An Average Life
My name is John Wakaba. your local average kenyan living a local average life in a local average estate.The name estate should not deceive you. It means a place where all the buildings will collapse or sink very soon. Because your local average contractor is keen on siphoning building funds to buy illicit brew.
Of course your local average illicit brewer has little concern for the lives of his customers so its only fair that when a contractor dies in the brewery then the brewer should die in a house the contractor built. Its early in the morning, and am getting ready to go to my local average job. So I feel in the darkness to see if I can get my mulika mwizi phone to use as a light since electricity in this flat was disconnected a long time ago when politicians had brains that was in the year 2 AD.
I notice that the local network provider has sent me a message to remind me to pay their outstanding balance or I will be black listed, that is a polite way of saying pay our debt you fucking idiot or we will kick your broke ass out of our network, I should be throwing away that sim card and hama to their rival network. Incur more debts, then Hama till am blacklisted in all networks at that juncture i will sell my phone to buy keg beer at my local average pub. I notice the date on my phone, its about that time of the month when my land lord - who is a top graduate of the Land lord training institute of tenant harassment and crude rent collection method studies - should be coming to claim his overdue rent.
After inventing so many funerals of important relatives to delay paying rent I notice that through my stories I have no more relatives left alive so I should come up with a new story to avoid paying rent for the next two months. The land lord quit his threats of reporting me to the local chief after he discovered that me and the chief are keg drinking buddies at the local pub. Of course the chief never buys. Its us who finance his drinking life and that renders us immune from our creditors.
I should be going to the local shop to take milk and bread on credit and promise to pay end month along with the rest of the debt I owe the shop.
