I see more and more Kenyans adopting the woiye rhetoric. Especially online.
Me I was taught maisha ni kung'ang'ana. It's not a place for pity parties. If you have a problem, you deal with it somehow because complaining doesn't actually change anything. Kina Kimathi waliingia msitu. Koitalel, Mekatilili etc. Ni upambane na hali yako.
Ama I'm over thinking and it's just a plot to get some quick money? Everything has become about money anyway
Why would you migrate? What do you think you stand to gain from leaving Kenya for good?
For those of you who were lucky enough to migrate, what has the experience been like so far? Why would or wouldn't you come back?
Itching to go on as many interesting experiences as possible this year. It's been a tough couple of months, feel like I need to take a few trips to reboot. Any ideas about interesting hidden gems to visit in Kenya?
I am admittedly not a fan of Kenya and think very lowly of her. However, it doesn’t stop me from feeling empathetic towards her situation. I can’t imagine being with a partner who literally despised me, didn’t appreciate me, and publicly put me down.
I do wonder, though, if Marc’s behavior is a symptom of seeing through Kenya and all of her horrendous behavior. Perhaps he is just at his wits end dealing with her shadiness and questionable character. Either way, that does not excuse his treatment of her. You don’t like her and hate being married to her? Cool, leave. Don’t drag her and break her even more than she already clearly is.
As much as I dislike Kenya, it’s uncomfortable and very sad for me to watch her get berated week after week. You can literally see him breaking her down further and further each episode, and it almost makes me think he’s worse than her.

I'm going to spend a month with my aunt that lives in Nairobi. It's my first time ever traveling outside the USA, so I'm super excited but also nervous. I know homosexual acts are criminalized in Kenya, and am lead to believe that the majority of Kenyans are conservative and hold negative views of the LGBT community. I certainly won't advertise it, but I also worry people can tell I'm gay just by looking at me. Will I be fine as long as I keep it to myself?
According to this, Kenya has the highest internet penetration rate in Africa - at ~90% (about 46.87 million connected users)
i was skeptical at first, but also came across this link by Statista which features similar numbers, and maybe most interestingly, this link from GSMA that are a big-shot company so I'd assume their data is pretty good.
Thoughts? Looks like the government hasn't been messing around with getting people online.
But I wonder why that doesn't correlate with the number of businesses that actually feature an online presence. Aside from Jumia (which isn't even African in truth), not many other businesses command such a large presence that you have to take notice. Or am I missing something?
I have been looking for a great shipping company but most of them do only US to KE.
Does anyone know of a good shipping company that can allow me to ship stuff from Kenya to USA?
I’ve been in Kenya for 4 months, so I’ve got quite a good climpse of what’s going on in here, but has anyone here travelled to neighbour countries before? How was it with visas? Does Kenya go under east-african visa aswell? Must see places/cities/nature? Anything else I should be aware of?
Thanks in advance!
Cynthia and Mike‘s relationship is tested when his past becomes too much for Cynthia to handle. The girls kick out their frustrations during a game of kickball. Marc is back in town and invites Kenya’s nemesis to group “couples bowling” in preparation for his upcoming charity event.
There will be no travel to international events for the next month for Kenyan sportsmen and sportswomen over concerns about the global coronavirus outbreak, the country's sports ministry has said.
This is the dead body of my close neighbour’s son (I’ve withheld the photo because it’s gruesome) in Manyatta Estate, Kisumu. He was shot in the neck by an anti-riot police officer during the post-poll protest of 2017. He was to sit for KCSE exams later that year. Being half orphan, he had a school fees problem and was sent home because of arrears. His mother had however secured some money from a 'chama' and he was due to get back to school three days from the day he died. His life and dream cut short by a trigger-happy police officer. The gunning down of a teenager three days ago in Kasarani is the reason I've reference the story. For the last three years alone, many teenagers and students have died in the hands of the police. So parents, caution your children not to get near places where public protests are. Our police service is rogue and has no respect for human life. Your child of secondary school and college-going age has a high adrenaline rush potential; joining in a protest th... keep reading on reddit ➡
I'm considering moving to Kenya to teach at the Braeburn school - I'm wondering if anyone here has experience of the school and what they consider it to be like.
Furthermore, any advice for things to be aware of for a westerner moving to Kenya before actually coming and things he should know about. Thanks.
The Kenyan government has opened a quarantine centre in the capital, Nairobi, for suspected coronavirus cases.
The facility at Mbagathi District Hospital has been opened in the wake of public concern about the country’s preparedness to deal with a possible outbreak of the new strain of the virus, which causes the respiratory disease Covid-19.
