Photo:Chinese Man Roasting Maize in Nairobi streets
Someone sent this picture of a Chinese trader in Nairobi busy doing maize choma in one of the back streets of the CBD. This is very interesting, the Chinese can do any job! You will not find a white/European/American person roasting maize in the streets of Nairobi or anywhere in Africa.
It is alleged that Chinese are even hawking second hand clothes on the streets of Nairobi and elsewhere, this is why City Council bribery magnets are getting fatter by the day.
We need to learn from the Chinese how to nurture micro enterprises like the maize roasting or mitumba hawking etc.
Soon the hawking Chinese hustlers will graduate to retail chain as our cash trapped hawkers stagnate in hawking forever.
