We can all agree that Kenyans do some weird things in matatus, kwanza kama kuna jam, aki! It may get very hard sometimes to just mind your business, ata kama umevaa earphones. Kenyan matatus are one of the most common places to meet the strangest people, so you’ve probably run into these ones at some point.
They are basically talking very loudly on the phone all through the ride. Most of the time their phone is loud enough that you can even hear what the other person is saying. Kama ni muchene, hutataka ata kushuka!
You can’t miss them. Watacomplain the whole time vile dere anawaste time, na vile angepitia njia ingine. They’ll be sure to mention vile ata hao ni drivers na ati they have mad skills.
This is another loud one. Kwani mtajuaje anamake deals za millions na ni mtu important? Same wozzap na the ‘I know important people’ guy who keeps name dropping.
He treats the shared seat like his personal sofa and just takes up all the space. Ole wako kama umeketi kwa aisle, coz unaweza anguka ata!
They’ll say hi, and when you say it back to be polite, they’ll start telling you their life story. They won’t even care that you have earphones on, utaskiza by force!
