Valentines Day tips for the 'Mpango wa Kando'
10 February 2015, 14:08
Nairobi - I do not think I will ever leave this man alone especially when
it involves him juggling the many women he has in his life; Danson Mungatana.
He has three wives, I am not sure if all three got a wedding but I was done
writing about V-day until a thought occurred to me. One, I like this guy
because he has tried to do all his philandering above board, he knew he is not
good at keeping secrets so if a beauty catches his eye, he just wifes her. Then gain 2. It got me
wondering, how does his V-day look like? You know, the thing about the mistress
is that she will be sorted either on the 13th or 15th or
at a later date. But some men in Kenya, like Mungatana, have all their women
lined up because they decided to be legal about it.
Maybe they are all mature and do not put too much stock on
the day, but a woman is still a woman and she expects something. Even though
she has hated you over the last year, has been angry at you for a while; she
will expect something. He has his cake cut out for him because he has a busy
weekend with a day set aside for each one or maybe one will have breakfast, the
other lunch and the other dinner. Trick is, the one that gets the 14th
is the favorite and the other two will be losing which will make up for double
discomfort for him. Because I am not seeing all of them sitting at a table and
having a cozy dinner all together.
The following are reasons why the 14th can be
such a bad day for a lot of mpango wa
It is a reminder of the position you hold on the mantle
Like on a fireplace in the living room or that place where
you place your family photos, you have that one photo that has been given a
place of distinction. It has a bigger frame, or is higher than the rest. The
same applies with the wife and the side
chick. She gets the first priority when it comes to such occasions and it
serves as a constant reminder to the mpango
wa kando that she will always be second to her no matter how much he
professes the opposite.
You cannot complain
The married women and the legit girlfriends have the right
to be disgruntled about any stunts this man pulls. They will also have a
shoulder to lean on and be consoled if they are wronged. She (side chick) on
the other hand cannot do the same because she will not receive pity but
judgment and scorn because what she is doing is wrong. Does not matter the
explanations the mpango wa kando
gives because she lost the right to complain by being with a taken man.
Pretending that you do not like the day
Your sister has a man
to go to, your best friends have a man to go to, and basically most women
around you will have someone to spend it with. So while they are there gushing
and being excited you have to pretend that you have better things to do or
places to be because you will be alone while they are not.
If anything exciting happens for you it is because someone
else’s plans crashed and burned
If you are a side chick have plans that do not involve other
people because what happens is that the only way your plan with your friend or
your sponsor works out is if their dates crash and burn. So all the side chicks
are currently crossing fingers that ‘her’ man’s woman will have an important
business trip or meeting or will fall sick or have a morbid accident. If not,
she is praying that one of her friend’s men cancels so that she can throw a
pity party and justify why she chose to be with a taken man. Because all men
are dogs, at least ‘hers’ is open about it.
Valentine’s Day is about love, what you do destroys the very
definition of love
Another reason ampango
wa kando cannot complain, she cannot justify why he should spend lover’s
day with her. What she does with him rarely involves the real love St Valentine
died for because she gets sponsored for what she is doing. She destroys what is
another woman’s right.
That being said, if you are a man, you are justified to not
show up at the mpango wa kandos because either way just show up with something expensive
and it will be forgotten. It is Danson that I am not sure how he will take care
of all his women on this day. Chances are he is bound to anger all of them
unless he can get all of them in a room together.
