I don’t know why ladies in Kenya treat you badly when you are in the company of a White person. An investor from Canada had decided to invest in some of our projects in the company in exchange for some shares of the company. I being the sharp chap I was called upon to negotiate on behalf of the company. Since it was nearing lunch time we had to talk about it over lunch and Mr. Arnold (investor) chose some restaurant where we could have lunch and talk about it. I was given enough money to cater for the expenses. Basically I as a Kenyan wasn’t being treated well by the waitresses. I could make an order but then ahe would be like “aaai we ngoja…si umeingia saa hii tu”, when Mr. Arnold insisted for it to be hurried up, the waitresses were even humble to him " Coming sir, is there anything else I can get you?“, Nikijaribu kuitisha yangu naskia " Aaaii we ni nini si nimekuambia ungojee”. It was such a show of disrespect to me. The waitresses were rude to me. I think they had the idea that he would tip them heavily. But since I was the one calling the shots I gave her excess money and asked for change right away. You would have seen the reaction on their faces when they knew I was the one calling the shots.
Have you ever had any experiences of mistreatment when in presence of a foreignor probably a White??
hehehehe brother, you are riding a flying horse on company money yet you need special treatment, learn to be humble and make ur own money ndo uharakishe waitress, wewe ulikua uko show bizz na pesa ya kambi, serves u right
I believe you. Hakuna kitu poa kama kuwa mzungu in this world, everything moves for you. How were you dressed? As a black you must dress for the occasion if you want respect. Vaa suti, nyonga tai, rolex, the works…otherwise people will assume you’re the help.
If ni lazima iwe hivi then I will justify OP’s behaviour. Sigwes nyonga tai na suti just to please a waiter in this hot climate of ours. Lakini pia there are those with dress codes, as a guybwho doesn’t adhere to such I simply avoid them to avoid such shenanigans. Lakini pia Nimeenda hoteli kubwa kadhaa na rarely percentage ya Wazungu ilishinda ya Waafrika. Na hizi hoteli zote food huchukua time before iletwe na sio kama zile restaurants za tao tumezoea food kuletwa after 5 mins so maybe op was restless too
