17 annoying phrases Kenyans living in Diaspora like to use
Diaspora folks may be the most condescending and annoying lot. But one thing you cannot fault is their immense love for their motherland.
While living abroad often gets into their head, they certainly wish things were different. They will also probably troop back home to live happily ever after.
While abroad, Kenyans will adopt foreign cultures and practices which to them, they are the best. To that end, with the adapted culture, they will criticise everything back home from the food to the roads and women.
