Kenyans will never lack a story of how they went through Nairobis dirty tricks .Apparently, the days of highwaymen are long gone: today’s thieves have ever more ingenious ways of parting you from your cash.
Some are quite obvious: one trick is to offer you cash to put money through your bank account.
Here is their story
How I was conned in Nairobi
It was on a Friday tuko pale Ku tukizurura
Three guys see us, approached and told us they needed dancers tomorrow morning and they would pay each one of us 3k tupatane apo nje ya black diamond westlands.
Kuskia 3k njisas io pesa yote kujitingisha mbele ya camera for a few minutes tu
Wale madame tulikuwa na wao wakachukua their numbers na ikakuwa its a date
Ili ujue shetani ni mbaya
We were heading to annex kukunywa chrome
Tulipiga about turn tukienda stage ndo tukuwe sober and up by 6am tupatane pale odeon
By 6 I was up na nkaambia mathe nimeenda westie job casual ntarudi by 10am
Nilikuwa nimenunua a new phone na pesa ya helb na was sure ingetake picha kali so I can flourish my Instagram career
Tukapatana apo odeon we were 13 of us some sijui kwenye walitoka overnight
Tukafika pale naivas ya westie and the guys picked us up
They separated us into two groups as there were two different places to dance
Sisi ao kwa a vacant room apo next to black D tukapewa nguo za traditional dancers na kupakwa macolour kwa uso
Tukaanza kudance kanungo kama tumeface ukuta tukiambiwa tusigeuke
After dancing for like 5 minutes
Na nguo zetu viatu simu and everything we had
Tuko pale na nguo zakaa za wachawi na bila viatu no one has a phone
Tukatoka nje tukikaa luanda magere
Msichana mmoja akaingia kwa kinyozi na kuomba phone
The dad came kuanza akacheka
