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.


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.


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.

“We need a sheng dictionary, Google can’t translate” Kenyans cry out



Are you confused by some of the sheng words young people are using? What’s worse is the songs being released don’t make any sense to us and this is a discussion KOT are curious about.

For instance what does Tuki muok warazi wanabuya mean?


The topic was trending online (actually it is an ongoing debate), with many Kenyans trying to share their interpretations of the words.

Tukimuok = tukikuom = tukikam
Warazi = watiaji
Wanabuya = wanaogopa
Tukumuok warazi wanabuya = tukikam watiaji wanaogopa

Hii sheng ya siku hizi unaweza shikwa na muscle pull ya akili kila time ukifikiria hawa maninja wanasema nini

We also need sheng translators, a whole language in Kenya na hatujui meanings. who makes these new words everyday anyway?

Let me guess:
Tukikuja wanaotudharao wanapenda(au furahi)…
Meaning, we are too good for a haters to go on hating us.

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

CCTV footage of crime in Kilimani elicits craziest theories from Kenyans


If you’re into true crime stories that would be the envy of Hollywood, look no further than posh Kilimani according to KOT after the name of the residential estate trended for most of the weekend.

Never in the histry of residential areas has a place been more vilified.

One Kenyan on Twitter put it aptly noting that @KinyanBoy..Kilimani is an active crime scene. Either it’s a se3 scandal, business deals gone wrong. It’s like the headquarters of wash wash guys. Fake gold scammers who make it rush to Kilimani like it’s a right of passage. Cursed estate.

This is after a man Kevin Omwenga was killed in his Kilimani bedroom by one Robert Ouko in what seems to be a deal gone bad.

kevin omwenga
Kevin Omwenga

The gun used to kill him belonged to another businessman named Steve Oduk.

The DCI updated about this case saying

#DCI Detectives based at Kilimani have this morning arrested Robert Bodo and recovered a Mini Ceska firearm with 13 rounds of ammunition suspected to have been used in the fatal shooting of a 28-year-old man at Galana Suites in Kilimani.


CCTV footage showing the last minute moves at Businessman Kevin Omwenga’s house before he was shot dead by one his friends!

Here are the reactions KOT couldn’t help dramatizing from this sensational story elicited from the trending topic #Kilimani

Kilimani Apartments are to die for.

We need a crime series called ‘Kilimani’

Right??I swear whole time I watched that CCTV footage I kept telling my cousin This looks like a scene straight from a movie …damnBroken heartBroken heart

Not just police procedural drama
All genres
Love stories

‘Utamu wa mtura ni uchafu’ Kenyans react to disgusting cooking video


Let’s be honest with ourselves for a moment, very few of us eat mutura for a memorable culinary experience, that’s not really the point is it?

So someone has shared a video of how mutura is made and it’s disgusting.

The thing is from the responses to the video, no one is concerned about cleanliness, hygiene and food safety.

Neither am I, LOL. Tutakufa tuu.

The video has been viewed times since being shared by Twitter usrr @ Limorio_ .

Here’s what Kenyans had to say about the clip. Let us know your opinion if you haven’t already shared it.


The comments suggest no one really cares bora ni tamu.

Kenyan impresses KRA after figuring out difficult ‘mazimatics’ log in query


Did you successfully file your 2019 tax returns by the set deadline 30th June?

Many did, except for someone who shares a screenshot of how difficult it was to log in to file returns.

A Kenyan tagged KRA with hours to go to the deadline telling them how ‘they got jokes’.  Why?

Because he had a difficult time filing out log in details onto the itax portal (see picture above)

As the infamous deadline drew closer, the Kenyan shared how his filing experience was on the Itax Portal. One of the steps required filing out a code to access the account.

Stephen Omondi, a fundi along Ngong Road went viral over the weekend for his functional furniture and Machakos Governor Alfred Mutua could be his loyal customer.

