15 Kenyan Characters That Can Annoy You To Death

Heh! Let me tell you…in this Kenya, there are people who can drain the little life remaining out of you.

And if you’re like me, who has zero patience and tolerance for bullshit, then you’ll agree that there are some Kenyan characters who we all hate.

Hate is a strong word; let’s change that to, characters who we are not fond of. Reasons? Well, it could range from not being chap chap, to being too bossy, a case of inferiority complex or simply being annoying as hell.

Here are some of those characters:

1. Tribalists.

Must you propel hate and tribalism? Does that make you feel better? You’ll find so many tribalists on Social Media. Cowards who hide behind their keyboards and propel hate.

3. Rude receptionists and waiters/waitresses.

Nothing irks me more than bad service! If you’re looking for a job in the service industry, the least you can do is be nice. Everyone you meet is going through their own struggles and in all honesty, there’s no need to be bitchy, just spread positive vibes…

4. Speaking or rude, have you ever encountered those watchmen who grill you at the gate?

Eish, you’d think you’re negotiating to enter the gates of heaven. Some won’t even let Uber drivers in SMH.

5. And speaking of Uber, nobody can stand those rude Uber drivers…they need to seriously chill out!

6. OLX Online market places Conmen and other Kenyan conmen in general.

If you haven’t been conned in Nairobi, consider yourself lucky.
