Never Say

According to the Swedish Ambassador to Kenya, Bo Goransson, here are some expressions which Kenyans should never use:

– “It is our time to eat”
– “Zero tolerance on corruption”
– “That’s what I am entitled to!”
– (my favourite)”Let’s have a seminar” – the more poverty-related the problem, the more exclusive the venue. Mombasa is the current favourite
and many more

    I read this in the nation and found it both amusing and sad. I planned to blog about it but you beat me to it and another letter on that same page riled me more so I blogged about that instead. Love your blog-informative and interesting.
