The other day I am in a Matatu from Nanyuki to Nairobi four days into the new year. Two hours into the three hour journey the usual chatter at the beginning of a journey has gone down and half the passengers are asleep while the other half is wondering(at least I was) how people get so comfortable to sleep in a matatu to the point of snoring?
Taking a break from my book, the passenger next to me strikes a conversation and since my mother taught me better and hasn’t the year just began? I engage and we have one of those chats about anything and NOTHING
Him: Holiday imeisha
Him: nikama elnino haikufika huku
Me: Ndio inaonekana
……..so on so forth you get the drift
Then the most interesting thing part happens
Him: so where do you live in Nairobi
Him: Do you know (forgot the name) church near that place
Me: no Ive never heard of it
Him: You can’t have missed it has a really big sign next to the highway
Me: ill look out for it
Him: IT BELONGS TO MY COUSIN
Me: huh (while clearly in need of this deliverance)
But Really people….Really…. when did we get here?
We are now identifying churches with people?
Anyway, I hope you’ve all enjoyed your holidays and are ready for the 2016 share of theatre……I hope and pray they have great things planned for us.
Na kwa hayo machache…… Tembelea theatre iliyo karibu na wewe
