INTERESTING....10 TYPES OF PEOPLE YOU FIND IN NAIROBI’S EASTLANDS NEIGHBOURHOODS!!! NUMBER 5 AND 7 ARE THE MOST COMMON AND MOST ANNOYING



There is no better part of the city to experience the ‘real’ Nairobi life than Eastlands. It’s only in ‘Eastlando’ where you’ll go to a shop and find a guy buying the weirdest combination of things: “Nipatie condom moja, maziwa ndogo na wembe.” The interesting part is that the guy is buying all those things on credit.

It’s amazing, the kind of characters you’ll come across, especially in residential ‘plots’. Here are the most common:

1. Mama ‘Moshene’
She’s the ‘mama yao’ aka gossip queen. This lady knows everything that happens in the plot, real or imagined. She’s always talking about other people and what they do. She loves criticizing yet she’s far from perfect herself. She’s always keeping secrets of her own but meddling in other people’s affairs. When you get fat, she’ll say you are on ARVs and when you get thin she’ll say you might be infected with HIV. The sorry part is she’s shapeless herself, looking like a sack of viazi from Molo

2. Broke guy/jobless guy/idler
This is the kind of guy you’ll always find present in your hood. Most of the times, he likes hanging out ‘kwa base’ with the boys and chewing ‘mogoka’ or ‘miraa’. This is the guy that always has problems paying the rent and his house gets locked up by the landlord from time to time. The idler also prefers asking for assistance and small loans from friends instead of looking for money.
