YOUNG MEN TAKING OVER FROM MAMA MBOGA IN NAIROBI
Mama mboga in Nairobi are worried about the increasing numbers of young boys who had taken over there work.
They claims that numbers of young boys joining vegertable selling at city slums and eastate is rising and very soon they will be jobless because the youth are faster in chopping vegertables attracting many customers majority of them who are young as they call them wana lika.
According mama mboga the numbers of young generation who cannot prepare vegeratables is rising and such group prefer to buy from young men who are faster in cutting sukuma and other vegertables.
Currently the new generation cannnot even chop onions and tomatoes which young vegertable sellers are ready to do for them and pack them.
And true to there character parents in Nairobi are camplaining that there doughters those days are to lazy to chop sukuma live alone cooking and that is why men are chopping for them tomatoes and onion which is gainst Africa traditional in which young girls learn how to prepare vegertables and cook from there mothers and grand parents
Those days going around Nairobi slums you will come face to face with lazy generation carrying pack sukuma including onions and tomatoes and when they cook they are half cooked,
Parents are worried about who will marry girls who cannot chopp vegertables and cook them. and to use the chance young men had taken over from mama mboga and they are at front line of preparing and chopping sukuma onions and tomatoes for women.
According to African traditional men are not allowed to prepare vegertables for women while normal women are not allowed to carry with them prepared fresh vegertables ready to be cooked at home because by doing so youth will not know how to prepare vegertables.
Men are now being blamed to controbuting to lazyness of there women by allowing them to by chopped vegertables including tomatoes and onions while parents are beingt blamed for not teaching there young girls how to cook and the importance of chopping vegertables them selves.
Cases of women being beaten by there husband fopr buying ready made vegertables had been reported in Nairobi and other parts of the Country.
History of ready made vegertables is traced in Nairobi Jericho and Maringo area in 80 when mama mboga used to prepare vegertables for men who stay alone.
Those men used to spend more time on work either at East Africa Industry, B,A,T K.C.C among others and women used to prepare vegwertables for them even some went ahead to book in advanced.
Some men went ahead to marry those mama mboga as second wife mpango wa kando those days because they used to take vegertables to there house when men are drunk and went ahead having affair.
Even today mama mboga are still using chance to attrat men and young boys.
What is happening is that some men dont wants to line due to high numbers of Nairobians waiting for ready made vegertables and mama mboga went ahead to take them to there homes. the same to young men and boys who are not sparing mama mboga.
Today Nairobians are bexcoming lazy and lazy and some cannot even chop onions and tomatoes vwery soon it will be pili pili Mama nikatie pili pili nini haraka, hata wataanza kuwakorogea mayai.
