3. Mutati: This time round nitakuwa macho wadau kwani unga ya 1kg inavaa kutoa chapati gapi? Last Christmas kuna pahali nilichenzwa but hii naona nikimfukuza
4. Johntez: Tuli kuwa tuna koroga juice cola then tuna weka kwa chupa za plastic tuna enda ketembea Luanda kwa soko alafu jioni narudi Kaa nime buy calendar ya Man united
From the responses it is evident the passed celebrations used to be honoured compared to the 21st century. The celebrations couldn’t make any meaningful sense if there was no new clothes, no juice, and Chapati.
Compared to the recent, the life style has made life so expensive forcing people to adjust by all means to save a coin for the next date.
Numbers in Nairobi
Traffic Jam was recently experienced in Nairobi Town indicating how Kenyans were travelling to their ancestral lands for Christmas. Although travelling was high but Nairobi is still packed. Most of the people have chosen not to travel because of the increased transport cost. It should also be noted the education calendar has locked many since the schools have to resume in one weeks time.
