Why do we take it personally? Maina Kageni asks about bad Kikuyu women jokes

Kikuyu women are currently bearing the brunt of nasty jokes online, more so after Billionaire Tob Cohens body was discovered in a septic tank, 50 days after a search for his body was launched.

Cohens 52-year-old wife Sarah Wairimu is detained at Langata Prison awaiting trial over the murder.

At the centre of this case is a Sh400million villa in Kitisuru and inheritance.

Kenyans on Twitter have taken note of what they say is a pattern in deaths involving billionaires. That these men are married to Kikuyu women, who always face accusations of having murdered their men over inheritance disputes. Their words not mine.

This formed the topic of discussion on Classic 105 with Maina Kageni giving his opinion about the terrible jokes.

I laughed this weekend it was real entertainment for me

I have always taken it with a pinch of salt

Why aren’t we laughing at ourselves? Why did you take it so seriously to be honest? It started with Bob Collymore and it has been there since time immemorial, why didn’t we see the funny side?

Me I believe in laughing at ourselves there is a difference between being able to laugh at yourself and negative stereotyping, and this weekend we saw a lot of that seriously why? It’s social media, the day you believe what goes on in social media, you will die, ask Peter Kenneth, he had millions of followers wacha elections came

It’s social media, the boldness in people comes out while others are there to chocha, why don’t you take a chill pill?

Stereotyping is something we will all have to live with, and especially with the age of social media. There is nothing you can do about that
