How much 'chai' do you give security men and watchmen?

The guards at the security gate keep asking me for ‘chai’ and I always say next time. Main reason is when I was in Nairobi, I used to give mmoja until the rest knew so kila saa nilikuwa naombwa chai and I used to give mpaka I realized watanimaliza. On one hand I know they are poorly paid so the little extra money they get goes a long way but on the other hand, ukizoea kuwapa pesa wote start demanding na saa zingine sikuwa na pesa enough ya errands, parking na chai. Kwanza pale Thika Road Mall sio mchezo. How much do you give?

I give them what I have, when I am feeling loaded I give them 100 bob saa yenye sina I give them 20 bob. The only reason I do this ni juu ya gari; don’t want to come find my mirrors missing.

Mimi sijafika hapo bado,i however think niko karibu coz wameanza kuniita mkubwa.

I pity them at times coz most of them if you look around unaonaga wakipewa kazi za zaida sio zao,probably at no extra pay,to entice the customers to enter the restuarant,welcome guests and show them around, Act as customer service kwa banks e.t.c

Avaricious talkers. Some people are just tight fisted. How do you get the audacity to ask such a question? Ugamu iko kwa bone marrow. Make somebody’s day.

How much do you give per day?

And do you believe that when you give 20 Bob your mirrors will not be stolen?

I have never had my mirrors stolen so yes.

Unapatia MTU atatembea mpaka kawangware fombe?

Organisations pay 20k upwards for a day guard and another 20k upwards for night guards. I mean, most govt institutions.

Halafu, the security companies pay their guards 7k aki…

Yaani unatoka job mtu amekauka mdomo anakuuliza ka utakam weekend job …ju he knows ukikam unaweza kumuona or ukitumanishana lunch, utamtumia pia yake…

yaani its bad
