Why don't I have a sponsor?
19 July 2016, 18:05
Nairobi - I think in the past one week, I have been asked by three different men if I have a sponsor. And no, they were not asking because they were trying to be, or maybe one was but they were all young.
It has just become that sort of thing that makes for a ‘great’ conversation starter.
‘Si, you call the sponsor he buys us drinks?’
‘Are you sure you do not have a sponsor?’
Sometimes I just wish I could say, ‘I wish’ because I am really struggling with all these problems when it is just as easy as having someone else solve them for you apparently.
I am not going to say that I am too moral to be immoral.
Why don’t I have a sponsor? Well, honestly because I think I just meet poor men and where is the fun in eating a broke person’s money. The only sponsor you are allowed to get is the one that has too much money, he himself is also confused as to what to do with it. Not the one that is struggling to feed a family or pay fees.
Those are the kind that I have not met so far.
These struggling Nairobi men are so conish, with their pompous attitudes; trying to do and be what everyone else is. ‘He has two side-chicks, so I am also going to get myself one.’
So here you are as a lady, a man has taken you out in that ka-nice fancy car, borrowed a friend’s house or worse, he is house sitting for someone in Muthaiga,, told you a tale or two about his jet set life as an executive by day cum mogul 24/7; as a woman, that turns you on.
Soon enough you are hook line and sinker into his tales, spending money that is not there; then you get that oops moment and reality hits you when instead of the baby shower at Muthaiga, it is at the man’s bedsitter.
Or these other type that are married and looking for a pass time. A lady is taken to Naivasha for a weekend trip and that is the best thing ever.
These are the things that run through my head when am thinking of sponsors. These Nairobi men are proper sales men and these is why some ladies are yet to get a shocker.
Your sponsor is not a sponsor, trust me. Sponsors never struggle and no is not in there vocabulary nor wait when it comes to sponsees. Kenyan women think they are the first sponsees. You are just being spun a tale by these better halves of ours.
You have all just touched the surface; so maybe that is why I do not have one. If I have to do something, I would rather do it well and not these shoddy shenanigans. So I will just keep my problems for now.
When I eventually get one, you will be the first to know obviously!
