When is the last time you went shags?
Be honest, probably several years.
This is something many of us are guilty of and it’s not because of distance.
Classic 105’s Mike Mondo opened up debate about this to listeners to tell the real reason why Kenyans no longer visit their ushago.
If you are an 80’s baby, you will get this.
We lived for the moment of visiting shags.
But nowadays there is a trend among young people not being interested in visiting the village. If you ask them where they are going it’s Dubai or Mombasa. Infact if you see them in shags it’s for a ruracio.
It’s sad it’s your grandmother who gets into a bus to come to Nairobi to see you. It even used to be a big deal to take your babe to shags for Christmas. And I’m wondering :what’s happening. Why don’t young people visit the village anymore?
Why is it that as a young person going to shags on vacation is a no.. no?
A caller said
nowadays it’s not easy kwasababu kazi Nairobi ni ngumu sana afadhali utume pesa kwa mpesa. Kuwenda ushago saa hii the ladies we are marrying nowadays they don’t want to go shags.
I go shags every December and it’s a rule. Where I got married they have a rule every December you take your wife to shags.
I last went 20 years when my dad died in 99. This was the last time we went there.Before that we went every December but the reason why I stop going ni my relatives walinikosea. When my dad died there was family conflict. I hated my grandmother and my grandfather. I hated everyone on my dads side I swore never to go back there, so I have to get someone to show me direction there. The last time I was there I don’t remember anything.

Mike it depends with people who are there. Mike at our home area ppl are very demanding
The fact that I hate my grandmother so much makes me not go to that home it is so painful thaty our grandmother hates your kids so what is the reason to go shags, in kukuyu she calls her own children dogs it is that bad.
It’s a classic example of people not appreciating where they come from, people are hiding in towns. It’s because they are not investing in their kishagi and they wouldn’t find it dirty if they did. So let people go back to kishagi first.
