I am in this restaurant in town. Enjoying a not so fresh mango juice. Costs Sh 250.
Across the corner, four men men sit idly. Two are young, mostly in their early 20s. And two are in their 40s. One of the men, the 40-something old, is short, with a disgusting potbelly and a more disgusting and very stupid personality.
He has been on a phone for more than 20 minutes and he is using the most vulgar Kisii I have never used even with my peers.
From the conversation, he says, he sleeps with women without protection.
“At my age, you don’t use protection. I am not like you(the person on the receiving end) who uses protection.”
He goes on saying very disgusting and demeaning things about women. Something totally out of character for a man his age. Very Stupid. Even the younger men in the table I can see are stupefied. Benumbed even. Man, nevet seen someone his age so crass.
I am hoping there are no Kisii women in the restaurant to hear what he is saying.
He looks the type with two matatus, an apartment in Utawala and he is being cheated to run for a political seat. And his small wealth( could be loans) have given him this illusion of invincibility.
Man, how did we get here as a society?
