The Lies are never ending. Lets be real, most if not all of our Kenyan Parents have all lied to us about one thing or another. Let’s not even start about the Money games they play with us i.e.
Si unisaidie thao mbili nitakurudishia?
And when that time comes, you will be reminded of why you exist in the first place,
“Yaani unaniulizia pesa ni kama kwa hii nyumba umewai kosa chakula, stima, na nguo, sindio? Nani alikusomesha? Kwanza hio pesa yote unafaa kurudisha juu yenyewe niliuza ng’ombe kusomesha ng’ombe ingine……..
Be ye not deceived. Our parents have been running game on us ever since we were born. There are some lies that we busted them on as kids and there are other lies we uncovered as adults. We don’t blame them though because parenting is complicated fam and we are just hard to deal with it sometimes. Here are a few hilarious lies that we have heard from our Kenyan parents throughout our childhood.
Kenyan parent: “When I was your age I had to walk 4 kilometres to school, bare foot, on ice, up a mountain, by myself and you get driven to school everyday in my car”
Kenyan parent: ” I can always tell when you are lying to me. Remember your mother knows everything. You think I don’t know about what you did recently?”
Us: Me? MIMI?!
3.About following the rules
Kenyan parent: ” When I was your age I was very obedient. Ask your grandmother. Sometimes I look at you and wonder whose child you are. Why can’t you be like me?”
Us and Our Grandmothers: Wait. What?!!
Kenyan parent: ” When I was in school, i got all A’s all the time. Whose brain did you inherit? This thickness did not come from my side of the family. Are you even really my child? Mscheeew!”
Weh! As you can see we have been carried makodofia (kubebwa ki avocado) our whole lives. Parents are out here running circles around us. Tell us in the comments below lies that your kenyan parents have told you over the years.
