ole


from Head on Corrishon by the talented and amazing KJ. Posted by Hello
Please KJ could you blog?
Update:For Xenon, the translation of the above toon. "Ole Ntimama, we know of, but this ole brosekui, whose child is he?"
note:Ole Ntimama is a Kenyan Maasai member of parliament. In african culture, most people are identified by their parentage. Thus 'Child of' = 'Ole' in Maasai tribe, 'Wa' in Kikuyu, 'Arap' in Kalenjin etc.
I bet you already gathered about the 'nolle prosequi', which is latin legalese for what AG wako did about LucySlap and CholmondeleyShot.

I'm loving this. I feel a certain spell of infatuation with my fellow Kenyans coming on. BTW, there's a most brilliant Kenyan academic who has done a paper on those games we used to play as kids, where we were outinsulting each other, and without a doubt my favourite is "Ati you guys are so many in your house that when fithe comes home he greets you by saying "My Fellow Kenyans..."
Okay, I have a very basic sense of humuor, it's true.

afromusing,
the academic in question is called Joyce W. Nyairo, from Moi University, and she is hot!!! Honestly, she may be the best academic we've produced in oh, the last twenty years. She takes urban culture seriously, where we drink, why, what we talk about, what's going on in the estates, what the popular idioms are: she RULES. Unfortunately, for the fate of the particular paper I had in mind, she hasn't published it yet. But I think I can reveal another of its gems: "Ati you guys are so many in your house than in order to feed everyone you have to photocopy the chapos!" and "Ati you guys are so many in your house when it comes time to eat you have to hold elections!" Or this one, "Ati your house is so big you have street vendors in the corridors!" or even "ati your house is so small there isn't even room to change your mind.". She's got hundreds and hundreds of these, all mixed up in the most perfect analysis you ever want to see. She relates all this to housing shortages, to the distrust of politicians with their fake "families", to the informal economy, to the failures of multi-party democracy, etc. etc. etc. Tres, tres, ice. She may be the most intelligent Kenyan alive today, and I KNOW HER!!!

Pole sana, As a non-swahili/gikuyu speaker here, a "lurker" as it were, someone who has been to and loves Kenya (lived there for 2 years in the 80's) would someone be able to translate the 'toon for me please?

Also, someone left this: "tondu rimwe tutimenyaga thiomi ici cia thi" on my blog, but I don't know what it means... if you wouldn't mind terribly, please translate it as well.

Thanks!
