Frogs in the river.

Bob Collymore, CEO Safaricom just got married to a smart, beautiful independent and driven woman but that’s not why I am writing this post today. Everyone gets married at some point. George Clooney broke so many hearts when he married that Persian woman(the lawyer) and we moved on from it. The prince broke hearts internationally when he married Kate and we simply stopped giving a rats ass about him. I did not even know Bob was single to begin with. I am writing this today because all that most mediocres picked from that amazing union was her tribe, the fact that she is alleged to have children from her previous relationship and her skin color.

First of all, single women out there are the strongest kind of women anyone can be with. Single independent women for that matter. They have learnt to be their best kind of women and role models for their children and that never ceases to be no matter what. Not only will single mothers give you what you deserve as a great man who has been supportive with what she values most(her children) but they will also show you why it never worked out with most people through letting you experience the beauty that comes with the strength and love of a great woman.

After the news was out, light skinned and dark skinned memes were everywhere  making it seem like skin color is all we have to live for. In my post here we talked about skin color and fake advertisement in Kenya and how most of you are going to be unable to procreate what you are because everything about your appearance is a sham and the brain lacks enough capacity to make it work for your children. I call it short lived dreams. Most women define themselves with their body and skin color. Nothing more. Anyway, back to Bob getting married: people bashed this union insinuating that Kikuyu women often ended up with our most eligible bachelors.

Apparently, most good guys marry Kikuyu women. Well… I do not agree with that assumption or rather: I do not care if it is true or not because most Kikuyu women I know are hardworking and you can never dispute that unless you are a fool or you literally do not know hard working women at all but let’s just talk about why: as other people get married to people they beget, others spend time talking about it. The Kikuyu woman Bob had married holds a masters degree, has her own company and all you have is an ass and a few Instagram likes, free bundles, storo bonus, some free make up you won on a competition online and a few fake friends but that’s none of my business. You deserve a high value man just like a hard working, educated and smart woman.

Kenya is a hotbed of socialites because we have killer bodies and the internet is an easy to access thing. We have free WiFi most places. One can easily access internet as compared to a book, food or shelter. From Huddah Monroe to Vera Sidika and way down to the lowest definition of socialites such as the infamous Vanessa Chettle and Corazon Kwamboka, these women do their hustle and promote parties, fight in Kempinski, call each other plastic thanks to plastic surgeries, call each other transparent women because they got rid of their melanin and steal ideas from hard working citizens or rather lie about it (read about it on here and that must be a turn on; to most intelligent men. Right? High value men would certainly love to spend the rest of their lives with these women. Which high value man wouldn’t??? Clearly, these women would excite them. Right? They would challenge their brains and blow their minds off not with a stellar blow job but with the greatest most intellectual ideologies and actions ever. It would be an off the chain union that would entail building one another. You get 10,000 Instagram likes and voilà, you are an entrepreneur! You are ready to support a man’s vision.

Those mentioned women above, are most women’s role models in this generation. You get to sit at home and hope to be as famous as our socialites because you have a great ass and a nice face. You party 24/7 because you are a student and hence have zero responsibility as your age-mate sells jewelry online making a profit as meager as 200 shillings per day. That’s how everyone starts. Everyone starts small.Anyway…. If you look at it, there is no such name as Wanja or Wambui or Njeri being flashed here on the list of the most beautiful, famous women on the Internet and heck: I have friends from the very central Kenya that we are now stereotyping who have asses far bigger than those of any mentioned women above, a great skin and a killer personality.

My close friend Wambo recently graduated and started a thrift shop. She sells Mitumbas and she is an actuary. Most of the women that demand respect ONLINE and wish for intelligent men  to be with them often act like a woman was meant to be objectified sexually. As you wear that thong and parade yourself on Instagram for 4578 likes, a lady from central Kenya just started a trash collection business or the honey sucker business and soon, she is a class higher than yours. All people do in your life is slide into your DM and bruise your ego. Something you do not realize until it is too late.

I often have the urge to talk about things. It’s in my blood. It’s who I am. When I started writing, (I am talking on a personal level): I had a lot of readers from Europe more than anywhere else despite the fact that I started this blog initially hoping to solely talk to and interact with milleniums in Kenya and Africa as I understood our plight. Slowly, my Kenyan readers started reading my blog, I started getting email subscriptions and basically hit my target on the number of views daily. Most of my readers are honestly Kikuyu. Especially those that engage me on gender and diversity issues. Do the others have no internet access or I have to insult them to get their attention or matters that make sense that motivate people mean nothing to them?

