Hello Everyone, I will be posting funny short stories and some very real stories about Kenyan police. For those of you who don’t know, most of our police do not have vehicles, they stand on the side of the road and wave you over to stop you! They also shoot first AND then ask questions!
I was very politely waved off the road by the police officer. They must have a special class they take while training for law enforcement as every single one of them have the look of doom on their face when they first see you.
“Hello Sir, How is your day?” Then I smile.
“Fine Madam.” I smile and he smiles back, this is a good sign.
“Is everything ok?” Keep the smile on.
“I need a lift to Karen, will you please drop me”
“Off course, hop on in”
Make friends with the nice officer and hope he remembers you were the nice Mzungu (white person), they usually do.
This is common practice in Kenya.
Hope you have a few giggles with me and please leave a comment and tell me some of your stories.
