a group of employees from Changzhi Rural Commercial Bank being publicly spanked for poor work performance in Shanxi, China.

According to reports, the video shows the boss of Shanxi Changzhi Zhangze Agricultural and Commercial Bank hitting eight employees – four men and four women – while other colleagues are seated at tables.

Users reacted angrily to the video, expressing their disgust with this action.

Footage showed the boss beating some employees with a stick, and according to reports, the employees had not been ‘working hard enough’.

The man speaks with them on stage before he begins the attack with what appears to be a giant stick.

3. Boss slaps a lineup of ‘bad’ employees in 2016.

In 2016, a video of a chines employer slapping his workers for performing poorly went viral.

4. Chinese bosses beat up employee for refusing to use own phone for work in Zimbabwe

In 2018, a Zimbabwean man sustained a fractured rib when two Chinese national employers punished him after he refused an order to use his personal money in topping up airtime meant for work related calls.

The suspects were said to be the owners of Empress Gold Mine in Mashava. One of the Chinese reportedly ordered the African employee to recharge his mobile phone using his own money to make work-related calls, but the latter refused.

The Chinese bosses punched him several times on the chest using his fists. Another Chinese also joined in the beating, resulting in the African employee fracturing a rib.

Fashion Police: Kenyans speak on strict dress code experiences in Tanzania

Back in 2018, Tanzanian songstress Vanessa Mdee let it be known that she was barred from entering a government office all because of a skimpy skirt.

She wrote of the humiliating experience on Twitter

” Only in Tanzania is my skirt which is at my knees too short to enter a public corporate building. This is incredible”

 Vanessa further revealed she was asked to tie a kanga to access the building to which she added
             “Wameniuliza eti ‘una khanga’ FOH”
Several Kenyans have taken to Twitter to also narrate their most humiliating experience in Tanzania that has left a bitter taste in their mouths.
The discussion was prompted by a confession by the Twitter user below, who warned Kenyans girls to dress accordingly
short clothes tnzania
Many say though it is not all parts of Tanzania where a woman will be ridiculed for her choice of outfit, skimpy outfits are frowned upon.
@writinflo..
Yeah…I mean when we went we were shouted at an some people even refused to sell to us. Just above the knee dresses and skirts 😄@SonnieRox..
Was kicked out of a govt office for a dress that was just above my knees

🤣 This is true, if I wasn’t with my parents I would’ve been jailed hata…

@t_cieloh..
The only bad thing about Tz is this

You can actually be arrested 😭- As a short clothes wearer I felt it 😭

@valswayz..
I was in Dar for a wedding when i was asked to go back change from from my short dress, or either cover myself with a leso before they could let me into the church. I chose to go and change.

@Wa_Mutemi..
Mine wasn’t that short even, And they were like, “tazameni huyu dad’s kavaa nini” so loud, they all turned to stare at me😥

@JanepherGero..
So…men even have the guts to follow and touch you while threatening to strip you naked!!

Women will shout at the back like “motto wa kike jiheshimu”
“Hamna mwanaume atakayekuoa!”
“Unadanga/unajiuza”

It’s so scary being free in Tanzania.

@Karwaay..
Can’t relate. Lol. Seriously though, inategemea na kule uko. Sokoni I cover up. The mall, I don’t. I get stares, but that’s all. Whites get away with anything though.

@flobomett..
The comments my friend and I got in kariokor because of our “short skirts” was irritating damn but in masaki where we were staying no one seemed to mind, also thank you for your inspiration, I did a solo trip to Zanzibar and it was all sorts of amazeballs!

@Kingchrisotieno..
The Brothers in Dar es Salaam also thought my Beach shorts were too short for comfort 😂😂😂.
Someone straight up asked why I was walking around in boxers. 😣😣

@NkathaDee..
Lol. Ikr! Had an experience where a whole street just stood and stared at me in amusement of my short dress.

@Mwotweets..
People were staring at me for wearing a sleeveless top. Do wazungu have the same experience?

@skmathenge..
So that’s why I got weird looks from immigration and traffic cops with my shorts on a road trip to Dar via Namanga & Moshi – I was dressed for comfort & didn’t think much about it. Wife also got a few stares in Dar with her sleevless dress (and it was so hot & humid)!

@JusG_G..
I was there in 2012 and got really rude stares for wearing shorts in the market until one guy suggested I get a Kitenge (zambia/cloth to cover around my waist). I will never forget how angry those men looked

 

18 lies all Kenyans tell on a regular basis

 

 

Let’s get real…all of us have probably, at one time or another, told these very lies to another person or to ourselves.

But us Kenyans are more prone to lying slightly more than what could be deemed ‘occasional.’
1. Ngoja kiasi nakupigia

2. I wonder what this life would have been without you

3. Mum amekusalimia ati urudi home tena

4. You are special

5. I told mum about you

6. simu ilizima jana

7. I will never leave you.

8. From the bottom of my heart

9. Siwezi kuacha,labda uniache wewe

10. Ntakupigia”

11. You are the most beautiful woman I have ever seen…

12. I’ll never leave you

13. Ntakurudishia

14. Babe tuma fare nikam

15. You are my world

16. I was thinking about you

17. If you read hard you’ll be successful

18. Mathe amekusalimia

 Apart From The JKIA Christmas Tree: Here’s a TBT of Waititus tree

 

Kenyans were horrified when a photo of a pathetic looking Christmas tree at the JKIA was shared online. Airport authorities were trolled for hours on end until a new better looking tree was installed. Remember the lion statue put up by Nairobi county? That too was replaced overnight after being mocked.