Basically as the title reads. I’m a student at an exclusive Kenyan private school, I can provide proof to the mods for this but I won’t name the school here for anonymity’s sake and my parents are part of Kenya’s so-called top 1%. As long as it’s not going to lead to any identifiable information coming out, please Ask Me Anything.
In advance, my intentions of doing this were not to brag or boast about anything, as a long time lurker on this sub on my alt account I thought I could provide an insight into the relatively privileged life that I live and compare and contrast it with other users on the sub. Again, apologies if this comes off as pretentious and if this is against the rules I will happily delete it. Will provide proof to the mods if needed. So r/kenya ask me absolutely anything.
Edit: 14:25. I’m taking a quick break from answering questions and will likely be back later in the afternoon. Appreciate the criticisms, question and everything in between.
Edit: 15:06. I’m bac... keep reading on reddit ➡
I once considered making an animation involving the doomer character. Doomer is a youth who is unemployed/ underemployed and is in a hopeless situation with corporations and politicians taking advantage of him. I kinda forgot about it till i recently found it among my emails.
I’ve been a viewer since season 1. Watched Kenya come and go, become villain then victim, with the cycle revolving.
After this last episode, inviting “Cookie Lady”, I’m just done. When Tanya, rightfully so, brought up how Kenya crashed Marlo’s event to parade her own products around, Kenya couldn’t handle her hypocrisy on full display. She deflected, as is true Kenya style. But the worst, is when she kept egging on Cookie Lady to keep giving details that “implicate” Tanya’s fiancé as a cheater.
Now, this single event isn’t what did it. This was just the straw that broke this camels back.
Her almost ruining Cynthia’s engagement was another super Shady Boots move.
Most, if not all, of the housewives have said or did something shady. For me, it’s looking at the intention. Tanya using the wig to poke at Kenya wasn’t malicious or trying to tear her down. On the other hand, when you look at the bulk of Kenya’s shadiness, it comes from such a hateful place. I just can’t look past it an... keep reading on reddit ➡
Food prices are rising and starting to cut into my budget. Personally, i'm trying new low cost recipes, carrying food to work and trying to preserve/ bulk buy food that is in season.
What other ideas do you guys have.
I'm aware that electricity costs in Kenya are disproportionately high compared to the rest of the world. Will we ever get to the point where it's more cost effective to charge an electric car in our homes than it is to fuel an internal combustion vehicle?
I'd really like to get on this Tesla bandwagon.
Hi, last year has seen a rapid growth in Kenyan music and specifically gengetone. It’s being played in more and more households. Now we all know the explicit content that comes with this genre but do you think it’s going to be sharpened and exported as quality music or its reached the end of the rope and Kenyans are slowly going to revert back to west African music? I’m asking both as an investor and consumer so positive criticism would help.
Does anyone have any insights on this topic ???

Hello everyone, I am from Australia and am collecting postcards from the world. I don't have one from Kenya yet.
Would anyone help by sending a postcard from Kenya. I’m happy to send a postcard from Australia in return. Thank you very much :)
I know many people (mostly men) struggle with depression in silence. Whenever my bouts kick in I can't find much help. I settle with antidepressants and self pep talks. Are there men suffering with depression here? How do you deal with it?
My girlfriend and me would like to travel to Kenya this August. Our country has a travel warning out for Kenya. So we're still a little unsure whether or not to go and I would like to ask some questions here. We would be flying to Nairobi, because my girlfriend was gifted an elephant orphan "adoption" and we want to visit her elephant, which is just outside of Nairobi. After that we would like go on a guided safari. Our total trip will be ten to 14 days.
Is it just me because ive never met anyone who has won any of the major advertised competition from corporates in Kenya.
I use telegram and someone sent me a link to a certain channel. A mutual friend's sister's nudes were put up on that site. It was really unfortunate as she was probably sending those pictures to the guy purely out of trust.
What does one gain from sending revenge porn? Why would anybody in their right mind do that?
This shit needs to end. Any solutions? How can we put an end to it?
This has nothing to do w mark being an ass. I rarely agree w nene, her karma is also coming, but kenya has been a destructive and jealous of others marriages.
Trump plan to add Tanzania and Sudan to his list of travel ban. If he went in effect Kenya may get a boost of tourism. Check BBC for link.
Hi, I made a post a couple weeks ago regarding a project I am working on for one of my university courses, that can be viewed below and it explains what I am working on in a little more detail. Below I have attached a survey that just asks a couple basic questions about what type of product you think would be the most effective for helping those in rural Kenya get water during the dry season. If you have a minute, I would really appreciate if you could fill it out for me. It will only take a minute. Additionally, if you would be willing to help again with short surveys in the future, please post below so I can send them to you. If you have any questions feel free to ask. Thanks everyone!
