New word? Naah.. I’m sure you’ve seen/heard it somewhere…
For me, it is the word I use to describe those who have “peculiar” behaviour that is pretty Kenyan.
For example, a Kenyan travels to another country…
The friends: “Eh ebu enjoy yourself…. na uniletee kitu!”
Or: “Aki usikose kuniletea kasouve!”
Funny how they expect you to have copious amounts of cash when travelling. But I guess it stems from a culture where anyone travelling outside the country, and especially by air, is considered blessed/lucky and thus has the means to and is expected to bring gifts back home.
Remember: “Daddy/Mummy uliniletea nini” *while rummaging through briefcase/handbag*
I wonder if this is something we will ever outgrow…
