The search for greener pastures has seen many Kenyans relocate to Nairobi and its surroundings, creating more neighborhoods.
The government even introduced the ‘Nyumba Kumi’ initiative to be able to handle the rise of insecurity due to increase in ‘majirani’.
With the increase in population emerges a rare breed of neighbors who are not only annoying and petty but a pain as well for their uncouth behavior.
Here are the types of neighbors you are likely to find.
We all have seen that one neighbor who wants to know anything and everything that happens in your house. From who you are dating to what you ate last night. They will always seek to find out where do you buy your clothes, who is that booty call who checks into your house at midnight on those lazy Saturday nights etc.
One would be mistaken to think they are compiling a top secret, classified report to give it to the police.
They are the kind of neighbors that stalk you wherever you go just to have some juicy information to share with other idle people who might be willing to listen to her. If they don’t do it physically, they create pseudo accounts to cyber stalk you.
She will befriend you on all social media platforms, come to your house uninvited and even try talking to you whether you want to or not.
These are the kind of neighbors who have ‘mkono mrefu’ they never miss to see your new lingerie on the clothes line or a new pair of shoes and not grab them.
Problem comes in when you go and claim it as yours, they deny it so much even swearing with the names of their long dead ancestors.
Such neighbors are termed ‘BBC’ for their know it all attitude. They are better than CSI when it comes to investigating their neigbours. They have a PHD in not minding their business. Nothing seems to pass their ears.
They know who fathered who, who is dying, who killed who, where and when…It is lke they are always there when anything happens.

5. Drama Queens
This are the worst type of neighbors one could ever come across always causing drama at the slightest provocation. Always arguing over who fetches water first, whose clothes line they will hoard, why were you staring at their husband and many other petty issues.
Such neighbors also love attention and will do anything including shouting and name calling just to look like the ‘boss’.
6. Dirty and Unkempt
NEMA should arrest such neighbors for their unhealthy behavior which puts everyone at risk of getting communicable diseases such a cholera.
So annoying are these neighbors that it requires some self control not to get into a confrontation with them, they throw waste anywhere, leave uncovered diapers all over, leave the communal sink littered with food leftovers thus blocking it in the process.
7. Slay Queens
This neighbors are always idle, strutting along the corridors showcasing any thing new they might have bought including some cheap second hand dresses which leaves nothing to imagination.
They always have a mirror trying to re-pimp their make just in case the guy next door fails to notice them. Such neighbors pretend to be well versed when it comes to fashion when they actually know nothing at all.
