I pray that this learned friend is a virgin (and I wouldn’t be surprised if she is judging from her photo and attitude) who is trained in the sensual arts of kama sutra; if you’re going to pay millions for her, you might as well as get a real and skilled maiden, or at the least identify those that should help you shoulder the burden of dowry for an ashy diva with delusions of grandeur
When I saw a link to an article on a female lawyer who is not only looking for a suitor she describes as “tall, brown, financially stable, well-educated, and responsible”, but has also set a bride price for herself at Shs 1,200,000, I quickly clicked the URL thinking I’ll find a younger version of Julie Gichuru or even an Esther Arunga.
On seeing the photo that topped the article, I thought for a moment that I had actually hit the wrong link which had sent me to a website for 100 bob a day temporary house maids.
I took a second look at the ashy face, crooked smile, unkempt nylon weave, cheap shiny suit probably from a River Road stall, the second hand looking couch and generic louvred windows that made up the background to this tragedy of a photographic presentation of a delusion of self importance, and I quickly concluded that this must be either an April fools come late prank, or this poor girl has a journalist friend who decided to play a very bad national joke with her as the unwitting prop.
Hallo Ms Rita Muchiri, it is women like you who will end up being bitter grumbling amazons ten years down the line, marriage is not a commodity to be priced in cash, even if it were a commodity then it is a rare one and one that is getting harder to come by, something you seem not to have learnt in the long years of schooling you supposedly have had. Actually I would not even contemplate paying 20,000, let alone 1.2Million, for Ms Muchiri, in deed even if you offered to pay me the 1.2Million instead, I would actually drive a hard bargain and ask for upwards of that figure to accept your megalomaniac personality to bear my second name, in any case I would probably kick you out of Mi Casa in a minute if your attitude is anything to go by.
Then there was this gem: “The 25-year-old legal professional believes that an educated woman who is working and earning a decent income is worth more in terms of bride price because she is an investment to a man”… yeah right. I have news for you and those of your ilk, actually it’s like the worst kept secret anyway. Men are visual, they will always go for the beautiful woman in sackcloth as opposed to the fugly one in mink, ufortunately for you you’re neither of the two.
