dare ask you is your lifestyle Nairobi worthy? Nairobians are people, who like pleasure
and in Swahili I would say,’Ni watu wa kupenda raha.’
Raha when loosely translated means
pleasure,and Lol,Nairobi provides plenty
of this and the satisfaction that comes
This the pride that makes us a proud
society, a people living on the first
line,seeing possibilities and working to
make ends meet.
Yet will all this be satisfied of who we are,out lifestyle and what makes us a robust
Nairobi raha does not need to about sex; it does not need to be about gossip. Yes it
does not need to be about pornography .Our lifestyle defines who we are, what a city we
are building and what makes us tick.
When I fell in love with Nairobi, I choose to make it may home reason being that it
provides what I love most, opportunities, opportunities and more opportunities.That is
my city, which is my pleasure.
Way back in 2008 when my family and I choose to settle here I remember asking my
partner this direct question. What pleasure does the city provide to you? Here was her
answer, “My pleasure is what I can be able to do. Being able to shop when I want, taking
coffee at my preferred restaurant, enjoying the pleasant weather….being able to raise my
kids….being able to enjoy myself’’.
What a better way to agree. My pleasure includes watching live English premier league
games every weekend, taking coffee at my preferred joint, going to the local Stadia to
watch local teams battle out for football or rugby glory.
On Saturday or Sunday afternoon when it is not a match day, I would likely be found
at Nairobi National Park,Nairobi National Museum or better still watch the latest
movie at Kenya Cinema.
I do not know your favorite Nairobi raha is all about. But one thing is for sure, let not you
pleasure be your master but rather be master over your pleasure.
Ji enjoy ( Enjoy yourself).