I am not saying that the rest of us do not do it i.e read. I am simply stating that numbers do not lie. Stats never fail anyone and my statistics make me realize that life is what you make it. I have never seen a reading nation that fails  or a failure that loves reading. A person that reads thirsts for knowledge and that thirst often drives them to be better than a fool who doesn’t. Maybe, people should try being the best they can be and beget what they are before victimizing hard working people. Anyway, as you sit in your small house hating on a woman enjoying her massage at the spa after a long hard day of work, start striving to be that woman. It’s time to ask oneself, “why them?”No, it’s not about being pretty when the Kardashians set the bar too high. no way. It is about what else you bring to the table apart from a vagina, a great body and a beautiful face. What more is there to you than what is seen by the eye?

Turns out, some people do well working on themselves while others feel better trashing the people that work on themselves and that’s the difference between a low value woman and a high value woman. Some of you are nothing but mediocre and mediocrity begets mediocrity. All you do is feel sorry for yourself and talk endlessly about other people. All you do is work on your back. All you do is dream but never work towards anything.

Honestly, as you waste time talking about people or trying to be other people or making assumptions about things that add no value to your life, you end up being a mediocre. We end up being bitter old hags who consequently end up with fellow bitter old hags. Then we start victimizing single mothers, we become tribal and the cycle continues. A tribe does not marry a tribe. We simply beget what we are. Truth be told, some people are so comfortable with average, they hate the go getters. When you raise your children average like you were raised, you are raising mediocrity. You are committing a crime to the very mind we were given to make things better for us. Stop having socialites and goons for role models and pace to be better. Push yourself to be better. Hey.. Start now. Maybe you will be the next billionaire instead of asking yourself why certain people marry the rich, be the rich!

Anyway, keep working hard on your comments as others work their butt off and you will attract exactly what you are. A lazy and poor dimwit who knows nothing but negativity. If I was a Kenyan man, I would marry a smart woman that would make me a better person, support my dreams and if that woman happens to be a Kikuyu woman no matter where am from, well and good. A woman isn’t her tribe, she is her attitude and some women have the worst attitude on earth!

So I think we as females & African females should learn to empower each other. We can all learn something from each other. Articles like this in my opinion are spreading more hate than love. So when you point your finger at another woman you really are pointing fingers at yourself. We are all going through the human experience and are in search of one thing only Love and Acceptance. Lets love more and hate less.

  20. Well brought out aspects I must say,women we don’t have to go walking around nude or putting so much make up that one loses their real look to attract men.And men,go for women with real substance,ones who care for more than make up,clothes and looks.

    HOWEVER

    This semester,we’ve got an amazing professor,an African American woman who is passionate about making us ready for graduate school.In our first classes she couldn’t stand us using the term,”tribe” (derogatory).Again the views that one ethnic group is better than the other ,you know what she’d say,” excuse me miss Ruthie,that’s absolutely positively wrong,that is a construction”.Anything constructed can be deconstructed.Young minds it’s our duty to bring the change.

    You know Oh kikuyu ‘s,oh Luo’s ,oh kale’s…so and so are better than the others.Lets pause there and re-read.My view,that sounds backward,unexposed.That might have been the culture we found ,but hey,why then are you in school?,it’s us who can change this view.you know what this breeds,”A culture of dislike—-violence”.

    Thirteen weeks later,I’ve come to see what such views have done in the past and are doing currently.Scholarly,such ethnic views are wrong,what of the good book? It isn’t stated anywhere that God identifies us with our ethnic origins.

    Dear writer,I don’t care what other people said about Bob Collymore’s wife,wait I see what they said ….you know what their basis was?Stereotype and you responded on the same grounds…..all that needs to be deconstructed ,it isn’t written permanently anywhere that only ladies from a certain region are entrepreneurs ….I know little of the socialites ,that too…it isn’t ingrained anywhere that they come from a certain region…..quit reliving colonization,divide and rule that’s what was forced on us

    My view Bob Collymore married one of us,a Kenyan !!

  24. Well I love your blogs but in this ones you felt a little short for me.
    1 I did not expect you to pick the tribal perspective in this conversation that was shallow,depressing and desperate all the 42 tribes can’t read your blog so deal with it. As a mum I expected you to encourage competitiveness not mentioning people’s names and stereotyping socialites are always going to be there so it’s upon people like you to mentor young women to make the right choices.
    2 No one wrote to God and said I want to be born in this or that tribe you are the guys who should be encouraging patriotism.
    I understand you were in that wedding and you want to defend the bride but you didn’t do her justice she is a simple lady who’s life might have not been cosy for her but she never gave up she struggled and made it that is what you should have told young people.
    You never know about this life the person who will save your daughters life may come from one of those tribes you hate because they don’t read your blog trying living with that. Caroline you gotta learn how to talk to young folks like a mother or someone who wants to influence them name calling won’t work they will simply avoid you.
    And you wonder y young people don’t like you but prefer Julie Gichuru yap!.
    One thing I know Bob Colimore didn’t marry because his wife had a master’s or even has a company. He loved the woman and mother she is and most of all her simplicity I guess that is something that you will never know 🙂

