Gossips: Six types of annoying Kenyan women that men can’t stand
4 months ago, 15 July 11:06
When you listen to most FM radio call-in sessions, Kenyan men are always on the receiving end, with women accusing them of all manner of ills. They go on and on, whining about local men, with their pet topic being how Kenyan men are stingy and not romantic.
Fair enough. There many proven cases of how bad and annoying Kenyan men are. But the million-dollar question is, are our women any better? Keen observations reveal that there is so much stuff that Kenyan women do, which annoy men as well.
Queen of borrowing
First comes women with a poor borrowing culture. When they visit, they want to leave your house with an item. “Wow, I like this book, can I borrow it and return next week?”, “Let me go watch this movie/series, I will return it,” or “can I borrow your extra phone? I will return in two days once I buy mine,” they will beg.
But when you lend them an item, it takes the combined intervention of Recce Squad, Interpol and a global positioning satellite (GPS) device to track it down. Excuses galore. It takes a shouting match or a court order for such types to pay a debt. When you insist, they label you stingy and ungentlemanly. They lose your autographed, souvenir book or music CD and hide behind “haki woiye!”.
Drunk like a fish madam
Then they’re those whom you take out, get drunk and forget themselves. They engage in indecent exposure, dancing with every Tom, Dick and Harry. If you are not keen, they kiss strangers and have no qualms being touched inappropriately in their men’s presence. They are in the habit of turning boyfriends into guard or attack dogs, who have to look after them, warding off mannerless strangers who try to dirty dance with them.
Some get high and start causing trouble and getting their men into unnecessary fights with strangers at night clubs. “Nipige kama wewe ni mwanaume,” they will dare a 200kg heavy bouncer then expect their men to intervene. They start wailing the moment the offended man frowns and cocks a slap, threatening to smack them.
It’s this shameless drunk types whom you take to a live concert, get carried away and, without an ounce of shame, start shouting the name of the celeb on stage, expressing undying love for him.
“I looove you WizKid (Davido, Diamond or whatever ariste is performing), please marry me,” they scream while, get this, firmly perched atop your shoulders. The cheek of it!
Alternatively, you pay her entry fee to an overpriced extravaganza, only for her to vanish and keep making technical appearances, demanding a drink.
Team whiners and gossips
They are always complaining about this or that and backbiting, not just anybody but their so-called ‘best friends for life’. When you see three of them giggling, you would think they’re best of buddies. But wait until one is away.
This group has a variation. It includes the sneering types. Woman, your mother never taught you that sneering is a catalyst for wrinkling? A hot lady catwalks ...
