Kenya, like all of the countries in Africa has a pretty large gap between the vast majority of the local people and the urban elite centered in Nairobi.

This is just an example of how Ugandan men do not regard women as independent-thinking human beings but as property to be used and disposed of at will. A man will not marry a woman for her fine intellect. That may be what he thinks but he and the woman in question are actually deluded.

Peter Barigye (not real name) works at a prestigious accountancy firm. “This girlfriend of mine thinks I’m stupid, but I’m biding my time”, he assured me. After about six months, it eventually dawned on him that in her eyes, he was ‘just a friend’.
When I turned away from items literally thrust into my face by street traders, the cursing that followed was enough to put a sailor to shame.
“Unafikiri wewe ni wa kwanza, tumeona wengi,” some said in Swahili.
