What I like about Kikuyu women

04 April 2016, 21:07 Shakila Alivitsa

Nairobi - I am not going to generalize so don’t get your panties all in a bunch. Over the weekend Bob Collymore got married. When I read the news I actually thought these internet people had gone and photo shopped a photo of them coming out of Daddy Owen’s wedding and decided to make stuff up. I could not let the story go though because I am just that nosy.

So yes he is married and that is not what is getting Kenyan folks attention but the fact that she is Kikuyu. Because I am that girl I am just going to say what everyone is thinking and is mad about. She is Kikuyu. She only must have married him because of the money and nothing else. That is not news but we all know that we recently got a behind the scenes look at his pay-cheque. Kikuyu women like to deal with figures and not hearsay.

Other women, they get carried away by hearsay but not Kikuyu ladies. Other women get carried away by what a man is boasting and showing. She does not check if everything is true. Other women forget that bachelors borrow houses to show off and lie how they live there. Or borrow cars to take you for a date forgetting that he could only be a driver but since you have such high expectations of his wallet he will show you. Rushing to go get pregnant and gets a surprise when she delivers in bed sitter (there is nothing wrong with a bed sitter just telling you what some of you do). A certain ‘lady’ was telling her friend how she had captured a really big fish. A certain big league player and how she was about to be the lady in his life. To make sure it stuck, she goes and pokes holes in a condom to make the situation present itself in a couple of months. Young lady did not know the man was only a bouncer. Women, you see your life? Then you will start crying how men are liars but what were you doing? Side note to men: Better carry your own protection.

Kikuyu ladies are smart. They like the behind the scenes facts and that is why I like them. They deal with facts. Not what you say. What he said. What she said. What she heard; but what she knows to be a fact. Who cannot admire that?

It is not the men alone that are mad but the women are too but why are you mad? Men are mad because Kikuyu women are apparently known for only looking at the wallet. Most women do that. The women are mad because how dare she marry him and take him off the market? Did you even know the man was single? Did you send a text and not get a reply? Did you sit on your hands and wait for holy sanctimony to get you where you need to go and be? Kikuyu ladies never wait for Karma and the Holy Spirit to sort their lives. They pray and go and fast track the process. I like them. Women like sitting on their hands and praying (there is nothing wrong with prayer only that God helps those who help themselves) and seeing some funny pastors in certain dingy places.

 I always tell women; if you want a man, tell him. If you want to date him, tell him what you want from him. I didn’t even know this man was single-always thought he had a family back in his country of origin. But see, this Wambui girl met Bob Collymore and she knew she wanted Bob. Did she pray? I do not know but she knew God can only do so much in giving her eyes to see what she wanted and go after it. The rest was up to her. Now after three years of dating, she is married. Some of you are still waiting for a ring after five years of dating. You are not even sure if you are in a relationship; if the man is yours.  LMFAO! You are approaching 40 and you are hoping the man will see. See what? You give him an ultimatum and he leaves you but soon enough you hear he is getting married.

Kikuyu ladies don’t play and that is why I like them. You cannot pull some crap with a Kikuyu woman and men know that. You will make some crude jokes about men not wanting them because they cut significant stuff off but if that was true, Wambui has just bagged a monthly millionaire. Some of you are struggling with free loaders talking about holding someone down. There is nothing wrong with growing with someone but know whom you are choosing to do that with and most women do not know how to evaluate a man’s character. That is what Kikuyu woman do and are good at. They evaluate the environment before getting into hot soup.

Most of these cases of a man leaving after he has made it are rarely found with Kikuyu women.  Just look at the prominent men. Find me one married to a Kikuyu lady and line them up for me for those falling in a category of those left. If you can make ten-you win; just another reason for me to like those women. ‘You better not play with me when I get you where you are going.’ Other ladies are crying, ‘Oh he left me. Now what will I do. After all that I have done for him. Karma is going to have my back.’ Where? These ladies are usually there every step of the way. He can do what he wants but at the end of the day, she will be there at the gate just waiting. Making him break a sweat; I tell you even if he was having certain thoughts, he will not even act on them.

I love these women. So you be mad, stay mad but that missus has arrived where she was going. You continue going through strife talking about being patient. There is patience and there is PATIENCE. Know which one to apply and when.
