UKABILA NA UDINI WA EAST AFRICA NI VIRUS MPYA ?
I was very happy today after Sitting with different background of people and religion at the Senate and I thought how about mention this to East Africans dont be like Jerusaleem !
The Kenyan Tribal Test and Tanzania religious test !
Are You A Tribalist? or Mdini ! Here is a quick test to help you find out for sure…
(a) At the sight of this article headline, you sigh and wonder why this blogger just keeps on bringing up this boring topic of tribalism and Udini and why he keeps on insisting that it is the major issue in Kenyaand Tanzania today while you know every well it is not. You don't need a psychologist to tell you that every time you hit a raw nerve or you start getting touchy, iko kitu is coming .
(b) What is the tribe or religion of your spouse? Did you fall in love with somebody else first (of a different tribe) but chose to marry your current spouse because "it was the wise thing to do?"
(c) Even worse, are you married to a member of another tribe but view the marriage as temporary and look at your children as belonging to a different tribe from yourself? Do you frequently make comments of your children like; "you certainly did not pick up that habit from our people." Like Julie Gichuru star of Kenya media she is Indian and Black how do we call her by tribe !
How about we talk about Security instead of Udini and Ukabila < and Proect Terror not harm our home land and stop intertain Udini na Ukabila ?
My first wife was a Mpemba Fyoko and in the first few years of our marriage her friends (Mashambenga !used to greet her with the remarks, "Are you still with that Man?"
(d) Do you get a warm comfortable feeling whenever you see on TV or read about a presidential candidate hailing from your tribe? Mpemba tribe the biggest tribe kule KIJIWENI !
(e) Do you get abusive to this blogger over his comments on tribalism or Udini in East Africa ?
(f) When you meet a person for the first time, do you subconsciously reserve your judgement until you find out what tribe or religion they are? The way to tell this is when the first question you really want to ask every time, is what tribe they are, but instead you ask leading questions like, how do you spell your second name HAMAD or John? Or "who do you think should be the next president be Mgalatia au Mswahili ?"
KALENJINI small tribe !
(g) Do you remain unmoved when Kenya wins yet another 3,000 metres steeplechase race, just because the winner reminds you of Moi's tenure as president? The facts are that no tribe has brought more positive international glory to Kenya than the runners who mostly hail from the Kalenjin tribe.
Or Bkhresa or Pembans who brought Interpreneuship at Bandari ya Salama !
(h) Are you one of those people who made a certain tribal radio station or Blog an overnight success? Are you one of the people who saw red when it looked like President Moi was about to ban that particular radio station ? or President KiKwete about to close only Muslim redio !
(i) Do you always look at the national soccer side selections in terms of which tribe has the majority of players like Simba or Yanga ?
(j) Do you feel irritated whenever you hear a certain tribal language being used in your presence or within ear shot?
(k) Do you believe that some tribes are more corrupt than others?
(l) Do you always love to talk your mother tongue at the least excuse?
(m) Do you use your mother tongue to gossip about people even when they are within hearing range?
(n) Do you get a warm fuzzy feeling every time somebody talks to you in your mother tongue?
(o) Do you insist on conversing in your mother tongue even when you know that there are several people in your company or around you who do not understand it? It matters little that you take the trouble to translate what you have said later.
(p) Look at your email in box now. Is most of the mail you receive from members of a particular tribe or religion ? Could that tribe happen to be the same tribe that your mother and father belong to?
(q) Do you always visit a certain web site that bears the name of your tribe or religion ?
(r) Or even worse, does your email address contain the name of your tribe some where like ALbimany tribe ?
