    Kenyan's have one weird way of doing things...of course with a light touch.

    1.Kenyan's like complaining (Whining) they love complaining so much they even complain when they get twins and were not ready for it.
    2.Kenyan's are obsessed with prayers even in the middle of a demonstration some one says lets pray and everyone bows down and keeps quiet.... In a demonstration remember.
    3 Makosa siyo yetu and it never is,they just feel that things are not right and its someone else's fault Serikali, City council wanasiasa name it makosa ni ya mtu mwingine.
    4 The amount of tea they drink is unbelievable they have even become addicts there is no difference between a tea drinker and a pot smoker.the level of addiction is the same they even have headaches for missing tea.
    5 When there is a blast or an accident instead of running away Kenyan's run to the scene.
    6The matatu(Dala dala) is the most obvious of Kenya's unique contribution to the world, formerly run down jalopies.The Kenyan matatu is now a state of the art machine with in flight entertainment,custom made body work out of this world entertainment and color scheme.

    This is probably a variation of the "Grass is greener on the other side of the fence" syndrome. I am sure some Tanzanians have deplorable if not horrible stories along similar lines.

    One would even argue that these are really meant as self deprecating jokes and the emphasis on the uniqueness of Kenyans while possibly true in some of the given examples, can be argued to be universal or at least widespread internationally in most cases.

    Cases in point, while the geography and economy of Kenya makes it very easy for Kenyans to be tea addicts, one can argue the Brits are an even more avid lot when it comes to downing gallons of the stuff.Tanzanians are also known to claim the unique ability of running towards an explosion as opposed to frm it, a recent example being the reaction to the Mbagala armoury explosions fiasco. I am sure somewhere in the world there is something very similar to Matatus, I believe the Filipinos are keen on this transformation business tu (I believe it is called a jitney/ jeepney) of course regional variations abound.

    Take this fluff in context.

    Hilo la maombi ni kwa dini zote?? Au Wakristo tu??

    Tz Waislamu na Wakristo idadi ni karibu sawa: Kenya ni nchi ya Maombi zaidi as Christians are the majority!

    Even Tanzanians do numer five. A couple years back there was a bomb threat at one of CRDB's branches. Instead of people moving away they were just staring at the building, even the workers who came out from the building(ndiyo wasomi wanao run banks zetu).