  25. SUPER Khachina! I don’t know Wambui but like every worthy women out there she deserves who is worthy of her. Bob Collymore dug himself a Gold! So what shallow MINDS?? If Wambui was not happy with her former husband she has a right to change her course. If it was Wambui sister marrying a millionaire no one would attack him. Women should style up and learn to respect other… I find it so pathetic when a woman posts something like, ‘shame on Wambui for leaving her husband! The fuck she doesn’t even know who Wambui is and she is there posting nonsense! Bob and Wambui… Will move on with or without your bashing! I quit my marriage years back & was called all sorts of names by people who I thought I knew, and it took some 8years to realize how wrong they were and swallowed their humble pie to an extent of apologizing to me, do I care? NO.. because It was my life to choose between an abusive marriage or my kids & I!😆😆 I think if I had met a ‘Bob Collymore’ my story would have gone like this ‘Kitui Kamba woman casts ‘Kamuti'(black magic) to marry a millionaire!
    To the mediocres out there attacking Wambua, even humble man will not look your way even if you come wrapped in a million dollars, you will still stink of your shallowness! What has a name got to do with anyone! You will not be surprised the so critics are useless brainless idiots who spent all their time on Social media searching for good stories to negatively comment, you will never find a constructive comment even thought they spent the whole day on Social media and wonder if they have time for constructive stuff in their lives.
    A person speak better of themselves. Those who are attacking Wambui are the category that spent their time hunting for rich men and because the number is now minus Bob Collymore they are bitter….😊 😊 Wambui is a kikuyu & Bob knows that so critics don’t matter.. She is a beautiful woman who stole Collymore ‘s heart in a way no other woman would. I would say to those bashing Wambui… Bob chose her not you and she chose him not you so deal with it shallow minded people ! PARTING SHOT… It’s not about killer faces, curvy looks, social standing, heavy pockets, what you can offer between your legs.. NO..its a great heart that knows where to touch another heart, humbleness, caring, listening and understanding. This is what completes not even a woman but a man too!
    That’s my version. Mngongoo.

  30. Interesting read I must say! First, you’ve gladly addressed some of my persistent thoughts surrounding the issue of our (most Kenyans) perpetual tribalism. People who think and reason along tribal lines are so naive and I hope we’ll soon translate your blog post in all our languages, for everyone to read .

    Stereotyping is one of the biggest problem we (you) should talk about, we as Kenyans suffer this disease. Sometimes we subconsciously judge too quickly and or try to make it sound like we are not passing a judgment.. For instance when you as the writer state this: “From what I have observed, a specific people from certain 5 to 7 tribes of out the 42 tribes in various parts of Kenya read and comment on my blog more often than others…… I am not saying that the rest of us do not do it i.e read. I am simply stating that numbers do not lie.”. It’s kind of naive and shady (counter-intuitive at some point).

    Media is yet the biggest perpetrators of tribalism and divide, to a great extent…. Increasing the level of stereotypes in Kenya. Let’s take the common, famous “Churchill Show” that airs every Sunday evening (when families have gathered to be entertained) as an example. Almost every comedian try to make people laugh either by using their mother-language accent or talk about something unique about their people…. No problem, but when they start to compare people in Runda and Kibera, students from Alliance High and Kamukunji, what message are they passing to the society? Stereotypes!

    Anyways, I hope we soon see an end in these cliches and we focus on things that matter. Women (and men as well) establish careers, business and add value to our lives. Thank you for this nice article, serves as a direct message to our younger/current generation and the socialite wannabes.

  58. “You have to understand that gold-digging whores have been raised that way by their mothers who planted crazy ideas into them on what a man should be. And it’s the conflicting messaging that threatens the moral fabric of Kenyan society, where on one hand they are “taught” how to be independent, while on the other, are conditioned to be good wives as long as the man is providing.” ultimately the wage of sin is death. BREAK A UNION THAT GOD BROUGHT TOGETHER AND IN THE PROCESS BEAUTIFUL RESEMBLING FRUITS CAME UP. His wrath descends upon you like plague.

    1. Great read! i couldn’t agree with you more…! But I don’t understand why people blame mothers when it comes to raising these ‘gold-digging whores’.When did children start becoming a responsibility to mothers only? So where are the fathers when their children are being turned into these ‘whores’? I believe these ‘whores’ have been raised alongside brothers…does this mean that these ones turned into manwhores or what? If someone chooses to be a whore never blame it on the parents because it is a decision they chose to make themselves; even if their own mother was one…
      Can people learn to give some credit to these parents; the day you will be one and end up with a thug for a child you will not appreciate people saying that it is your fault as their parent yet you never ever supported that kind of behavior so don’t do to others what you wouldn’t like done to you.
