A Boom

Wewe Vasha wewe katuona sisi bwege ati sisi bata mzinga na wanataka chicks (18-24 yrs.) Sasa tufanye nini sisi isipokuwa kuvumilia. Na vile maisha yamekuwa ngumu; kavagara ndio hiyo 230. Kwa nini wasiongezee tu Unga wa Dola na 210? Hawa waséé haki, Petroli ndio hiyo, mafuta halisi ya kupikia, sitaki hata kutaja. Nawezajipata nikipiga duru gakii mogaka, the way mama would put her hands on her head and release a shrill scream so that her voice would transcend through the whole valley as she warned people of the cattle thieves’ whereabout. (Mambatīrīire ya Gatūnai.’
Ever since Uhuru Muigai Kenyatta announced that the Safari rally would be an annual event; our men have been counting the months, the weeks, the minutes and the seconds like a young boy awaiting to go on a school trip. I mean the other day my fourth grader was going on a trip and he was even telling me that he was dreaming of being left by the school bus.
This thing has now turned from being nostalgic to being traumatic. Ooh if we could turn back the hand of time to those childhood days when that vroooommm vroooommm brought intense joy and reckless abandon and pure bliss. But now all I can think of now is, ‘kuambia Siri Kali iingilie Kati.’
So here we are trying to feign some semblance of sanity and watch the vroom vroom from our screens like the desperate housewives we are albeit without Baileys. We can’t wait for Monday to usher them back as Bahati’s ‘mtaachana tu’ and Randy Travis ‘I told you so’ play back to back. And especially the part that says, ‘I told you that you would come crawling back and asking me to take you…’
Meanwhile business is booming in Vasha and as the dust rises with each roar kids are making memories, while others are being made. 40 weeks and it will be a baby vrooom sorry boom.
Vasha wewe 🤣🤣