But too late we got the receipts.

Back in 2018, Kiambu Governor Ferdinand Waititu amused us all when he debited the county Christmas tree.

Waititu posted on his Facebook page about the tree lighting ceremony.

WHY BUY A CHRISTMAS TREE WHEN YOU CAN DECORATE A LIVE ONE?
Rather than spend exorbitant amounts of money to buy a Christmas tree, I channeled my donations and those of corporate and individual well wishers towards buying foodstuffs and blankets to needy children in 12 children’s homes in Kiambu.

He was heavily trolled and since it’s Christmas here is a look back at the tree.

Dear Classic 105 fam, kindly share how your tree looks so we can inspire the Government to give us the contracts to decorate future trees won’t you?

‘Sisi Wote Wajinga’ Maina and Kingangi react to King Kaka song

Kenyan rapper King Kaka has caused a storm with his poetic song ‘Wajinga Nyinyi’ in which accuses politicians of hoodwinking Kenyans and at the same time calls out Kenyans for being gullible.

This discussion trended on social media, and on Monday morning Classic hosts Maina Kageni and Mwalimu weighed in saying ‘sisi wote ni wajinga and we have learnt nothing from it’.

Maina wanted to know what has changed since and what we are going to do going forward about graft and being gullible voters in 2022.

Fine he has done the song, but what are we going to do about it as Kenyans. What are you going to change in terms of your behaviour, we all agree we are sick to the neck as Kenyans, but in 2022 we shall be there queuing with mtu wetu mentality, wajinga sisi,

To which Mwalimu Kingangi shared his simple thoughts

Tumemaliza kuongea

Maina added

It’s dejavu, we’ve been here before someone says something revolutionary and we did nothing, so wajinga nyinyi and then, coz we all need to make that change individually that can snowball into something national.

A woman called in saying

It’s like hell on earth, nothing changes, it’s just gone from worse to worse. For me I don’t vote because of mtu wetu, I try to check your profile and what I have heard about you, but sometimes you find you are on your own. We are not supposed to be tribalists. I don’t know why we recycle these people

Dear Classic 105 fam, what change are you going to make as an individual that will transform how we politik going forward? Drop your comments below.

Kenyans marvel at TBT of food prices at Ebrahims supermarket

 
Feeling the squeeze of the economy yet?

Complaints about the cost of living appear to be growing countrywide with people explaining why they feel so much poorer. Many Kenyans claim they are doing it tougher than ever.

Angry woman yelling at cat turns into hilarious memes 

 

By now you muts have seen Kenyans posting or resharing meme’s of a woman seemingly yelling at a ct.

It’s funny as hell, for those with a sense of humor.

The viral photo is a mashup of a blonde woman yelling at a confused looking white cat sitting in front of a plate of vegetables.

Here is an explanation of the hilarious viral moments that will set the understanding for the meme I will share below.

The human half of the meme finds its origins from a 2011 episode of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, where then-cast member Taylor Armstrong found herself in an emotional confrontation with Camille Grammer, as fellow housewife Kyle Richards attempts to calm her down.

As for the other half of the meme starring the angry white cat, its origins began on Tumblr, when user deadbefordeath posted a photograph of a white cat with a bewildered expression sitting in a chair in front of a plate of vegetables. The caption back then was: “he no like vegetals.”

We share some memes we have found online:

Maina and King’ang’i weigh in on Garissa women rep Subow’s abusive language

 

The obscene and foul language used by female Kenyan politicians has taken centre stage.

This is after Garissa woman rep Anab Subow called Raila Odinga uncircumcised.

In a video that has gone viral on Sunday, Subow is heard referring to Raila as a devil who is not circumcised.

Part of her speech reads

“Rebuke the devil….. this mzee called Baba and I don’t know whose baba he is. He is old but he is not circumcised. He might be baba but let him go to Bondo and be circumcised first. Whom does he think he is, why is he not getting old”.

Classic hosts Maina and Kingangi debated this on Tuesday morning conversation.

Maina was left speechless only managing to say ‘aki mdomo ya wanawake’, while Kingangi insisted that ‘they are showing their true colors’.

Kenyans have labelled the women leaders using verbal abuse as shameless.

The vicious slurs have been roundly condemned when listeners responded to Maina Kageni’s question if it is it the true representation of Kenyan women these days. Here are some views.

An upset man said,’ Can you imagine telling that woman to find your socks? huyo anawezakutafutia? But we are praying to God that all will be well, these career ladies have lost respect for men, they need to change because ile respect that was back in the day that is what we want.

A woman called and said, ‘huyu mwanamke amezaa? because there is no normal woman who can go to in public and talk like that. I think she needs a psyciatrist, coz no normal woman can talk trash like that in public, they are embarrassing women in Kenya,

another said,’ I am saddened by that woman’s comments’.
