- When you leave the country, you don’t identify with your tribe. Tribalism dies off. Nobody goes to America and tells them “Mimi ni Giriama”
- It doesn’t make sense for parents to judge you when marrying from another tribe… but when you bring a foreigner home….. “We are conquering other countries”. Kweli hatujipendi.
- When it comes to athletics, we all become Kenyans…. When it comes to domestic affairs…… “Our people are being targeted”
- When you judge someones character based on historical political events to justify your stereotypes. “Alimaliza ugali yote kwa buffet? Ni mluhya?”
- When you talk ill of your colleague in mother-tongue because they can’t understand it, yet you are a team that needs to get work done.
- When you pledge allegiance to a politician who subtly promotes hate against another ethnic group, but behind closed doors he/she is making business deals with the leaders from other ethnic groups.
- When you offer water to your Kamba friend, when you buy your Luo friend an English dictionary, when you buy your Kikuyu friend a wallet, when you buy for a Kalenjin rubber shoes, when you send banana cake to your Kisii friend on his birthday, when you gift your Luhya friend with a thermos… get the drift? Be considerate in your gifting.
Okay, I joke
- When you treat Indians differently, yet they were instrumental in building our nation. (Who helped in the railway construction again?)
