On the Monday morning conversation on September 20, there was a guy who was all over the internet and we wonder if he has a point ama anatuchomea.
The man in question is talking about Kenyans and our employment attitude.
He says there are no Kenyans who work honestly. He described how unemployable we are in a long video clip below
“nunua lorry utangaze untafuta watu wale watakuja ni walevi wa kupindukia, waizi kabisa, gari ununue na loan, spare parts zinaibiwa, unachukuwa msichana mzuri kutoka kijiji atiumwahjiri kwa mpesa aanpotea na flot. Ni wakora hatuna professionals hapa, mtu unamwandika anaingia kazi saa tatu mlevi kabisa, we must change our character. Mbona watu wa Rwanda ndio wanajiriwa kwa kinyozi hapa? tuwache ku8sema hakuna kazi, tuwe na skill mzuri”
“Wale wanasema Kenya hakuna kazi, kazi iko ile kitu hakuna ni watu wakufanya kazi. Unanunua gari unaajiri mtu anaiba spare parts anauza.”

Is that the truth? Mwalimu said ‘ako na ukweli mingi hapo”
Are we so corrupt in our DNA that we cant be trusted to do anything Maina asked?
Mwalimu gave an example of his failed butchery business that flopped because of a greedy relative hired to run it.
“Tunaharaka ya kuwa tajiri kama boss wako, mimi nilikuwa na butchery Siloham, nilikuwa na fjamaa hapo mbipo ananipelleka na nilimtoa mashambani nikambania nataka tucompete na mighty Mike, ah kumbe yeye anauza huku hauzi yangu aie hata hakai kwa dfuyka and I don’t know why Maina you need ot address this whern you employ your relatives!”
Here are responses to the mans comments:
Hii ni uongo. Huyu mtu anataka kuandika watu awalipe kidogo alafu bado wachunge biashara yake. If you pay well, you will attract good labor. Watu wataogopa kufutwa kazi. Ukilipa vibaya, watu watatafuta njia ya kujilipa. People hire Rwandese because Rwandese accept the worst terms
Problem is not Kenyans, problem is unfair payments, cheap labor and poor working conditions,.
Unataka uajiri dereva umlipe 15k per month… Uko na kichwa mzuri? “.
Very true. Currently, I have a matatu lying somewhere because I can’t find a reliable driver. I once couldn’t open a shop for close to two months (while paying rent) because I couldn’t find a competent and trustworthy salesgirl.
It’s somehow true but employers should also check on the welfare of their employees
The pay compared to the working hours, the environs and living standards.
Imagine an employee who works for you from 7.40Am to 8.00pm in Nairobi
you paying her 6,500 monthly and no overtime