The garden seat he made has been shared widely onine. An interview done by Citizen tv says he now has more than 700 orders following the positive coverage online.

He told Citizen that

“Huwa naingia nyumbani six, nakuambia kutoka saa hiyo ilikuwa simu juu ya simu hadi kitu kama saa sita na nusu,” said Odhiambo.

Screenshot from 2020-06-15 11_47_44


Even Machakos Governor Alfred Mutua is impressed and revealed that he buys his furniture along Ngong road.

This looks like Dagoretti corner – Ngong road furniture place. That is where I like getting furniture made so that money circulates among my people. If you insist on quality & diligence, they give you what you can buy in imported furniture shops. I grew up nearby at Riruta.

The mans invention will surely see him rake in millions if the orders keep increasing. We salute hard work.

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.

‘He was a thief. I cannot defend him’ Mother says of son killed in Komarock


Susan Wangui, the mother of a teenager lynched in Komarock on Tuesday, denounced the boy as a thief who specialised in snatching mobile phones.

Derrick Ndung’u, 19, was cornered by a mob soon after robbing a woman of her phone. His accomplices escaped on a motorbike.

“His work was stealing…he was a thief. I cannot defend him. He was snatching mobile phones…I once warned him he would die if he did not stop. I had tried my best to talk to him,” Wangui said.

She said Ndung’u’s crime base was Maili Saba in neighbouring Kayole.

She recalled posting a Sh500,000 bond for him three months after he was arrested after committing a crime.

“His uncle, aunts and grandmother pleaded with me to intervene and have him released. I paid the half a million bond for his release,” Wangui said.

She thereafter got him job offers but he ignored her and resumed his life in crime.

Before he was killed, Ndung’u had told his mother that he was going to see a girlfriend who had just called him.

The mother pleaded with his friends to reform or else they are killed like him.  “I’m telling his friends to change or suffer the same fate.”

Wangui was lauded on social media for her confession.

“This is the most sincere message I have heard all my life. Let them (criminals) say they didn’t hear. It’s so so clear.  The grave awaits you if you don’t want to work and sweat. Thanks to this brave woman. My condolences fellow mother,”  Rose Juma posted on Facebook.

Barely a day after Ndung’u was lynched, human rights groups were up in arms, accusing the police of extrajudicial killings.

Police officers had on Wednesday gunned down four suspects along Kangundo Road after a botched robbery.

Two pistols and 14 bullets were recovered where the four – aged between 21 and 26 – were felled.

“Of late we have had a surge of cases involving young violent robbers, snatching items and vandalising vehicles in Umoja, Dandora, Kayole, Komarock and other areas…one of those killed had been on our radar,” Buruburu police commander Adamson Bungei said.

He said the gangsters escape on motorbikes after robbing pedestrians on their way home from the city centre and other places of work.

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.

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.

Mama Fua: Lucy Gatimu has a perfect response to being job shamed


Her response to job shaming contains a lesson for all Kenyans.

An unexpected story about a Kenyan woman, her job and the value of work took hold of the public conversation this week. Lucy Gatimu has been sharing pictures and videos of her washing clothes and urging people to share widely on their timeline.

She has thanked supporters after photos/videos of her washing were mocked online.

A terrible comment job shaming her caught the attention of KOT, who shut down the source of the shame.

It also resulted in a flood of messages of support for Lucy.

Lucy on her Twitter told Kenyans that the messages and Mpesa she received from around the country quickly ended any sense of shame or humiliation she experienced.

Am not ashamed of my hustle so pliz stop making me feel bad about it with your negative words..am so blessed to have the best clients from here…thankyou guys for the support

A job offer was tweeted to her after the story went viral.

She added

Untill you wear my shoe and listen my story of what I have gone through with my kids to be where we are now and doing this job then you will stop judging me BT for now I will do what i do best to my clients home with my ears closed

Here’s how you can reach Lucy below:
